Castelli Mezza Wool 9 Socks $16.95
Have you ever set out on a chilly morning only to have temperatures rise by the middle of your ride? Thanks to the use of a lightweight 100% merino wool, Castelli Mezza Wool 9 Socks are perfect for those “in-between” rides.
The Mezza 9 socks are designed to be as thin as summer socks (so they fit into your shoes easily), but they're made with lightweight merino wool so as to provide superior warmth and breathability. Such versatility makes these lightweight wool socks a terrific option for days when the weather doesn’t warrant a thicker, bulkier alternative.
Castelli Mezza Wool 9 Socks provide mid-length protection thanks to a nine centimeter cuff. They come in Black and White with a red vertical stripe up the back of the sock for a stylish, PRO-looking contrast. The socks come in three sizes -- Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large.
What community has to say
These Castelli wool socks are a work of art. The quality here is 10 out of 10. And 9 cm is the -perfect- height. These Mezza socks feature superfine merino wool that is thin, strong, and very breathable. These socks will keep your feet cool and dry, and thus more comfortable; and no odor, naturally. Wool is a super fabric!
I wear these socks on all rides from 45/50* to about 75*. These are very versatile socks. (In really cold, sub 45* weather, I wear Castelli's medium-thick Quindici wool socks).
Sizing: I wear a 45.5 shoe in Sidi (10.5-11.0 USA). I bought a pair of these socks in both L/XL and XXL. The L/XL just fit. The XXL fit better. If you wear a 45+ shoe, definitely buy the XXL.
Note: the white color is great but is actually a very, very light cream (the natural color of wool that is minimally processed). Made in Italy.
Awesome socks- Warm, comfy, and did the job. Rob the mountains of Carolina in 50 degree temps.
Warm Merino Socks
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Been riding with toe covers in the low 40's and these keep my feet warm and dry. Surprisingly warm for such thin material and are of good quality construction.
Love these socks! Great for 40-70' weather. I wore it today on a ride that started out at 50' and climbed to 80' by the end. They breathe great and I did not feel (or think about) my feet getting overheated by the end at all. These socks fit well too without any bulkiness feel.
...VERY nice socks
these are VERY nice quality socks. The 9cm cuff is just right, the wool is the real deal, these are thin enough not to be bulky under your road shoes, comfort +++
