- Merino wool socks. What's good out there?
Must admit that I have been most happy with the WB’s I bought several years ago; they do get worn for cycling more than any other. I bought mine from Krank Dirtwear in New Zealand as they were so much cheaper than the UK… an American sock bought from NZ and sent to the UK.Posted 4 years ago
What size foot are you? I’ve got a pair of Woolie Boolies languishing in my bottom drawer somewhere that got through a too hot wash and have shrunk. they’re fine in terms of function, but no longer fit my size 10 feet with any toe wiggle room. If anyone wants them for the cost of postage stuck in a collecting pot next time you see one – first dibs on here gets them.
Since swapped for a three pack of On-one / Planet X thickies – not as warm i don’t think but still pretty good, and for the cost……Posted 4 years agopeteimprezaSubscriber
You can get them direct from the distributor.Posted 4 years agoaaMember
woolie boolies are a great sock and are resistant to my toe nails which eat through sock guy socks with alarming ease. Woolie ators are also very good and imo a slighty better summer option as they’re a lighter blend.
Rapha’s merino socks are also nice, thinner than de feets, but, so far the only sign of wear is a bit of bobbling (they’re about 2 years old).
Imo, the raphas fit nicer but the de feets look better given the same wear over the same period. I also prefer a thinner sock.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Woolie bollies are great, and last well too, though a bit hot for this time of year. Endura baa baas are alright for thin ones but don’t last well.
I really rate the old Fox ones, they’re still available some places on big discounts but they’re more or less out of stock nowPosted 4 years ago
