Gansey-style socks inspired by Davos Seaworth, a character from George R.R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire. The chain-links and directional motifs in the leg represent his days as a smuggler, while the inlaid brick pattern on the instep is reminiscent of the streets of King’s Landing where he was born.
