Socks

Postby Sydguy » Mon Mar 18, 2013 8:59 am

Hi Gents

Fast post, need socks and at work!

Anyone used 'The Sock Man' - are his wool socks good for winter riding? Thinking 5 or 6 inch is the go.

Any comments? Or other options for around $10 to 13 a pair?

Thanks
JM

I wear Endura Baa Baa socks. A bit thin but I really like them. Sometimes wear 2 pairs if it's cold.

Yup sorry The Sock Guy - thats the one.

If they are half decent I'll give them a shot!

Anyone know?

Done! Two out of two cyclists can't be wrong - that is 100% in my book!

I'll grab 1 pair for sizing then go a bit nuts! Try to post a little review back.

I wear L/XL and I am a 10 to 10.5/45 to 46 shoe size.

If shipping is a bust, try ordering from CRC. $10 post.

Most importantly, if you don't think that the sock goes up your calf enough make sure to buy the next size up...
