These socks have big diamonds and small diamonds and several different sections. The diamonds grow out of the ribbed cuff, fade back into ribbing at the toe and one of the diamonds even creeps into the heel flap.

It has a flap and gusset heel, which can be easily adapted for a higher instep and comes in three sizes. The socks are designed to be worn with 0.5-0.75”(1.5-2)cm negative ease.
