I wear a size 49 and have several pairs of Smartwool cycling socks. I get the XLs. The sizes seem to very, but overall they are excellent cycling socks. Other brands I have tried (Adidas, DeFeet) all run small. The SmartWool socks seem to be a bit larger and they stretch a bit more comfortably.
I have had the best luck ordering them from Sierra Trading Post or finding them in the Bargain bin at an REI, Lands End, or at an outlet mall (lands end). In the winter I use smartwool trekking socks as they are warmer and longer.
Those look nice! Where did you buy them? Shipping seems a bit steep on their website ($6 for $10 socks)
I bought my first pair at a running store by my house...when i decided to buy more i bought about 6 pair from some running or sock website, im not exactly sure. You can find a good deal on the overall price of each pair and shipping online
Ya they're pretty good socks, not too thick not too thick and durable. Ive put a lot of running and cycling miles on them and they're still holding up
Got the feetures and they fit really great. Look small when you unwrap them, but they stretch without creating discomfort. The whole "perfect toe" thing also works, no discomfort at the seams in front.
