These are the socks that I wear on days when the mercury dips below -10C (14F). Below that I team them up with heated insoles but if the wind is gusting it’s likely I’ll choose not to ride.I rode this morning for about 10 miles. The Twin Cities Minnesota area took a temperature drop yesterday. It was probably 30 degrees when I rode. I did pretty well, but I realize that I may want to consider some warmer socks for riding when it is cooler. What I wore today is a wool blend and just one pair. What is warmer? I have seen Alpaca socks, but never owned any. I also don't have any electric heated socks, but I might consider them.
What do people here use and like?
Wigwam's F2230 40 Below sock, is an extra cushioned thermal boot sock. The F2230 features an extra-smooth reverse toe closure and is fully cushioned throughout the entire sock. Excellent for cold climate use, the 40 Below is made of 50% Wool, 48% Nylon, and 2% Spandex. Great for work and play...
For the past season, I’ve also been wearing a pair of insulated waterproof Merrell Overlook boots that I’m quite fond of. For walking in deeper snow, I’ll throw the gaiters on and if I know I’m going to be dealing with Ice I’ll slip on ice cleats.
