Black socks seem to be all the rage with pro's these days. Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a couple of pairs of plain black ones? I like the look of Rapha's but not at £15 a go!!

Marks and Spencer .... 3 pairs for £6.

The on the Endura coolmax socks is pretty discrete or get yourself some socks from all hail the black market and be 110% sexier.

So, there's this tool …
Seriously though, you can pick up black DeFeet's for less than a tenner, and they're great. Wool-E-Ators in charcoal are my fave.

Black socks for winter, white for summer..thems the rules.

I've got several of the most subdued styles of Save Our Soles socks that I bought from Planet X. Mainly the merino ones, and none quite pure black, but I find them extremely comfortable and good quality.

I'll second DeFeet. They're not plain but the logo is very stylish and subtle and they're the comfiest socks I've worn.
@Fringe: You don't even see my socks in the winter!

You should never wear black socks in Perth, Australia or you will get marked down as a country hick.
I was told this in a couple of bike shops when I went in wearing the offending articles.
