We’re very pleased to have worked with the brilliant Everton fanzine When Skies Are Grey on the beautiful Dixie sock pack. The socks come in black, white and blue stripes marking the historic colours of Everton Football Club and the kit worn by legendary striker Dixie Dean. The socks are released exclusively on our online shop at 7pm on Friday 21 August 2015.
Dean scored an incredible 349 goals in 399 games for Everton between 1925 and 1937, the club he had supported as a boy, following his move from Tranmere Rovers and is still revered on Merseyside to this day. Dean is the only English player to score 60 goals in one season, this after suffering a broken skull and jaw in a motorcycle accident in 1926. Dean is a legendary figure among Tranmere fans and Evertonians alike
