  • Floret - Socks

    The Floret socks are destined to become a stand-out pair in your sock drawer! Inspired by the awakening of nature from its winter slumber, they feature a bloom-like lace pattern near the cuff, followed by a repeating faux cable along the top of the foot.

    They are knit cuff down with a heel flap and gusset.
