Socks can finish off a cycling outfit beautifully and these classic British herringbone numbers from Vulpine are just the ticket.
Vulpine have brought their fabled ability to combine comfort, style and quality to the rock 'n' roll world of socks once again. Their fabric of choice is a merino-rich blend to create warmth, durability and comfort. They dry fast, and they're even less likely to smell than most.
They've panelled the merino in different zones, so that there's more padding in pressured areas, and less in areas to allow breathability. The Merino combats heat and cold, so these socks are ideal for mountain passes, where hammering upwards creates great heat, and descending can chill.
Vulpine's socks are cut in the following sizes:
Small: UK Size 3-6, Euro Size 34-38
Medium: UK Size 6-8, Euro Size 38-42
- 70% Merino Wool content, with odourless, fast drying and hard wearing properties
- Technical panelling, providing comfort in key areas
- Lightly elasticated, articulated ankle
- Contrast toe and heal
- Vulpine logo on sole
- Coloured stripes running along length of sock, front and rear
- 30°C delicate machine, or hand wash with mild detergent
- Dry flat if possible
- Do not bleach, tumble dry or dry clean
- Cool iron if you like your socks flat!
- Socks may contract after first wash, this is normal, they'll stretch out when you put them on
Vulpine was founded by Nick & Emmalou Hussey at around the same time as VeloVixen. Coming from backgrounds in film & design, they put their life savings and house into creating the company.
They now have a little boy, Millar, and a daughter Lyra. They've had cycling genetically implanted into them. The team has grown significantly through less organic means too. Vulpine have quickly become one of the biggest and most ambitious names in cycling. Crucially, office Jack Russell Lily, remains in a position of responsibility.
They've put in years of painstaking design, research and testing to create stylish cycling apparel that you'll actually want to wear both for cycling and for when you get where you're going. They've have made sure that it is all cut for cycling, with a classic British tailored influence. They've chosen sophisticated colours that don't just mimic other products out there. They've added innovations that are practical without being dull. And visibility features that you can wear with pride.
Vulpine has been a dream for most of Nick's adult life. He fell in love with cycling as a child, quickly graduating to pretty serious road racing and time trialling. But the enjoyment of cycling in all its forms is absolutely key to all the Vulpine team members. They believe we are all Cyclists, but also people with lives off the bike as well as on. We look forward to working with them as their exponential growth and profile continues.
