We have always committed to making socks our science.
We are driven to make the very best product. With socks, there is no one perfect sock for every ride, run, or outdoor adventure. Just like there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to performance socks. This is a listing of our different models and what makes them special.
The original DeFeet sock, the Aireator, has been consistently upgraded and remains the gold standard of cycling socks. Affordable and incredibly durable, Aireator's are the most popular cycling sock the world has ever known. Available in many different cuff heights and either single or double layer cuff, the foot of the sock is the same on all of them. The name Aireator comes from the Aireator mesh weave foot top. The first sock to incorporate this type of open-mesh construction, Aireator's breathe and wick well. They are thin throughout for a lightweight feel and help maintain an efficient, close fit in performance cycling shoes. Made with Sorbtek Repreve fibers that are derived from recycled resources.
While you can wear cycling socks for almost anything, most any socks don't work for cycling. Cycling shoes have very specific fits and riding conditions range from the hottest temperatures imaginable to below freezing. Sometimes it feels like all in the same day. Our cycling socks are recognized as the finest available. We craft each model to serve specific requirements. The differences are subtle at first but result in enhanced feel for the rider and the ride itself.
