Updated for added warmth without bulk, the Winter Wool adds terry loop padding to the footbed and up over the toes for ultra-fine merino comfort against the elements. The strategically placed padding keeps the socks comfortable in a cycling shoe without feeling bulky. Nylon is incorporated for durability and longevity in high wear areas, with a touch of elastane for a perfect fit.
Socks are sold as FINAL SALE. They cannot be returned or exchanged.

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

The sole has the perfect thickness and is warm enough for this year's mild winter (no need for toe or shoe covers). I was disappointed that after one wash they went from 8-inch cuffs to about 4-inch cuffs. It's not a problem with leg warmers, but shorter-length socks are not my style if wearing shorts or knee warmers.
I've been converting most of my cycling clothing over to Velocio over the past year. I purchased two pairs of Winter Wool Socks. They felt great out of the box and loved the high cuff height for winter (and preferable height). However, after one wash they went from 8 inches in height to about four inches. Still love the foot sole padding and would give them five stars if they didn't shrink so much.
I love these socks. Really warm
...so awesome I wear them for everyday, not just riding.
Fit the bill for what I needed, warm socks for cold weather.
