The 1950s motorcycle boom saw young riders emulating the TT Riders of the day in terms of speed, and the popularity of the often-worn surplus WW2 flying clothing available from D Lewis gave them the appearance of Spitfire pilots on wheels, the Ton-Up Boys were born!

To this day the Aviakit Seaboot Socks remain an essential item for those on two wheels, perfect worn inside boots on rides during the chilly British winter, the extra length and four inch turn-over top allows you to show them off, and helps complete the distinctive British look.
