Stripe Socks by NOM*d
A Kiwi classic, Dunedin’s NOM*d have been on the fashion block since ’86. Featuring their signature logo and some mighty orange sports stripes, these New Zealand-made socks are a great injection of personality for your feet.
Bed Socks by General Sleep
When only the most luxe socks will do, dial up Tessuti and order yourself some ‘Sun’ socks. Made in New Zealand and available in two sizes, the socks are made from 65 per cent fine merino, 25 per cent brushtail possum down and 10 per cent mulberry silk.
Her Socks by Le Bon Shoppe
