Imagine a vintage 3 stripe gym sock dialed up by the masters in Japan with luxurious, slubby yarn and fresh color. That's exactly what we have for you today with the Japan Slub Varsity 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. The cuffs are designed to fit snugly and stay in place. The heel and toe are reinforced to ensure comfort and durability.
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 hunter green, crimson red and navy. Slubby white yarn is knit in to create an incredible interplay of color and each sock is finished with a classic 3-stripe cuff. The socks are predominantly cotton, but there is a small amount of acrylic to add just enough stretch and ensure a flexible fit.
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.
