Against the Stream
What do lemmings, high school cliques, and salmon all have in common? Group think. The desire to follow the crowd, no matter where it may lead. Off a cliff, adopting a fake valley girl accent, into a hungry grizzly’s mouth. Scary stuff!
“Be the engine, not the caboose." Words of wisdom from an elementary school teacher that left its indelible mark on the founder of this company. Going “against the stream” is a part of Soxfords’ mantra, and we strongly feel that a bit of unconventionality is a needed remedy for a boringly mainstream society!
Whether you are a thought leader, an entrepreneur, or simply a fisherman looking to tout your love of the sport, Soxford’s Against the Stream is for you!
Full Calf, Premium Cotton with Handlinked Toes
Professional, themed socks that are far from novelty but still keep you smiling! Fun and funky, smart and sophisticated - Soxfords socks are a hit anytime a little excitement is needed.
Size and Fit
Our socks are generously cut to full calf height with a nice wide cuff to avoid slippage, a terribly uncomfortable effect of less lofty socks! These are designed for a men’s sock style in mind, but we know plenty of lovely ladies who look fantastic in their Soxfords of choice.
One size fits most, and all of our designs will comfortably accommodate US men’s shoe sizes 8-14, women’s 10 – 16.
Please note that there are small variations in size between designs, and not every design will fit exactly the same. See Construction and Fit page for more details.
Made from a mix of 57% premium cotton and 43% nylon (except where indicated otherwise) to give the perfect amount of stretch needed to mold our socks comfortably around your shapely legs without cutting off circulation.
The mix also helps minimize shrinkage, while helping wick moisture away from your skin to help regulate temperature - keeping you cool in the summer and comfortable in the winter!
Handlinked toes complete the package, so there won't be any uncomfortable nubs of fabric to rub against!
