Hairy stockings aim to keep women safe from would-be attackers

(WFLX )--Hair stockings, anyone? The hot trend for women this summer might just be this pair of leggings that make you ladies look like you've lost your razor.

Not surprisingly,  this picture has gone viral.

But, these hairy man leg stockings are not meant to be fashionable-- they're supposed to be a deterrent.

A Chinese-based company created them to keep women safe from would-be attackers.

It's unclear whether or not these are available for purchase.
