Cheap Cycling Socks
Affordable sock deals for cyclists!
There isn't much you can write about cycling socks - they're a fairly straight forward garment, which tend to come in three lengths; short, mid and high. For the most part they simply offer a degree of cushioning and protection between stiff cycle shoes and your feet, preventing rubbing and numb toes. However certain models, such as those produced by Sealskinz, offer waterproof properties, whereas other brands have developed compression and thermal models, manufactured from such materials as Merino wool. The main criteria you need to bear in mind is sizing (obviously!) as well as material - this is dependant on your riding type and climate - and finally colour scheme. If you're planning on muddy Mountain Biking, you might want to give pristine white a miss, and aim for a darker colour which won't look ruined after one ride! For roadies, you may prefer your socks to match your shoes and bike. Either way, below are my cycle socks deals, which will hopefully save you some money.
