Sometimes an opportunity comes along that’s too good to pass up. In this case it was a chance to partner with one of the most renowned sock factories in Japan to produce a limited run of incredible socks. Made from super heavy, multi-colored cotton yarn, these are perfect cold weather socks.
Our socks are woven by vintage Japanese machines that were built in the 1970's. While these are not the most efficient machines, they are uniquely capable of producing thick and durable socks that you just cannot find anywhere else. 60 needle point construction provides the highest knit density while maintaining a plush feel. The cuffs are designed to fit snugly and stay in place. The heel and toe are reinforced to ensure comfort and durability.
As soon as you touch these socks you'll appreciate the combination of heft and suppleness. Each sock in this three pack is crafted from heavy weight, multi-colored Japanese cotton yarn. The textural element of these sock is what really makes them interesting. They have a soft hand, but the criss-crossing yarns create a lofty surface. The base colors are orange, olive and navy. White yarn is knit in to create an incredible interplay of color. The socks are predominantly cotton, but there is a small amount of acrylic to add just enough stretch and ensure a flexible fit. Throw these on with some boots on a cold winter day and you are good to go.
Quality socks made with these materials are typically priced at over $30 each. The Gustin model allows us to offer you a radically better value.
Our socks are only available in one size. They fit sizes 8-12.
