What is Red Socks Day all about?
David McLean Red Socks

As the Trust say on their website: 

"In 1995 one of our greatest New Zealanders did an extraordinary thing. He pulled on a humble pair of red socks and took on the most powerful teams in the world to win one of the oldest and most coveted sporting trophies.

"Now, over 20 years later, those red socks have become a tribute to Sir Peter Blake and a symbol of what we love most about being kiwis.

"Buy your pair from a participating North Island New World supermarket or online at before they run out!"
