Organic Heathered Stretch Socks

What makes the perfect sock? Is it comfort? Absorbency? Flexibility? For Japanese sock makers Hummingbird, it is a just-right combination of comfort, performance, and beauty. Crafted with the idea that “useful” doesn’t have to be synonymous with “plain” Hummingbird socks forego elastic in favor of naturally stretchy organic Egyptian cotton. Each sock is woven to twice its size, then compressed to a universal size that can stretch up to 12 inches. The result is a supremely soft handfeel that won’t restrict your calves or cut off your circulation.
