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.
