Summer is coming and with it the recurring problem of every man and woman: what fit to wear under moccasins and espadrilles?
This year Alto Milano comes to your rescue with the definitive guide to choosing the right ghost!
The invisible sock has many names: ghost, pedulinum, footsaver... But whatever you want to call it, it is indispensable in every self-respecting wardrobe.
They exist in different models and colors are you ready to discover the difference?
Let's start by knowing the three models of ghosts for men that Alto Milano offers you: Ghost , Over Ghost and Penny Loafer.
The Ghosts have a unique seam that starts from the toes and reaches the back, because of this type of stitches the ghost footsavers are exclusively solid color. If you love moccasins, espadrilles or ballet flats you will not be able to do without them, thanks to the very deep neckline that makes it invisible under every shoe.
The Over Ghost features a flat seam on the toes and an elastic on the back, which gives even more stability to the elastic sock. This type of pedulinum can instead be patterned, with prints and colors of all kinds and is slightly more collared than ghosts, a feature that makes it the best choice for monk strap shoes or boat shoes. The perfect accessory for those who never give up style, after all as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said in: The Little Prince; The essential is invisible to the eye!
The Penny Loafer have the same type of stitching as the Ghost but differ in the even higher mount making them ideal for oxford or derby shoes but not suitable for the more low-cut ones. They are undoubtedly a must have for those who do not like to show the sock under the sneakers, being of the right height to be invisible but still ensure the comfort and adherence of a normal short sock.
Do you know what all our ghosts have in common?
All types are united by the special anti-slip silicone system that ensures stability and perfect adhesion to the foot. You will never lose a pedulinum in your shoe again, Alto's word!
All Alto Milano ghosts are made of fresh cotton, a yarn of the highest quality, sustainable and vegan, which wraps like a glove and guarantees comfort and lightness.
The only exception is Bacco, our footsaver of the sports line, composed of a technical fabric that makes it perfect for all types of activities, from sports to the most daily, keeping the foot cool and dry and ensuring a feeling of high ease.
In our section ghosts for men and women, we have striped, houndstooth, lurex, bandana pattern and so on and so forth.
Now that you are a real pedulin expert, you just have to choose the right one for you and your shoes!
