Despite wool’s age-old reputation for warmth and cotton’s for coolness and moisture-absorption, many runners and cyclists are now swearing by merino wool
for exercise. Although this seems to be counter-intuitive, Levi’s, along with other garment companies are saying that Merino wool cannot only can absorb moisture and wick it away, but it then propels the moisture to keep feet dry.
These Levis Commuter Vented Merino Wool Socks, in a distinctive drawstring and tube packaging, are full of clothing technology to support serious cyclists and commuting bikers alike. The natural wool blend is woven with strategically-placed wind chill-resisting shields, zonal ventilation to aid muscle heat release and targeted cushioning
at the toe and forefoot to provide extra comfort while pedalling.
An anti-slip upper welt and arch support
band keep the socks in place, and specially-developed anti-abrasion yarn in the heels, toes and forefoot increases durability. The socks even have a reflective tab at the Achilles to enhance visibility. And, made in jet black, you could even wear them through the day in work, should you so choose!
