We can't imagine you'd like to stink out your friends and family with your feet. A days ride on the bike in the wrong kind of socks - bad move. Instead, slip your cycling shoes on/off without the fear of wafting your foot smell about.
Made with Meryl Skinlife yarn, these Castelli Impalpabile Socks will ensure your feet stay well ventilated, bacteria-free and as comfy as possible in your cycling shoe. A mid-foot support band holds the sock in place whilst cycling, so you won't have to keep pulling them up out of your shoe and a 3cm cuff protects ankles from scratches and oil, plus it's a little cooler than higher socks.

Q. What do a 19th century Italian tailor, a designer for the Milan Ballet and the first ever lycra cycling shorts have in common?
A. They are all part of a rich 140 year history that's led to today's most recognised brand in cycling: Castelli.
Throw in a heart attack on a famous Italian climb, family feuds, Olympic gold medals and controversy in the pro peloton and it begins to sound more like a Sicilian soap opera than the backdrop to a cycling brand. But then again Castelli is no ordinary brand.
Today, Castelli's scorpion emblem is arguably the single most recognised in cycling. Iconic is an overused word these days, but the Castelli brand surely qualifies.
We first discovered Castelli on our year long ride through the Americas in 2010, when our founder Liz (pictured) wore Castelli shorts and loved them, so stocking them seemed an obvious choice. But we're almost as captivated by the story behind the name as the kit itself! For the full Castelli story (it's quite a story!), click here.

Cool and pong-free !Review by Sarah
£12 for a pair of socks I hear you say ... I thought so too, but these are the best, most comfortable cycling socks ever worn. You can forget you're wearing them and after a long ride in 30 degree heat, the only thing that was still fresh were the socks ;-)
