Constellation Women's Knee High Socks

Constellation Knee High Socks

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.

    Great Starry Socks!

    These are beautiful socks and the most comfortable socks I have ever owned. I am 5’11” and it is hard to find knee socks that are tall enough but these are perfect, with a little stretch.

    Love them

    I love all of the many pairs of socks I've gotten. Fast shipping, love the note, I believe in John's cause, and really enjoy the candy. This is the only place o get my socks from now.

    these look good with both casual navy pants or jeans!

    I ordered 4 pair, and I've gotten compliments on all of them! Hi - I never really thought of myself as a “crazy socks” person until now (I'm a grandma, after all)! I have to use knee socks year 'round b/c of a plastic orthopedic device I have to wear on one leg (goes from toes to knee). Right now in Michigan there isn't much of a selection of knee socks, so I hit the Internet looking for some replacements, and am I glad I did! I ordered 4 pair, and I've gotten compliments on all of them! I sent an email question and I'm pleased to report that I got a satisfactory response by email the same day, I think it was even a Sunday! I really recommend this company to anyone looking for a unique pair of well-made socks – I'll probably be hitting the 'site for gifts too! Thanks ~ ruthdetroitarea

    Great socks and very fast

    Great socks and very fast shipping. I loved the thank you note and candy included with the order!

    Love These Socks!

    These socks are so great! I love the design and they are very comfortable. The ordering process was simple, the personalized note and candy from John was unexpected and put the purchase over the top. I'll definitely be back!
