Giordana EXO Tall Cuff Compression Sock - Men's $15.95
Tighter and taller.
Giordana is going tall. With their Men's EXO Tall Cuff Compression Sock, you get both style points and recovery advantages whilst your feet and lower legs are covered.
Compression is all the rage these days. So is the philosophy of ‘marginal gains.’ Put the two together and you know why these foot covers are popular. Some like wearing them pre-ride, some post-ride, while others wear them the whole day through.
The particulars of this sock are fairly straightforward. The sock is woven from a blend of Meryl Skinlife and Lycra. The Meryl is there because the fiber is light, thin, fast-wicking, and quick-drying. The Lycra is there to keep it snug, both around your feet and your ankles. To keep it super snug around your feet, there's a mid-foot band; sliding socks are no fun, not only can they be annoying, they can chafe. The weave, which is different than the weave in Giordana's Mid Cuff EXO sock, is designed to create the compression characteristics you need.
The Giordana Men's EXO Tall Cuff Compression Sock has a cuff height of six inches. The socks are left and right specific. Sizes run from Small to Large.

- How to Measure:
- Use your shoe size to find your sock size.
- Measure the circumference of your hand around the widest part of the palm not including the thumb, just below the base of the fingers. Giordana gloves are race style, if you have "fat" hands you may want to size up.
What community has to say
Great but watch size
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm a 10.5US and the size chart puts me at the end of the medium. I have to pull these on tight for them to fit. If you run near the edge of a size go up a size. This just gives me an excuse to now purchase the white ones in size large. Damn you cycling apparel shopping addiction!!!
Functional and well made
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These socks provide graduated compression from the mid calf down, are comfortable, and durable. They run true to size. These are my go to socks except when it is very cold and I need more insulation.
