Wrong colour or material? Or just the wrong length? Either way, if these aren't the right socks for you, then I've got loads more on my cycling socks page. The majority are regular pairs, but I do occasionally come across the odd waterproof or specialist pair from the likes of SealSkinz as well. There's only so much you can say about socks, so I'll keep it short - essentially I list any pairs which have been heavily reduced - this could be because they're an unusual size (typically small or very large items are the cheapest), or just because they're last year's stock - either way hopefully I can save you some cash.

Gore, or Gore Bike Wear as the cycling range is called, is a manufacturer of high end cycling clothing. Founded in 1985, it's first product was the Giro jacket, which offered wind and waterproofing as well as being breathable, together with the lengthened back cycle specific design. Two years later the Superconfex team (which will eventually become Rabobank) used this garment at the 1987 Tour de France. In 1992 Gore introduced the Windstopper, with jerseys and tights coming the following year. By 1996 they had settled on their now distinctive minimalist logo, and ever since they have strived to launch performance cycling wear suitable for professionals and serious recreational riders alike.
