Shackleton Skiddaw Wool Boot Socks
Wear with walking boots, wellington boots or casual footwear in the winter to fight the cold. Inspired by the socks that would have been worn on an expedition to the South Pole.
Designed using the photography documenting the expeditions, it is based on the type of items worn by Shackleton and the crews of the Nimrod and Endurance ships to the Antarctic. Wool is still favoured by modern explorers today for its ability to stay warm when wet, and dry fast. Featuring sole cushioning and low grip tops for comfort, warmth and breathability. Carry Shackleton’s inspiring words close, with the quote on the label:
"It is in our nature to go out into the unknown."
Approximately fits men's shoe sizes 7-13.
Material: 100% Lambswool
Washable: Hand Wash and dry flat, or dry clean
