A mechanical knitting machine from the 1950's making Pride socks?
Let that sink in for a second.
Honestly, aren't they really as much a recipe for life with the eight colors representing the following:
Diversity, Inclusivity, Life, Healing, Sunlight, Nature, Harmony and Spirit?
Tube socks are back in a big way so to throwback to a little vintage and make the fit as inclusive as possible we came up with three lengths; 14", 19" and 22".
They are manufactured in small batches in Ontario, Canada on production knitting machines from the mid 1900s as part of our exclusive Actually Made in Canada collection.
The best part? We have scoured the internet and not found this being done anywhere. Are we really the only place on Earth making these? In Canada? On vintage machines?
Yes, it appears we are.
Fits approximate shoe size:
22" length typically fits Youth Thigh High to Adult Knee High or Over The Knee. The extra length over the 19" is ideal for 6' plus height and/or size 11+ shoe to achieve a good knee high fit.
Tube socks provide a very inclusive fit that accommodate a wide range of foot sizes, calf sizes and leg length so actual fit on you will vary. We think our 3 sizes will pretty much fit everyone.
97% Cotton, 3% Elastic
