    Sealskinz knee length? Never noticed them being that sweaty.

    I’d suggest going to an outdoor shop and look at walking style socks, here you see thin, thick
    etc and options that are plenty long enough.

    Football socks here. Decent ones are made from tech fabric so are wicking, they are also tougher than normal socks.

    Any crew length socks from sockguy. I love sockguy socks. I have some for riding in and some I keep just for knocking about in. They never slip, never too hot or too cold, don’t cost much and come in a kabillion designs.

    Went for a technical ride yesterday that helped me realise how much space there is for me to improve 🙂
    Picked up a fair few new bruises and scratches. One thing I wast thinking would be useful for next time is longer socks that come up to my knee pads – does anyone have any suggestions for a pair with good material that offers some protection and yet are not too sweaty etc?
    Thanks!

    I use more mile long running socks (normal long socks – not thick or padded), and Norfolk Bekele socks (ditto) – see ebay, I prefer the norfolks as they are easier to get on off. Mainly stops nettles and helps with brambles

    Also have sealskins for winter (warmer, thicker, more protection), see also ex army goretex mvp socks on ebay

    and football socks as above. Probably OT/daft but you can get small wendy ball shin pads.

    A decent pair of black merino socks. I have some Chrome OTC ones that are excellent and fit Over The Calf well. Any outdoor shop should have long socks.

    Good for not being sweaty would be some compression running socks although those might get cut up a bit by brambles etc.

    Who knew such a thing existed? Can they protect against getting a shin-ful of pedal pins?
