Best Foot Forward
Made from organic cotton grown on US farms, Gina Locklear's socks are reviving an old family business. In a world before outsourcing, her Appalachian hometown was the "Sock Capital of the World." The industry dried up in the 1990s, but in 2008, Gina began making socks in her parents' old mill. With vibrant threads colored using eco-friendly dyes and a cushy fit that's built to last, this pair—decorated with stripes reminiscent of barcodes—is just one example of the quality legwear she churns out. Made in Fort Payne, Alabama.
