Being an outdoor enthusiast, I have been using merino wool socks for years. These socks are a great weight for cycling; not too bulky, but still provide enough coverage and warmth. They are typical Castelli quality. On sale, these socks are a great deal. I have multiple pairs that I rotate through during the winter season.
The number of color options on this sock is what attracted me to it. It is a lighter wool so it works well during the mild winter in Dallas. But on those colder days, I would opt for something with a little more thickness.
Not what I expected. Very thin was hoping more material. I wanted a thicker sock, my feet always get cold because they came close to frost bite while winter hiking years ago.
I like a longer sock and these do the trick nicely. They just spent 10.5 hours on my feet during a 200k brevet and they kept my feet warm and dry...great quality...check the sizing. I have 11.5 feet and take the XL
