Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love tall socks while cross racing, everyday riding and mountain biking. I guess I just like tall socks... Any way, the HighTower socks are great quality and are pretty tall, so if you have legs that resemble those of a bulldog, they might be thigh highs on you (just kidding). They definitely reach right below the knee, making them great for wearing when riding in knickers or adding a bit of warmth to your lower leg during a cold cross race.
