July 19, 2003 Japanese company Nissin Medico has released "spray on Stockings" that provide a run-proof, water-proof covering for the legs. One can of stocking spray provides enough coverage for 10-15 "stockings" and the ultra-fine silk particles that make up the spray are easily removed with soap.Two types are available, the "Air Stocking (50g)" and "Powder Stocking (90g)", both of which breathe well, wont wash off because of sweat or rain and have passed allergy tests according to the manufacturer. Once applied the spray dries so that it wont stick to your (or anyone else's) clothes.The Spray on Stockings are available in Japan at a cost of around US$20.
