You can wear any type of socks and go for a ride, but cycling-specific socks are made from lightweight and breathable fabrics that keep your feet cool, dry and comfortable. Cycling socks are not your regular sports socks. Whether you are an amateur or a seasoned cyclist, a pair of right cycling socks will enhance your cycling performance.

Materials – Cycling socks are remarkable in the materials they are constructed with. Most cycling socks are made from polyester because it is breathable. It also excels at drying out quickly which can be woven into thin fabrics and wicks sweat away from the skin. Nylon and polyester feature the durability which is necessary for intense riding. Some socks are made from merino wool, a special blend of high-quality wool fibers that is neither itchy nor thick, provides the same moisture-wicking properties as synthetic fibers with odor resistance. Wool socks are ideal for longer rides as they keep your feet at ease and perspiration-free.

Injury Prevention – A small percentage of spandex fibers helps the socks fit close to your feet and calves preventing the socks from slipping down, which increases blood flow to the muscles used while you are cycling. Cycling socks also protect your legs from small cuts and scratches. Cycling socks constructed with compression technology help to limit swelling, especially riders who spend all day on their bike. Cycling socks helps prevent muscle soreness and keep you pedaling longer. Soreness can easily turn to bruising, and a bad blister can ruin your ride.

Recovery – After long or particularly strenuous sessions on the bike, a buildup lactic acid in legs which then swell causing muscle soreness is familiar for riders. Wearing a calf guard for a ride can partially reduce muscle fatigue and damage. Compression cycling socks or calf guard will flush out the fluid associated with swelling which will reduce the discomfort.

Make sure you measure your feet and calves for proper sizing. Unfitting and tight cycling socks will lead you to an uncomfortable ride, whereas loose cycling socks do not provide adequate compression while riding on the trail. Stock up for a purpose!
