The zero in the name designates the cuff height as you might have guessed. These Pursuit Zero Merino Wool Socks are the shortest merino socks on offer from Swiftwick. The top of the cuff will ride just at the edge of your shoe. You don't like funky tan lines' These are the socks you've been dreaming of. Even though they basically lack the compressive double welt cuff of the taller versions, these are otherwise identical. Swiftwick makes the Pursuit Merino Socks on a 200-needle knitting machine.
