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.

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.

Best lightweight wool sock?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've been abusing three pairs of these socks for the last six years. They've seen thousands of miles on the bike and are still going strong. The material is thin and fits perfectly without bunching or annoying seams. The merino keeps the stink away, and they're made in the USA... not much else you could ask for!

Note that the Wooleators offer no padding and no cushioning. Check out Defeet's running socks if you're looking for a more substantial sock.
