Open mesh cycling socks for hot and humid rides

Designed for training and racing in hot and humid conditions, Rapha’s Lightweight Socks have an open mesh construction for the very highest levels of breathability. The socks use a yarn created to feel very soft against the skin and which is also extremely high wicking, improving moisture management further. The footbed also has a soft finish for comfort, while handlocked seams and flatlock stitching throughout ensure the socks won’t chafe, no matter how hard or hot the ride. The socks also feature Rapha logotype inside the ankle cuff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LIGHTWEIGHT SOCKS - SHORT I know I'm out of step with sock lengths these days, but I didn't consider these "short". Came up well past the ankle, so only short compared to the "normal" ones. I bought them thinking the short socks I got in the City socks would be the same short in these. Nope. Very comfortable except for the height, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice socks but too long Nice material, colour choices, washed well etc, but the length is odd. I bought the short version, but they're much longer than all my other Rapha socks. Fine if you like mid length socks, avoid if you want genuinely short socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right Bought to use with Climber's shoes. Used in south of France in 36+ degree heat and they were great. Pricey, but a lovely product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable socks! We've been "under the dome" nearly two weeks and these socks have provided much needed cool comfort as I straddled the George Washington Bridge and headed into the rolling hills and muggy valleys of Bergen County.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light and form fitting. I love theses socks. I even wear them when I'm not cycling. They're perfect for the humid summers her in North Carolina.
