This versatile design combines a sock with a legwarmer, in a uniquely cosy blend of kid mohair and finest wool, for even the chilliest climates.
Nishiguchi uses thread spun with a fine blend of kid mohair and wool. These socks are soft, and light yet will not disappoint when it comes to keeping your feet warm. Nishiguchi thought of customers in snowy countries when designing this unique combination of sock and legwarmer; pile weave envelops the feet, and the ankles are insulated with a double weave, just like leg warmers.
The history of this Japanese sock brand began in 1950 just after World War II. Katsuji Nishiguchi founded the company with a single hand-operating knitting machine in Katsuragi, Nara prefecture. The brand's catchphrase "Hakuhito omoi" conveys a deep consideration for the people who purchase and enjoy the brand's products. Everything, including the materials, designs, knitting methods and prices is thoroughly vetted. By demonstrating a commitment to high-quality natural materials and combining new and old technologies and decades of experience, Nishiguchi Kutsushita creates true timeless classics of incomparable quality and aesthetic distinction.
