If you prefer to rock a mid-height sock in the warmer weather, without going too tall. the Castelli Entrata 9 Sock could be perfect for you. You get the support and mild compression that holds the cuff in place, along with proper support, cushioning and excellent breathability.
The 9cm cuff height is tame by modern standards, but that is okay! It is a perfect height that at the very least allows you to add complementary tan lines versus your taller socks. You still get some crucial Achilles tendon support and a super clean fit. While each zone employs a different knit and overall fabric weight based on requirements, all feature polypropylene yarns that don't absorb moisture. A midfoot support band adds some arch support, while a reinforced heel and forefoot are joined for greater overall cushion. An open mesh fabric sits above and below the midfoot support, with a finer mesh traveling up the front of the ankle. As usual the designers at Castelli nail the details, as cyclists have come to expect.
