What Socks Do You Choose to Wear in the Winter?


How do you stay warm when riding in the winter?  For us it’s Gerbing’s heated liner and gloves, LDComfort base layer and  Need I say more for our socks….these work…and are comfy too…

  1. Similar. Gerbing jacket liner and gloves and SmartWool socks. And the regular riding gear. Good so far to -30C for short rides of 15 miles or less. One of these days I’ll try it at -40. I generally don’t feel inclined to ride long distances during the winter due to the uncertainty of a 30 year old bike hauling the sidecar.

  2. I haven’t had to worry about cold feet yet. I do have to worry about socks, as I can only wear wool or cotton, with a little elastine in them. Any artificial fibres (nylon, rayon, acrylic, polyester) and the skin just falls off my feet. The composition of the socks is a vital factor for me.

  3. I’ve discovered a preference for those expensive cotton motorbiking socks with the silver strands woven through… I don’t usually discuss intimate details in public forums/polite company but I am fortunate to have feet that never seem to sweat so the cotton works well for me in hot and cold weather, and the silver strands kill any would-be bacteria so the boots stay nice and fresh.

    If I lived or travelled someplace where the weather drops much below freezing I would no doubt buy a range of heated gear but so far I’ve never had the need.
