This sock is the perfect boot sock because of its unique heel construction (double partridge stitch flap V-heel), its elastic nature, and the “bit of lace” effect of the pattern design. The construction of the V-heel is designed to be durable, yet durable without ridges or well-defined rows that can cause discomfort and pilling. The body of the sock is designed to stretch, yet retain its original form, just in case you wanted to wear a thinner sock as an under-layer. And if you aren't into hiking and don't wear boots, it's also a great sock to pair with clogs or a pair of Mary Janes.
