Giordana is going tall. With their Men's EXO Tall Cuff Compression Sock, you get both style points and recovery advantages whilst your feet and lower legs are covered.
Compression is all the rage these days. So is the philosophy of ‘marginal gains.’ Put the two together and you know why these foot covers are popular. Some like wearing them pre-ride, some post-ride, while others wear them the whole day through.
The particulars of this sock are fairly straightforward. The sock is woven from a blend of Meryl Skinlife and Lycra. The Meryl is there because the fiber is light, thin, fast-wicking, and quick-drying. The Lycra is there to keep it snug, both around your feet and your ankles. To keep it super snug around your feet, there's a mid-foot band; sliding socks are no fun, not only can they be annoying, they can chafe. The weave, which is different than the weave in Giordana's Mid Cuff EXO sock, is designed to create the compression characteristics you need.
The Giordana Men's EXO Tall Cuff Compression Sock has a cuff height of six inches. The socks are left and right specific. Sizes run from Small to Large.
