When the sun comes out, so do Portlanders, walking their dogs, pushing a stroller, or enjoying the Northwest beauty with their best friend or partner. Do it in style with a colorful, flashy pair of socks. Strollin’ features 6 neon colors against a variegated black and white speckled background. One sock is knit from the toe up, while the other works from the cuff down. And both are finished with an afterthought heel. Wacky!
