Inspired by aircraft #17962 "Skull and Crossbones". In May 1960, an American U-2 spy plane was shot down over Soviet airspace. Initially, the U.S. government tried to play down the incident as a stray weather research aircraft but later had to backpedal on that story after photos of the captured pilot and the plane's spy equipment were released. Needless to say, this brought unwanted heat to the Cold War and - along with another U-2 shot down over Cuba - reinforced the need for a new type of spy plane.

Heel Tread is a unique brand of socks that draws its inspiration from one of our greatest passions. Their collection is a tribute to some of the world's most renowned automotive icons. They design socks for the ones that skip a beat when something exotic drives by, for the ones that look beyond wheels and see art. From headlights, air vents, and heritage, they get patterns, textures, and colors.
