Been cycling for over 15 years and tried all brands of socks. Swiftwick socks may be a bit pricy but have outlasted every other sock brand out there. I loved my summer Swiftwick socks so much I had to get some Swiftwick wool socks. Quality is top notch and keep my feet and toes perfectly warm in 40 plus degree morning rides.
I don't buy specific cycling socks... I buy socks, and wear them. These are great around the house! Highly recommend for people with bigger feet too. As someone with size 13/48, socks are always kind of tough to get fit correctly or comfortably. These are roomy, and comfy. I can't recommend them enough. Yes, they are on the pricey side, but if you catch a deal, gobble them up!
Ive always worn typical thin cycling socks.These are a little thicker and provide a little more cush for my feet.Warm but still good ifor summer riding.Not cheap but well made and some things ----- paying extra is worth it. and nice ribbing on top of foot.
Man I love these socks. Comparatively high wool content (64%), good cuff length (7-inches), and made in the USA. Magic combo. Do I wish they had more colors (like Giro), sure why not. But that's not stopping me from getting more Swiftwick socks when I need a pair.
