Key West spa owner Nick Cockerill is the latest to take to social media to share his love of spandex and the people who make it possible.
In a series of tweets he says, “I like spandEX… it makes my day and it’s all about being comfortable.
The owner of Key West Spa says that he’s always worn a pair of Spandex shoes to work, because they give him the “comfort and freedom” of wearing a spandEx.
“It’s so much more than just a pair, it’s a whole lifestyle.
It’s my way of being able to express my personality,” he says.”
The SpandEX makes my life more authentic.
I don’t wear it for fashion reasons, it makes me feel like I’m on top of the world.”
Mr Cockeril says the SpandEx is his signature.
“I think the way it’s worn on my foot has changed it, I think it gives me the freedom to express myself more,” he said.
“People have become so used to it that it’s almost like they have their own private space in their spandecks.”
He says the key to the Spam experience is the feeling of freedom.
“You get to feel like you’re in a spanish beach house, you feel like it’s your own private beach house,” he explained.
“We have a beach house where you can be yourself, have a pool table, you can do whatever you want.”
He added: “I don’t know if that’s because it’s the right spandee or because it gives you the freedom of expression, but it’s so important to me.”
