Based on tube socks made in the U.S. in the late 1970s, these ribbed socks are knitted with a special knitting machine that is hard to find today, using low-count supple cotton yarn. The liner of the sole is brushed for a unique bouncy feel that only ROTOTO can create. The simple design fits any types of outfits from skater-like sporty styles to traditional ones.

About:

RoToTo socks are made by craftsmen and women in Goryocho Village and the Nara Prefecture of Japan. Sock making began there over 100 years ago on a single machine brought over from the U.S.A. Continuing to make socks based on the principles of “lifetime consumables” and comfort, they blend sustainable yarns including organic cotton, silk, and linen to create the best socks you’ll ever set foot in.

ROTOTO's socks can be made only with a combination of the right material, the right machine and craftsmanship. Their aim is to preserve the tradition inherited from their ancestors, while painting the future of the major producer of socks with a fresh point of view. We will keep trying to produce things that can be created only in this place.
