Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing changes to what was a go-to product For quite a few years I have bought and really liked this traditional wool cycling socks.Sometime recently however Rapha dumbed them down. The main body of the sock is now a thinner see-through weave, with reinforced heel and upper hem. The effect of the thin weave has been to reduce the best characteristic of wool; warmth. So if you are looking for a soft warm weather sock then okay, like the synthetic team sock, but these wool socks are no longer a go-to sock in cooler (Spring and Fall) conditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I have been buying the merino socks for years now and up until this last order have been very satisfied. I'm afraid this last order of 3 pairs are much thinner than previous orders as well as being very small fitting and restrictive across the instep of the foot. One pair ripped when trying on!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No longer soft and luxurious I have been buying Rapha merino socks every year as they are the most comforrtable socks I can find, especially the white ones. The new version while still made from merino is not as soft and while they still wick well the wool is harsher. I am quite disappointed in the change that has occured. Please go back to the older ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's only a pair of socks? Style over function or function over style! No denying that Rapha have always focused on style - after all look at all those black and white advertising flyers. So to the socks - comfortable - yes very on a century ride. Better than the competition - ? The merino mix feels very "lush" and subjectively I'd say yes when compared to the Swiss competition. Worth the premium - probably regarding functionality; factor in style then yes. Longevity - yet to be tested; although given they are made in Sweden they will hopefully last as long as as a Volvo estate wagon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from i am dissapoint i received a pair of merino rapha socks a few years ago for xmas and they were the greatest, most comfy things ever. they died after a few years of regular use, so i ordered myself three new pairs online. the socks that turned up were nowhere near as plush, comfortable and attractive as my old socks... not sure if they've changed or i got the wrong kind, but i'm pretty disappointed in what look like some pretty ho-hum socks. oh well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable socks These are nice socks, and an improvement on the 'older style' Rapha socks. The socks are European made and appear to be of high quality. Fit is good, the socks are mid-length which works well and looks good. I've deducted a star (4 stars instead of 5) due to the socks being colour-matched to this season's Rapha collections, I'd rather see a broader range of subtle colours and feel a plain black and plain white sock is missing. I'll buy more and suspect these will become socks I wear for everything and not just cycling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable Comfortable, dry and oder-free, what more do you need? Great simple style and cut, although perhaps lacked the supportive knit construction so often found in other 'sports' socks. Sadly wore a white pair out in wet road conditions, and whilst this is something we will all experience they didn't wash well; with all but the toe and heal remaining grey. This remains the challenge of specifying high natural fibre's, and the balance between providing comfort but looking 'dull', not a great style, should have worn the black pair.

Is this Purple the same as the Brevet Purple Jersey?

Asked by: MalS
Hi, the dark purple is very similar to that used in the Brevet Jersey. They would pair well together.

I ordered these some time ago and now I noticed an "L" inside the two socks. Does this mean I got two left socks or there isn't a left/right system with these ones?

Asked by: _xml
Hi, the L in the socks refers to the length. There is not a left/right system to these socks.

How "short" are these socks? And where is this measurement taken from (heel, ankle, bottom?)

Asked by: RBB81
Hi, as we all differ in shape and form it is hard to advise exactly how these will fit on each person. They are intended to reach just above the ankle.
