This design is our humble tribute to Herman Melville’s groundbreaking tale of Ahab’s monomaniacal quest to hunt down and exact revenge upon the fearsome whale, Moby Dick. As a genre-defying novel with a strong philosophical slant, Moby Dick has provided our own bizarre journey through the tumultuous currents of the hosiery world with both inspiration and tenuous guidance. While we have no desire to kill sperm whales, we can relate to the obsessive, single-minded – and some might say crazy – desire to achieve a goal at all costs. Indeed, getting our whale tail pattern right took nearly as long as Ahab’s voyage did, though with considerably less death and destruction along the way. Steer well clear of one-legged old sea dogs and harpoons while wearing these SOXKS.
