I bought these socks as an xmas gift for my girlfriend. They match the flou accents on her frame and dafeet gloves. She loves them!
They are great on warmer days and hot races, as they are a little lighter than dafeet wolleator or specialized wool socks. And a bit thinner too, with a nice form fitting, tight feeling.
There is no much to say about a pair of socks, the material is comparable to other brands, the only difference is the Castelli logo. It looks very nice with the Castelli shorts and the jersey. I am happy with these socks and I am buying it and paying for the brand name. They looks nice to me.
I wish they would have it gray or black as I am switching to these colors, there is nothing related to Castelli it's just after riding long and using and washing them a lots of time, it wears off. It happens with all the white socks, so, I am still buying Castelli socks. I am happy with the brand and it's the only piece of garment from Castelli that is true to the size besides gloves and toe thingy.
I bought this kind on sale and happy with it as after 60 miles my feet like were not riding but had a normal day- very comfortable compress, they do not squeeze the foot and give a lot of air circulation.
