Christian Hosoi needs no introduction, one of the best to ever grace the world of skateboarding. From the early Brown Bowls of Marina Del Rey Skatepark to the Skateboarding Hall Of Fame, through the ups and downs that life can throw at us, he has always kept his passion in check. His father Ivan Hosoi better known as “Pops” has had a huge influence on his art, skateboarding and outlook on life.
MERGE4 is proud to welcome legendary professional skateboarder, Christian Hosoi, to our family of collaborators. MERGE4’s Christian Hosoi capsule collection includes two classic crew socks: ‘Sacred’ and ‘Three Crosses’. Both socks feature skateboarding-inspired graphics created by Hosoi himself, with a combed cotton terry-loped foot, self-adjusting welt cuff, arch support, and a reinforced heel and toe. Printed on technically-advanced yarns, the socks are knitted with MERGE4’s signature ‘cult weave’ to uphold vibrant and detailed graphics as the socks are stretched with use. The y-heel socks are also athletically ribbed for performance, making them ideal for skateboarding and other action sports.
