Buggin' Out


Designed by Stephen Houghton

What are little boys made of?  There are no frogs, snails or puppy-dogs' tails in this ribbed sock.  However, your feet will be snug as a bug with eight legged spiders crawling down the outside of the leg and across the instep.  Afraid of insects?  Turn the sock inside-out for a handsome geometric pattern--it's reversible.
