Thraw | verb: to twist or turn

Cables and eyelets delicately balanced as they twist and turn down the leg. These socks were inspired by Neo-Gothic windows echoing their ornate but perfectly balanced details. After the intricately cabled leg the foot is simply highlighted with a single cable column. A twist on the standard heel flap sees the gusset decreases placed under the foot; this creates a wonderfully fitted heel, while allowing the cable detail on the foot to take centre stage.
