The overall fabric content is 109% ? Not that it really matters. I'm buying a pair just for the look to wear bicycling.

Appear to be very good. We were out ice riding this weekend, 22 degrees and my feet were warm. Have not washed them yet so not sure about how they hold up to washing. Warm feet was my most important concern.

You can see my other review of these socks, looks like from back in May of 2010 - wow how time flies! Wife and I originally bought 4 pairs (back then $16) each of these socks for a 2-up trip across 16 states in 16 days (Cali and back) in 2010. These come in short and long, so wife got short, and I got the long, to match our size (and be able to tell them apart). In 2011, wife learned to ride, took over the 1150RT (bumping me to a 1200GT), and we have been riding 10-15K miles a year since then - with these same socks! Just last year (2015), after riding through the New England States to Bar Harbor Maine, the stitching at the elastic was starting to come apart on some of them. Also over the years it became difficult to tell the two sizes apart, so we disposed of the bad ones and consolidated them down to 5 pairs (of the original 8) that are still good. I should also mention pretty wife has always worn her socks folded down over her boots - which really stretches and wears on the elastic and stitching. Asking her why just now, she says she hasn't done that since she got her new TCX boots, but the old Sidi boots she had made the sock/boot combo "cut into my calves". My point is that holding up to that kind of wear for that many years/miles/washings is extraordinary. The only other piece of gear that has lasted as long are the 3 pairs (each) of LD Comfort base layer 'tights' we purchased at the same time - and are still in perfectly usable condition. Funny thing is how many bikes we've had since then; 1997 Honda Rebel (trainer bike bought & sold), 2004 BMW R1150RT (traded), 2006 BMW K1200GT (bought & traded), 2003 R1150R (bought & sold), 2009 R1200RT (bought & sold), 2007 K1200GT (current), 2012 R1200GS (current), 2013 R1200R (wife's) - all these bikes... same socks! If someone has owned and used these socks as we have and knows of better, I'd love to hear from you! Because I am looking for some new socks (to replace the worn-out Sidi Tech Road's described above), and I see they've raised the price of these from $16 to $24, which opens-up other possibilities in the value decision.

Excellent socks that fit well, cool well, and feel great!

When one is wearing heavy riding boots. I find that rolling the tops over boots creates a better cooling effect than allowing them to work down the calf and bunch up but I can't say that they are noticeably cool in terms of overall comfort. Definitely better than all cotton crew type socks so they are worth the purchase. Just don't expect them to magically cool hot weather feet in riding boots.

Having ridden for some 20 years now, we're always looking for new equipment. These are the best we've tried so far. Very comfortable, great fit and keep your feet dry. A little expensive, but worth it.
