This is a high quality sock. No irregular stamp. Very aerodynamic and sleek. It does run a little small, though, but maybe that's just how cycling clothing fits - tight. I got a size XL and it fits more like a L.

  • Question “How is a "cycling" sock different from other socks?”

    Asked on 7/6/2010 12:00:00 AM by delacuesta from central california
    • Answer While you can wear any sock you want for activities cycling socks have a few differences. Bike socks are designed as they are to be minimal, in order to allow a cyclist’s shoes to fit very closely while preventing the shoe from chafing and allowing the wicking of foot perspiration. They are thinner and a smoother material to reduce friction between your shoe and foot as well.

    • Answer Generally, cycling socks are thinner; partly to be lighter, partly to be aero, partly to transfer energy directly to the shoe/pedal without 'giving' and wasting energy. This is less the case with off-road cycling(generally) and less the case with boots or other active footwear compared to a stiff road shoe. I've certainly worn a 'running' sock or any thinner sock with my road shoes and 'any' athletic sock with my STIFF tennis shoes that I wear on my hybrid. Essentially, cycling socks are lighter and thinner than other athletic socks(and tend to be more expensive, given the 'reduced' amount of material in them :) . )
