Don’t overlook the value of buying good quality cycling socks. They may be a small piece of clothing, but they are just as important to your comfort as a pair of gloves. Wet and cold feet can sap your morale and physically dampen your cycling performance in poor weather. Look for a pair of waterproof ankle socks when mountain biking to keep your feet dry and cosy in wet conditions.
During the warmer months of summer, choose a lightweight, breathable pair of cycling socks to stop your feet from getting too hot. Compression socks are ideal for road cycling for muscle support and improved circulation. We stock a range of winter cycling socks using thicker materials like merino wool from Sealskinz that are 100% waterproof. Merino socks are naturally odour resistant, quick wicking and offer improved temperature regulation. Merino wool also stays warm when wet.
