I damaged my left Achilles decades ago. Whenever I ride a bike, I need to be mindful of crank speed as higher RPMs will cause my ankle to ache for hours if not days. I'm 65, for context, and I wore these and the support is amazing. I was cranking over 100 RPM and had no pain or residual discomfort at all. Amazing support.
These are great bike socks. I've been wearing them a lot. They provide very mild compression, but they are fully breathable and fit very well into my bike shoes. Only problem is they are super expensive. Look for a sale.
I will now only buy Swiftwick socks after cycling for more than 30 years. They are the best.
Excellent design, quality, and fit. They do not stretch out, nice and tight, and wash perfectly well.
One thing for sure that you get Swiftwick, is total comfort in your cycling shoes.
Buy them ! You will like them too.
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.
