Assos fuguSocks_S7 $61.95
Fugu for winter.
For those who suffer from cold feet, or who insist on riding in the coldest subfreezing weather, Assos has the fuguSocks.
These socks are made from a Merino/poly blend. The knit is much denser than what you'll find on the earlyWinterSocks and as such, is thicker overall. However, the overall features are the same. They have a thinner knit around the ankle and on the top of the foot, a heavier knit on the sole of the foot, and a compression band wrapping around the foot at the arch.
The Assos fuguSocks come in Black with Racing Stripes. They are part of Assos' winterPlus climaRange, which means 32-46\260 F (0-8\260 C). Your comfort range may vary. Sizes are 0, I, and II.
|US Men's Shoe Size||6 - 9||9.5 - 13|
|US Women's Shoe Size||4 - 7.5||8 - 11.5|
|EU Shoe Size||35 - 38||39 - 42||43 - 46|

These are the only scks I wear when its cold. All others are imposters.
Warm, comfortable socks
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I don't think these socks looks that great. I bought them because I figured they'd be very warm, since Assos tends to have the highest-quality, most functional garments as well. These socks are very warm and comfortable. The stripes down the front don't really do it for me... they make me think of being some sort of hoofed creature. But then again, it is a cloven hoof, so maybe these socks have earthly, demonic powers. I've warn these (with the fuguBooties, I must add) when the temperatures were in the teens, but only for around 40-50 miles... my toes were only just starting to get a little cold towards the end of the ride.
