Should I foot the bill for Q ex­pen­sive bik­ing socks?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I have seen socks which claim to be specif­i­cally for mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ing. Are th­ese for real or some sort of fake news hoax? James Bun­ton, Hal­i­fax

An­swered by Keith A Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles Rid­ing socks are in­deed a real thing and there’s quite a few to choose from. The aptly-named Mo­tor­bike de­odor­ant socks are a long model and have a sani­tised fin­ish which means that you can wear them for a few days. They’re also shaped for left and right feet, come in foot sizes and have many other com­fort and sup­port fea­tures. Sidi do their Faenza socks but apart from look­ing (very) colour­ful I’m not sure what else they have go­ing for them. The Held Race socks are sim­i­lar in price and claim to be er­gonom­i­cally fit­ting with re­in­forced shins and an­kle. The same money also gets you the Alpines­tars Rac­ing socks, which claim wick­ing prop­er­ties as do the sen­si­bly coloured Klim Cool­max vented socks.

Mo­tor­bike de­odor­ant socks £19.99 £9.99 £19.99 £19.99 £17.99
