Not what I expected. Very thin was hoping more material. I wanted a thicker sock, my feet always get cold because they came close to frost bite while winter hiking years ago.
Nice socks for the winter rides. Slightly longer length is perfect for staying above your bootiesshoe covers. So far after several rides and runs these have held up well. Great for after rides too.
Being an outdoor enthusiast, I have been using merino wool socks for years. These socks are a great weight for cycling; not too bulky, but still provide enough coverage and warmth. They are typical Castelli quality. On sale, these socks are a great deal. I have multiple pairs that I rotate through during the winter season.
The number of color options on this sock is what attracted me to it. It is a lighter wool so it works well during the mild winter in Dallas. But on those colder days, I would opt for something with a little more thickness.
