Been using Lidl MTB socks for about a year now but they need replacing and not seen them do them for ages.
Looking at Wiggle etc it seems socks are like £10+ for 1 pair. The sealskinz ones I looked at were £12 reduced from £16 for 1 pair or non waterproof socks?!
What am I missing here?!
Any decently priced mid rise socks people recommend?Posted 2 months agojoebristolSubscriber
Decathlon aren’t bad for socks either. I’m running either theirs (mixture of thicker thermal ish ones and some lower rise thinner ones for summer) or freePosted 2 months ago
MBUK socks! As far as I’m concerned socks are socks and as long as they aren’t too thick I’m good. I don’t tend to do much riding off-road in really wet weather for any length of time (Max 2 hours probably) and when I commute to work in the wet I have mudguards front and rear and use neoprene overshoes.chevychaseMember
Brigdale walking socks – the mid-range merino ones all year round, the thick alpine merino ones for when it’s particularly cold.
They’re bomb-proof, they last years (never worn through a pair), you don’t blister in them and they remain warm when your feet are soaking – and, frankly, they’re designed for people who walk 20 miles a day every weekend.
I don’t understand why a lot of MTB gear (shoes included) doesn’t take a leaf out of a larger section’s of society’s years-long tested technical gear. Walking socks for MTB is absolutely a no-brainer.Posted 2 months agomolgripsSubscriber
I never paid much attention, apart from not using normal cotton, but my wife got me some DHB ones last Christmas and I can’t believe how comfortable they are. I’d wear them all the time if I had enough pairs.
A red trimmed summer weight paid and two grey trimmed winter pairs. Don’t know where she got them from mind.Posted 2 months agozilog6128Subscriber
Was very pleased with the Ulvang branded (but subtle and otherwise plain grey or black so suitable for all use) merino ones I bought on eBay a few years back after a tip-off on here! Apparently 2nds but I couldn’t see anything wrong with them. For the money absolutely fantastic (they were something ridiculous like £6.99 for 6 pairs). Bought 2 dozen pairs but all the thin summer weight ones have pretty much worn through now so currently on the look out for some more! (the thicker ones are still OK but I prefer thin socks unless it’s REALLY cold. Never gotten on with thick hiking-style socks at all, always give me blisters!)
Seller had disappeared for a while but now seems to be back, although only small-sized socks available at the moment.Posted 2 months ago
