I had a set of these socks for probably 8 years (with daily use) and they are so comfortable and functional. I finally broke down and go a new set. The new ones do have more cushion and it's amazing to me how long lasting these socks are. Merino makes them fit a wide range of temps too.
I purchase these wool sock when I brought a pair of the Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell shoe covers. These are great as it feel very comfortable on the feet. It's not to thick to cause bulkiness. I wish I brought a longer cuff version also to keep the shin warm.
Excellent quality sock. I've worn in 60 degree weather down to the 20s. They are a heavier sock but not overly thick. They do a good job keeping your feet dry. They could be a little taller for winter use, but otherwise excellent.
Get em on sale and get a bunch. These are simply the best.
Most resistant to odors (I often wear them twice)
Has a cute sheep on the bottom.
Buy them and you won't look back. You'll just look for more pairs.
Unless it is in the high 60's my feet freeze on the bike. These socks have come the closest to helping this problem. For the average rider who gets chilled feet, these socks ought to do the trick.
i have size 10 4E feet, based on the scale from website i fall into the large size. when the socks arrived i tried them on and immediately knew i should have bought the XL. buy a size up from your normal size they run small. also do not dry wool socks... girlfriend turned them into a pair she could wear... once i got the right size, socks workout well.
These are the only socks I ever wear. Winter, spring, summer, fall. Not hot in summer. Great fit, so comfortable. Thicker than most cycling socks but my toes need a little cushion.
These socks are great for all weather riding. I prefer them for cold weather and along with toe covers I can ride for up to two hours in mid to upper 30's without my feet or toes getting uncomfortably cold. Below the mid thirties I always add shoe covers. Great sock!
I've worn WB's for the past several years. While the V2's seem slightly thinner than its predecessor, the toe box is more comfortable. The height seems like it is also slightly higher on the ankle. I wear these year round and they keep my feet as comfortable in the summer as in the winter. They're very durable too..my older pairs are likely in their 5 year of use and still not showing thin spots. While they're not cheap, from a comfort, durabiltiy and cost per wearing, I feel they're an exceptional value.
DeFeet Woolie socks have been keeping my feet warm through a lot of winters. I cycle and bike commute year-round, so it's important that I keep my feet warm. Woolie Boolies have kept my feet warm riding in temperatures down to the mid-teens F, with only toe warmers covering my shoes. The wool is soft and not itchy. To top it off, DeFeet socks are made in North Carolina, USA!
