CLEARED FOR TAKE OFF BY AARON COLLACO

CLEARED FOR TAKE OFF

"I work in the aviation sector with an engineering background, and am constantly inspired by the different designs I seeevery day that get us up into the air. This sock is inspired by the turbines of the new generation of jet engine that spool up on take off"

About his design in Aaron's own words. A glorious mix of engineering and creativity, which makes for perfectly unique socks. Is there anything better? We don't think so.

Many a sock lover out there agreed as this design took home a big chunk of the runners up votes in our 2020 design competition. So much so that we went ahead and made it into socks, along with two others to create the Shortlisters collection.

 

About Aaron in his own words;⠀
"Avid wearer of socks that are a change from the usual. When not exploring or trying to master baking the perfect cookie, I enjoy fixing and restoring things, imitating Duke Silver on the saxophone and partial to the occasional strum on the ukelele."⠀

A very big thank you to Aaron for his awesome design! He was a dream to work with.

The socks are available in 2 sizes and can be purchased as single pairs here.
