There aren't too many things that can ruin a ride faster than poorly fitting socks. First they are just distracting, then they start developing painful hot spots. Pearl Izumi comes to the rescue with its Elite Sock, which combines their precise cut with advanced moisture-managing materials.

The socks' new Elite Transfer yarn wicks moisture like crazy (33% faster than competitive brands) so your feet can regulate their temperature by sweating when needed without worries about moisture accumulation. That's important because sweaty feet are not only uncomfortably clammy, but they can lead to blistering. To say nothing of stinky shoes.

Smart design contributes to your comfort, too. The ultra-smooth toe design means that there is hardly a seam to rub against your toes. The fit has around the instep is enhanced by anatomic arch compression; these babies will absolutely hug your feet. Ventilation has been aided by mesh over the top of the foot that will help keep the foot cool while giving the sock a low-profile shape. The standard cuff height will give your Achilles tendon just the right amount of protection from your shoe rubbing, and enables a suitably cycling-appropriate tan line.

The Pearl Izumi Elite Socks are available in Black and White. They come in sizes Medium through X-Large.

  • Elite Transfer yarn, PIs best moisture-wicking technology, keeps your feet cool and dry
  • Flatlock seams and flat-toe construction eliminate chafing and bunching to keep you comfortable for the entire ride
  • Left- and right-specific ventilation offers exceptional breathability
  • Top-panel ventilation reduces sweat buildup and increases air flow
  • Arch-hugging compression offers comfort and support
  • Slightly higher cut feels comfortable with booties or pants

great fit and feel

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pearl Izumi always does a great job and that's no exception on these socks. They are lightweight, thin, and comfortable. I have used them for cycling, running, and with general athletic shoes. I wear size 8 us 41 eu and took a M which fit perfectly. Just the right amount of compression to hold in place during activity.

Very nice ip socks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wearing them now. They are thin and comfortable with special material on toes that allows movement and no constriction. The body of the sock is made to provide support and some compression. They are mid length (just above ankle) and the top has a sturdy elasticity band that is snug but not tight. Plenty comfortable for long rides in hot weather. Very pleased.
