Giro's best cycling socks are made in Italy. Fit and comfort are paramount, especially in a lightweight polyester sock intended to allow for close fitting cycling shoes. The trend of taller socks seems to have momentum and the Comp High Rise Socks carry the theme- upward. Giro states the cuff is only 6", but on most cyclists these seem higher. With solid dominant color in white or black, and an offsetting stripe of the opposite color, the Comp High Rise both simple and distinctive.
Giro set out to construct a good fitting sock with quality materials and a classic design and that is exactly what they accomplished. The Comp High Rise Socks's last is the same dimensions as their shoes, so the fit is superb with no sagging areas and a form fit. The material that was selected is a Coolmax blend. It has good wicking properties and will not degrade over time with wear. Plenty of elastic is woven in so you will be able to count on these socks to perform after many wash cycles.
