        Trunk Transparency

        The Switzerlands 1.0 were our first generation of socks.  These socks were designed to be no-show ankle socks.  For many, these fit the designed purpose.  For some, the no-show ankle length was too short and slipped in their shoes.  This sock will ride low.  A worthy sock deserves a home regardless!

        Love them!

        The socks.. amazing! The mission.. fantastic! The people behind the socks & mission.. the best!
        This is my second order from Footy Intl. I kind of want to take up hiking simply because I know their hiking socks would be the bomb.

        Super great socks. I tend to wear them outside without shoes to get mail, take out the recycling bin,… Weird, I know. But these socks show no sign of wear or pilling. Excellent quality.
