This rendition of the trellis theme evokes a lush midsummer garden in deep, cool shade. The toe-shaping decreases nudge the diamonds of the trellis into an intriguing half-star around the toe. The diagonal trellis lines arc in graceful symmetry up the leg from the sole, due to the instep shaping. There’s a lot for the wearer to see when when looking down on these socks from above!
