These stripy "longstockings" were inspired by Astrid Lindgren’s stories about the irrepressible, fiercely independent redhead with pigtails who could handle anything life threw at her.  Decreases down the back of the calf and elastic in the ribbing help keep these from sliding down when you’re on the go.  And when you’re wearing them, you just might feel like Pippi--the strongest girl in the world!
