HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
My Girlfriend’s
Favorite Socks

I DECIDED TO LOOK for a pair of versatile socks that would go well with sneakers and leather shoes alike –and found them in the Eco Low-gauged socks. A lightweight mixture of non-dyed organic cotton and recycled cotton, these socks are made with an old-style knitting machine, smoothly weaving in a combination of new and old. My girlfriend asked me if she could borrow them for her upcoming interview. She walked taller than ever before, got the job…and never returned the socks.

RO TO TO HAS PERFECTED the craft of giving our feet the attention they need. The design, color and pattern of each sock is developed by craftsmen in Japan's largest sock producing region, Nara Prefecture. In many cases, new yarn blends are created specifically to match the design of a sock. With a focus on quality construction, Ro To To is intent on delivering the ultimate unisex comfort socks. 

My first pair were perfect trail running socks, made from a unique blend of shrink-resistant merino wool and special stretch yarn. Once worn , washed and rinsed, quickly my girlfriend was convinced … she moved the Trail Magic Socks into her drawer.










BY THIS POINT, I had no choice but to return to Ro To To, where I found The Comfy Room Nordic socks, a contemporary take on classic fisherman's socks. I don’t think it will be long until they're missing.

Lesson learned: buy two pairs.

What we wear on our feet is an important decision, and with Ro To To, an easy one. Decide for yourself.
