There are different requirements for cycling socks, running socks and hiking socks. As there are different potential pressure areas inside a cycling shoe than inside e.g. a running shoe, cycling shoes also have different requirements concerning the material and design of a cycling sock. Cycling socks should not only be very breathable, but also feature a thin cycling-specific padding in the pedal and heel area. For bike tours on cold days, there are thicker bike socks with thermal insulation properties available to protect your feet against cold. Thus, buying good quality cycling socks for your next bike tour may even enhance your ride. Here, you'll find various types of socks for road cycling, mountain biking and touring.
Compression socks for cyclists
Compression socks are very popular among runners, yet among cyclists, too, they are gaining popularity. The long polyamide stockings extend up to the top of the calf and offer a constant compression effect by using materials with limited elasticity. Many athletes appreciate the positive effect compression has on muscles and circulation during sport and in everyday life. Therefore, compression socks are also used for recovery in order to prevent heavy legs or aching feet. Whether for long flights, long car rides or for everyday working life – compression socks are becoming increasingly popular. If you would like to feel the compression effect yourself, see here.
Waterproof socks for rainy days
If you want to ride in the rain or splash through puddles, waterproof cycling socks will be a good option for you. Those waterproof socks are particularly used for mountain biking. Their integrated wind- and waterproof membrane prevents penetration of moisture through the material. Thus, they keep your feet dry during outdoor activities in wet conditions. Additional features like a cuff seal make sure water that is running down your legs won't enter the waterproof socks either. As most waterproof cycling socks are used on cold days or in the winter, many manufacturers have equipped their socks with appropriate insulating materials like merino wool to keep your feet dry and warm.
