The knee-high socks
#What are knee-highs? #
The knee-high is the result of the evolution of the bottom throughout history. In ancient times, stockings were worn like topshoes and reached halfway up the thigh. With the evolution of morals and ways of dressing, knee-highs appeared (as opposed to stockings). These are long socks that reach just below the knee.
# Why wear knee-highs?
When Mes Chaussettes Rouges was created, it was first of all to promote the mi-bas. Indeed, with these high socks, we are no longer afraid of having socks that pull corkscrew and slip to finish at ankle level at the end of the day. As the sock ends after the calf, it comes to rest on the curve of the calf to hold all day long.
Moreover, aesthetically, a long sock covers the whole calf, making the perfect junction between the suit and the shoe, thus avoiding, when wearing wide trousers, to let your calf show.
# In which case don't you wear it?
Knee-high socks are popular all year round, but with fashion trends calling for tighter-fitting pants, the knee-high socks can't get through. That's why we also offer shorter socks.
