Add a sunny spring to your step with these cheerful socks. Simple ribbed socks always fit beautifully and the little cable twists add an interesting detail to the striking rib columns.
A twist on the normal sock construction, the gusset decreases are placed under the foot, leaving the sides of the foot open to show off those beautiful subtle stripes.
Available in eight sizes.
