New no-show fake socks are now in stock! We have a great selection featuring some of our best selling designs.

The ‘Masterpiece’ selection has undoubtedly been one of our most successful sock lines and we are now rolling out this range in the ever more popular ‘no-show’ style of sock. All the classics are there; from Leonardo’s ‘Mona Lisa’ and Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ to Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’ and Munch’s iconic ‘Scream’. In addition, you will find new fake socks featuring the wonderful classics of Van Gogh, Renoir and Monet.
