JC Briar



In the Oregon town of Yachats (pronounced YA-hots), low tide is high time for beachcombing. As the tide recedes and the Yachats river meanders across a wide bed of sand, incredible patterns form. River waves ricochet off the banks, leaving echoes in the sand before meeting the crashing ocean. Sinuous shapes repeat and morph, filling the bay with constant movement and energy.

These socks capture the spectacle of the bay, with crashing waves on the fold-over cuff, rivulets running along the instep, and pebbles strewn across the toe. With their anklet length and their light, breezy, summery feel, they’re perfect for a beachside stroll. (All of us at Patternfish are in awe at these-- Ed.)
