Shimmery appearance: Falke »Shadow« knee socks for men
Those interested in a change of pace from classic monochromatic men’s socks should reach for Falke »Shadow« knee socks. These elegantly patterned knee socks are made entirely of high-quality fil d’Ecosse and mesmerize with a bi-coloured shading effect.
»Shadow« knee socks from Falke are knit with 100% fil d’Ecosse. This French term refers to cotton fibres that have been mercerised. With each step of the refining process, plant-derived natural fibres are crimped multiple times, stretched, and treated with caustic soda. Cotton fibres refined in this manner are distinguishable by their smooth surface structure and satiny shine. Mercerised cotton is extremely sturdy, supports the absorption of moisture, and sits nicely on the skin.
Ribbed cotton sock—Falke »Shadow« knee sock
The sock’s fine ribbed structure is subtly emphasized by the bi-coloured cotton thread, which also creates the eponymous shadow effect. The toe, sole, ball of the foot, and heels have all been reinforced, which makes the Falke »Shadow« knee socks extremely abrasion-resistant and long-lasting. These men’s socks uphold the tradition of hand-linked toes. Before linking, the tube of the sock is turned inside out and secured to the linking machine by hand. Next, the exposed stitch courses are combined in such a way that no seam is left behind, eliminating potential discomfort. Falke »Shadow« knee socks feel great on the foot from heel to toe.
The family-owned Falke enterprise was founded over a century ago by the roofer and seasonal knitter Franz Falke-Rohen. The company remains based in Schmallenberg, in the Nordrhein-Westfalen region.
Falke »Shadow« knee socks are available in ruby red, brown/blue, light grey/lavender, dark grey/blue, grey/blue, dark blue/brown, black/grey, turquoise/brown, black/red, green/blue, brown/light brown.
