Scottish kilt shoes & Kilt Hoses
Kilt hose is long stockings normally worn knee-high with the upper part of the hose folded back down to create a thicker cuff just below the knee. They are made of wool or Acrylic or some combination thereof and are available in a variety of solid colors so as to match any tartan color. They can also be found in diced patterns, which are required wear for Highland dancers. The most common color of hose, however, is the cream, or 'off-white' hose, the color of unbleached wool. Pipers often wear brilliant white 'pipers hose' made of entirely synthetic fiber. Piper hose differs also in that the top of the hose has a 'built-in' cuff with a raised texture.
