Made for Salsa by Sock Guy from an acrylic, Lycra, nylon mix and in the official Salsa team colours - these socks are also available in several other styles.
They feature padded toe and heel sections for increased durability and comfort, and are held securely in place around the ankles by a taught elastic cuff.
Plagued by hot feet, I was pleased by the wicking properties of the material which kept my feet feeling (and smelling!) fresh even after several hours riding. The toe box and heel sections are more comfort than more minimalist designs and despite the tight grip, the cuffs proved unobtrusive and didn't leave tell-tale skin imprints.
Sizing is quite broad, the small/medium designed to fit shoe sizes between 6 and 10, riders with larger feet will need the large/extra large.
