Item # DFT001B

Every season and activity.

In the yesteryear of cycling history, wool was the beginning and end of "performance" clothing. DeFeet hasn't forgotten that, and the Wooleator High Top 5-inch Socks take full advantage of the properties that recommended wool as the original performance material.

DeFeet uses a blend of American merino and synthetics for a sock that's stretchy, tough, and breathes in the heat and insulates in the cold. The mesh instep is taken from the Aireator model, and it also has reinforced toe and heel areas for durability in the saddle. The Wooleator isn't just for cycling, though. Work, school, running, winter, summer — whatever the activity or conditions, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more suitable all-around pair of socks.

  • Merino wool, nylon, and Lycra
  • Mesh instep
  • 5in

Great for hiking

Bought these on the recommendation of Adventure Alan and Andrew Skurka. They are thin, comfortable, dry quickly (super important), and are really durable. And they're affordable. Can't go wrong.

Avg. ride time: 5h 17m per week

Fantastic Value

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For the money, it's hard to beat the DeFeet Wooleator. One of the rare cycling pieces that hits that happy-wallet combination of durable enough to last, while being inexpensive enough to replace (if the event arises). They're thin enough to ride in warm weather, but heavy enough to act as part of a layered setup with booties for winter riding. They even have a new-school approved cuff height.
