Jaguar House Socks

40.00

Inspired by Japanese house socks, these bold two-color socks feature a kittenish interpretation of a jaguar on the toe, and a motif of mod spots on the leg. Wear them whenever you need a bit of “Raaaawr!” around the house.

Adapted from traditional Turkish sock techniques, these socks are knit from the toe up. With increases across the hinge of the foot and decreases through the ankle, this pattern yields cozy socks with the best possible fit and unique style.

So what are house socks? Across much of Northern Asia, you don’t wear shoes inside the house, ever. Most homes don’t have central heating, and in winter, your feet get really cold!

House socks are extra thick to keep your feet toasty warm. They're so thick and cushy they're actually not meant to be worn with shoes.
