I have worn these socks for a few years as well as their merino line. They work and wear well with good wicking characteristics. They also seem true to size. My only complaint is that they are hard to find in stock, must be because they are popular, not. Bad problem to have.
Whether Biking or Running these socks are extremely comfortable with great wicking quality, snag proof, and keep their elasticity. We put in over 5000 miles a year and the socks are still in great condition.
these are the most comfortable athletic socks I have. I use them for biking, golfing and walking. The compression makes my feet feel good while active. No more seams or excess material hanging and annoying. Colors are very visual and add to the fun.
OK, I've never gone in for cycling socks before. I just thought they were over-priced compared to the more generic, thin, running-type socks I could buy for a lot less money at the local sporting goods store. Yes, I was wrong. WAY wrong! These are very, very comfortable. Sweat seems to dry a lot faster. They are supportive without being constrictive. And from what I can tell, they stand up to the washing machine a lot better than the mostly cotton socks I was wearing previously.
I ride 6000 miles a year in cold and hot weather plus various areas of North America.
These socks handle perspiration well, don't fall down and leave room for my feet to move in my shoes while still
supported well by my riding shoe adjustments.
I bought a pair of shoes with the round dial tightness adjuster.
Best shoe investment I've made particularly if you have any foot issues.
These combined with these socks are a sure fire winner!
Best sock on the market! Just the right amount of compression and and support without being too restrictive. Keeps you dry and cool. The colors are an added plus. They also last a good while. I've had some for over a year and the compression and elasticity is still holding. They're a bit on the pricey side for socks but they're worth every penny.
Very comfortable and supportive sock. My feet stay cool even in 90 degree weather. I got the fluorescent green color and have had many compliments on their appearance.
It is difficult to get too excited about a pair of socks, especially in ordinary weather when you do not have to worry about keeping your feet warm. But the socks do what they say and I like the vibrant colors (in my case red). So if you do not care about matching your socks with your kit, take advantage of the cost and get these.
This is my go to sock. More compression than most cycling socks I've tried. The overall support is really great. I like the cuff height and the solid achilles support. I wear
44-45 shoes and the large is a perfect fit. Colored are awesome. I like the hi - vis green,white and red.
I bought these colorful socks (pairs of red and flourescent yellow) mostly for visibility. Turns out they are super comfy too, not ultra thin traditional cycling socks, just a bit more plush. And with a 4 in cuff they offer enough visibility as a moving color patch to be effectively seen by drivers without being tennis-sock tall.
