These fun men's office socks celebrate the life of Denise Austin (unknown-1997), the Irish zoo worker.

During the Second World War, the government ordered the death of Belfast zoo’s animals in case the Blitz led to their escape.

Austin defied this instruction and hid Sheila, a baby elephant, at her home. Although Sheila ventured out on evening walks, her existence was largely unknown until she chased a neighbour’s dog through a fence and into their kitchen.

While Austin had to return Sheila to the zoo, she had saved her beloved elephant who outlived the war!

Made from luxury combed cotton, these unique socks are perfect for men who work in an office and are looking for some quirky fun. As the perfect gift for him, you can also buy these cool socks as part of our sock subscriptions.
