We are totally in love with these...smart and subtle 'above the line' with a fabulously quirky sole below - a bit like the Dodo Pad!

We offer you or the men in your life the perfect office sock. Ridiculously soft socks that add colour to the soles of men across the globe. Made from an optimal fibre composition: 80% luxury combed cotton (for softness), 18% nylon (for strength) and 2% elastane (for stretch), these socks have hand-linked toes for comfort, reinforced heels for longevity and an extra two inches of length to keep any hairy legs hidden! Fully machine washable at 40 degrees C. (Sock size 9-11).

In a range of 4 different designs, each celebrates the life or action a historic rebel - each pair comes complete with the story of its pattern:

Elsie Inglis (1864 - 1917) was a remarkable Scottish surgeon and suffragist. Shocked by the inequality of medical care available to women, Inglis overcame contemporary gender discrimination and trained as a surgeon, after which she established hospital wards and maternity units throughout Scotland. When WWI broke out, unperturbed by the War Office orders to “go home and sit still”, Inglis set up medical units across Europe and fully staffed them with women. Inglis’ persistent challenge to convention ultimately supported and saved many lives.

Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882) was the revolutionary who led the Risorgimento that broke the shackles of foreign domination and unified Italy. Having long sailed the world fighting for the liberties of suppressed peoples, the charismatic Garibaldi earned himself a reputation as a master of the sword. In 1860, he raised an army of a thousand volunteers, sailed to Sicily and, marching through the lemon fields, overturned the oppressive Neapolitan rule. This symbolic and significant victory was the beginning of the formation of Italy and earned Garibaldi a much-celebrated popular legacy.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), whose disregard for convention culminated in the influential avant-garde of Cubism. In his early years, succumbing to the romantic allure of Paris, Picasso mixed with an assortment of eccentric characters as he slept in the day and painted by night. He was even known to burn his portraits of beggars and prostitutes to provide warmth in his impoverished Parisian flat. His style developed as he experimented with revolutionary influences. In 1907, inspired by the power and simplicity of African art, he painted his Cubism masterpiece, the Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, which changed the face of art forever.

William Herschel (1738 - 1822), the innovative astronomer is celebrated in this pattern. Migrating to Britain at 19 years old as a budding musician, Herschel soon turned his attention from stardom to star-gazing. Dissatisfied with the telescopes of his time, he learned to construct his own and went on to build more than 400 during his career - the largest being over 40-foot long. Thanks to his new creations, Herschel found himself closer to the stars than anyone before.  His pioneering spirit and deep survey of night skies led him to new moons, thousands of stars and the discovery of a new planet: Uranus.
