The Perfect Mid-Summer Sock
Searching for the perfect pair of socks to round out your summer kit? Castelli has you covered with their new Tiramolla 15 sock, designed to keep your feet cool and compressed during long summer days in the saddle. As usual, Castelli made them with several tasteful colors and patterns to blend perfectly with your kit.
These socks are constructed with Meryl® Skinlife, which inhibits the growth of the bacteria that cause bad odor by using silver microparticles, and a pique-knit compression cuff to offer support around the ankles. A midfoot support band compresses and cushions your feet to reduce swelling with each pedal stroke.

Great, so far.
Initially, the Moonstruck and Bark Green (now with yellow highlights) colors were swapped, and I received the wrong ones. Bike Tires Direct was great about replacing them.
Unlike other Castelli clothing, this fits to size if not a bit large. I'm a 45 and the 2XL is a bit too big, though I can live with it. Not sure if they will shrink after multiple washes.
The socks have excellent quality and are lightweight, but not overly thin. The claim to fame for the material is that they are naturally bacteria neutral. After a two-hour ride, this held true. The socks didn't have a strong odor or a chemical smell. They had a faint smell of the inside of a shoe, but nothing gross. It seems to work and testing shows that it is effective over many washes.
Are they worth it? They are to me. Great quality, low smell, and most importantly, they match my bike colors! :)
