Need a last minute present for that cyclist in your life, then get them a pair of these...I love a good over sock, so much better than the thick neoprene rubber overshoes in winter. The thing with a good sock is that it should keep your feet warm but not overheat, simply keeping the chill off. I have warn these at temperatures of below zero and they still work a treat. They come up long to keep your ankles warm which is an added bonus and are not too tight on your leg too.

When pulling on a sock one of the common complaints is that they snag and pull threads on the material - so far this winter not once has a thread caught or pulled and they still look as good as new, in fact I have had these covered in road crud and have returned home with them almost grey. One wash later and they are still as good as new.

So what doesn't work as good I hear you ask. Well personally I would have bought one size down as the toe is slightly baggy but that's miner. However there is no cut out for the heel and of course I am now creating my own even with my limited walking, a design "fault" I think Endura should have thought of really.

At the £12 - £15 price bracket its money well spent for something that does the job. They come in white or black so easy to match up with your kit.

Go on treat that cyclist in your life with a stocking filler
