Cycling Socks


Welcome to the one cycling accessory that can trigger plenty of heated debate (are they white enough? Is that the perfect height?). Whether you cycle by the sartorial rules or against them, keep in mind the following recommended features:

  • Light breathable fabrics (feet can feel particularly hot when you’re working hard in the saddle)
  • Durable fabrics that will stand the onslaught
  • Moisture-wicking properties
  • Firm grip around the foot and ankle

Frequently Asked Questions

What socks are best for cycling?

Santini socks! It depends on whether you want high-profile socks, low-profile socks or anklet socks. But whatever the length, Italian-designed and made Santini cycling apparel is of the highest quality and technical innovation.

Are cycling socks different from normal socks?

A key difference is the additional padding at key pressure points around the foot. This is to care for the feet over long distances. In addition, typically cycling socks are made of fabrics that wick moisture and help prevent blisters, which could occur quite easily in normal day-to-day socks.

What is the rule for cycling socks?

It depends on what rule you’re talking about! In 2019, the UCI released a new rule:

"Socks and overshoes used in competition may not rise above the height defined by half the distance between the middle of the lateral malleolus and the middle of the fibula head”.

What does that mean in English, we all ask? Basically, the top of the sock should be at around the half-calf point. Assuming you’re not a pro cyclist, you should not worry about that rule too much.

However, you might also be referring to the infamous Velominati cycling rules, which stipulate that a sock should be like Goldilocks - not too long, not too short! We say go with whatever feels suitable for you.

What is special about cycling socks?

From a technical perspective, they are designed to provide the foot with all the support necessary for long sessions in the saddle. From a design perspective, this is a piece of cycling kit that can be a heap of fun as cyclists opt for fun branding, great colour combinations and inject a lot of personality into their overall look

Should cycling socks be thin or thick?

Ideally, you want them to be a little thicker than standard socks to support the foot, but they still need to be lightweight and breathable. Santini ticks all these boxes.
