  • Waves of Life - Socks

    The pattern on the Waves of Life socks evokes all the different shapes and forms waves can take - from small waves lapping at the beach to big, thunderous, crashing waves out on the ocean.

    They're worked from the toe up with their signature wave pattern evolving over the course of the foot and leg. The garter stitch heel flap creates a comfy, robust heel, and the gusset ensures a really good fit.
