Short socks only
Sock length is a hot topic in the modern peloton with a trend towards increasing length. Former Giro d’Italia winner Andy Hampsten is emphatic in his view that the cuff of a rider’s socks should be just above the ankle.
This limited edition of Rapha’s Pro Team Socks celebrates Andy’s famous ride over the Gavia in a snow-struck stage of the 1988 Giro and is available with regular cuff length only, as approved by Andy.
Made of a soft and comfortable stretch nylon fabric, the Pro Team Socks wick sweat efficiently and stay in position more securely than other racewear equivalents. With a breathable mesh upper, these socks are designed to keep your feet cool during high-intensity riding or racing. The fabric has added Elastane to provide more stretch, while the cuff – which features a special Gavia ‘88 design – offers improved support.
