These Constellation Knee-High Socks have far more meaning than you might initially expect. In Homer's Iliad, Achilles had a problem...an Achilles' heel, if you will. When Achilles charged into battle to defeat Hector, the seemingly-unstoppable Trojan warrior, he required armor to replace the weaponry previously stolen by Hector. Hephaestus, the god of metalworking and blacksmiths, responded to the need with the Shield of Achilles, a crafted piece of armor covered in the night sky's constellations.
We like to think that these Constellation Knee-High Socks are a perfect tribute to the image on that shield. Many believe that the shield embodies the spirit of life itself; a constant struggle to bring order to the chaos. So pull on these Constellation Knee-High Socks and allow them to bring a bit of stability to the chaotic nature of your daily life. Perhaps even a bit of light to a dark day.
By the way, don't tell Achilles about your new socks; he'll be quite jealous of how comfortable your heels will feel.
