Illinois Cycling Socks

If you enjoy riding your bike but don’t consider yourself a hard-core cyclist (yet), you might wonder if you need cycling-specific socks. Can’t I just wear basic workout socks and be done with it? Yes, you absolutely can. But, just as there are welcome details like subtly padded zones in hiking socks, certain characteristics in cycling socks make them more comfortable when you ride.

The smallest details can make a huge impact on your cycling experience. Socks, often underestimated, provide a wealth of comfort and relief while riding especially on long routes. Cycling socks are often a thin, high quality design with moisture-wicking and odor eliminating technology. A proper fitting sock can eliminate hot spots, keeping your feet cool and dry, while providing long lasting comfort in the saddle.

Generally, bike socks have the following features:

Cycling socks are thin and fit closely because bike shoes fit snugly and can’t comfortably accommodate thick, loose-fitting socks.
Cycling socks, like socks for most aerobic activities, are made of wicking, quick-dry materials to minimize discomfort as your feet sweat.
Many cycling socks include mesh vents on top to help feet stay cooler.

College Cycling socks are breathable.

Mesh ventilation panels, typically found along the tops of cycling socks, boost breathability and comfort. Many cycling socks also have flat-seam toes to prevent chafing.

College Cycling socks’ heights vary.

The height of your cycling socks is largely a matter of personal preference. As long as the sock comes up higher than your shoe, it can work. (Some cyclists even decide sock height based on where they want their tan lines.) Performance-focused cyclists (ones that shave their legs) might go with higher socks because of a slight aerodynamic advantage.

If you’re a mountain biker, then you’ll probably want a pair of higher, more durable socks to help protect your ankles and lower legs from brush, gravel and dirt.
