Top 10: Cycling Summer Socks

Why socks?

Socks are seriously cool at the moment. The hashtag #sockdoping on Instagram will load a whole load of rad, colourful and exciting socks to pimp up any kit.

Why?

Socks are always a safe bet as a gift: they’re affordable, pretty exciting and, when some thought has been applied, can be quite personal too.

Guide:

Socks, like shoes, come in different sizes. Makes sure you check the size guide before ordering. Sizes are normally listed in EU sizes.

Giro know what they’re doing when it comes to footwear, creating arguably the best cycling shoe on the market. They also happen to have some of the coolest socks to match. When it comes to socks, nothing beats a good pair of florescent bad boys!

These socks are also quite techy, since they’re designed for the pro team, meaning they should also be one of the most comfortable pairs of socks you’ll wear.
