The new Model 1030 'Shima-socksu' striped opaque 'nīsokkusu' from Legwear4Men are a classic design, but based on the famous 'Shima-socksu' (over-the-knee striped stockings) which are known and loved by fans ('otaku') of Japanese 'anime' and 'manga' worldwide, as they are famously worn by many 'anime' heroines! They come in the white/black, purple/black, red/black, orange/black, pink/black, yellow/black, green/white and red/white horizontal stripe. One size. They are made from soft, stretchy cotton/nylon/elastane, and are incredibly comfortable, and heavier and warmer than the existing model 1020.
So whether you are a fan of Japanese animations or comics, or into 'cosplay', or just like striped socks, these are the ones for you!
