An often overlooked bit of kit, cycling-specific socks are not to be shunned. Yes, you could wear any socks you want, but these cycling-specific socks from Gore are made from a lightweight, breathable fabric to ensure your feet keep as cool and dry as possible as you pedal hard - far more than regular sports socks.
Most high-performing cycling socks nowadays are made from man-made fabrics like Polyester. This pair from Gore is no exception. The material is a quick-drying, lightweight fabric that stops your feet from getting sweaty and keeps them fresh by preventing a build-up of moisture that often leads to blistering too.
For durability, Gore have included harder-wearing areas on the toe and heel area and they've also created the sock with fewer seams to prevent chafing.
These Dot Mid Socks with their chic polka-dot design will compliment any cycling outfit and we think they'll become your go-to riding sock.
- 95% Polyamide / 5% Elastane
- Machine was cold
- Toe and heel protection
- Sock height from ankle: 17 cm / 6.7 inches
When Bill Lee Gore founded Gore in 1958, it all started with a father-son experiment in their basement insulating electrical wires. It evolved over the years until they became recognised experts at making 'microporous' plastics - materials that let certain liquids and gases through in certain directions.
Sounding familiar yet? It should - this was where Gore-Tex came from. Like hoovers, velcro and sellotape, Gore-Tex has become a household name - today it's synonymous with waterproof kit that keeps you totally dry from the rain whilst remaining breathable and unsweaty.
But all waterproofs are not alike, and Gore-Tex remain ahead of the field for waterproofing technology, making waterproof gear like the ground-breaking, gob-smacking ShakeDry, that still keeps them ahead of the pack.
And now it's more than just practical and brilliant - recent years have seen them begin to create ranges that look every bit as awesome as they work - understatedly cool and flattering.
