The Tread Heavy Sock is a remedy to the question I had when I first started knitting socks. “Why is it only reinforced on the back of the heel?” These are designed for those of us who tread heavy in or out of our shoes.

This is a cuff down, heel flap and gusset construction with an afterthought heel option.

Enjoy and tread heavy!
