I do like a nice sock. There's nothing worse than spending a ride with seams chafing or a loose heel riding up. There's no danger of that with these Bike Race socks from Craft, Swedish masters of technical sportswear.
There are no seams and they fit snugly. Not only that, they also boast the Craft Climate Control System. It's not quite air conditioning for feet but Craft claim that these socks will either keep your feet warm when it's cold or cool when the going gets sweaty. More like a thermos flask, perhaps? I'm always faintly amused by the Science Burble that companies attach to products, although as these are a comfy and pleasant pair of socks, I'm not going to argue.
Styling is very plain. I'm not enough of an Essex boy to properly appreciate the white sock look (Goth black is more my style) but as sports socks go, these are pretty good.
Sizes are S to XL.
Nice technical bike socks but the black ones are classier
