Growing up, I remember ads for Blundstones, the Australian slip-on hiking boots in the back of my skateboard magazines. At the time, I didn't knit and the only boots I was interested in were Doc Martens. Fast-forward twenty or so years: I've traded wheels on suburban Philadelphia streets for knitting needles in the verdant Pacific Northwest.
On the good authority of a certain Canadian Harlot with whom I share the first five letters of my name, I finally gave her favorite footwear a try. These socks are my celebration of their nick-namesake: simple, comfortable, practical footware. Suitable for men and women alike, city or forest, these no-nonsense socks will take you wherever life's path may lead.
