The Yukon River Stockings are inspired by winter snowstorms that close down northern cities and towns. Thick, deeply sculpted cables adorn these striking stockings and trap warm air close to the leg for maximum coziness. The well-shaped foot will fit comfortably inside a snow boot (or keep you warm while lounging at home on a snow day). A wide ribbed cuff completes the upper edge and keeps the stockings in place.
