Growing up my dad would always talk about the lines of buildings and I never understood why he found them so fascinating. I mean, they are just buildings…right? All these years later, I now find myself looking closely at the lines of buildings, taking note of the flow, the curves, angles and different styles.

Recently, I found myself looking through photos of Medieval cathedrals. Every detail is methodically thought out to ensure not just function but beauty as well. The arching lines that create breathtaking ceilings are called Clerestory, and it is these beautiful lines that were the inspiration behind these socks.

Step into these cable-filled Clerestory socks, inspired by the world of architecture, and discover the beauty of lines around us.
