Item # SWF0028


With a seven inch cuff, these Swiftwick Aspire Seven Socks reach well into tall sock territory. Whatever your reasons -- aesthetics, compression benefit, warmth, protection -- they're a great length, reaching just under the calf.

The Aspire Socks are created by a 200-needle machine process that yields a high density, seamless knit fabric. The process allows variability in the finished knit of the socks, as different parts meet different performance requirements. For example, the cushioned footbed gives way to the thin channeled upper -- both components playing a crucial role to increase your comfort. When you slip into a pair of Aspire Socks, you'll immediately feel that they're tailored for your feet. The arch band offers snug support in the midfoot, and the Y-shaped heel contour assures no bunching or overstretched feeling in the back.

The dense nature of the material all but guarantees durability when combined with the abrasion resistant properties of Olefin, one of the prime components of the foot of the sock. Olefin is a lightweight polypropylene fiber that Swiftwick sources from US manufacturers. Then the socks are created in Tennessee in Swiftwick's own factory, where they can oversee every step of the process to ensure tight quality control. The Olefin wicks like crazy to keep your feet dry, but removing moisture from your skin is only half the story. Olefin is also hydrophobic and will not absorb water, so the moisture transfer is complete all the way to the outside of the sock. You'll stay dry, comfortable, and blister free since the socks move with your feet and minimize (or eliminate) abrasion against your skin.

Several knitting patterns in the footbed and cuff give the Aspire sock a compression nature which promotes blood flow in the feet, improving flow throughout the lower legs. And as you might guess, improved vascular performance means reduced fatigue and speedier recovery. The Swiftwick Aspire Seven Socks are available in Black, Grey, and White and come in four sizes from Small to X-Large. It's worth noting that the fibers used in Swiftwick socks are colored during their creation. In comparison to socks that are dyed after knitting, this makes Swiftwick socks stronger and more durable.

  • Synthetic Olefin fiber dries quickly, breathes, wicks moisture, and resists the growth of odor-causing microbes while also remaining impervious to chemicals and perspiration
  • This durable, versatile polymer that won the Nobel Prize in 1996 produces very little waste during manufacturing, and is easily recyclable to reduce environmental impact
  • Women-specific design features a narrower foot to match your foot shape (also works with narrow-footed men)
  • Seamless prevents rubbing and blistering during long rides or runs
  • Olefin toe and heel provide long-lasting durability as well as great breathability
  • Nylon and spandex arch hugs your foot's natural shape so it doesn't move as you exercise
  • Y-Heel contour anchors the heel and moves with your foot, not with your shoe's collar
  • Lightweight top of foot encourages ample breathability and isn't bulky
  • Thicker Olefin sole provides extra breathability and a little cushioning to reduce impact
  • Compression cuff doesn't move no matter what you do with your summer day
  • Ankle height with seven-inch cuff prevents collar rubbing from running, cycling, or golf shoes and deters chain-to-ankle contact

  • Olefin yarn
  • Women-specific fit
  • Seamless construction
  • 7” height

Stay cool.

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

Swiftwick socks are simply the best. We should all have the pleasure of staying extremely comfortable and cool on summer rides, while honing enviously high tan lines that tuck perfectly under the calf muscles. Cover up those achilles and put these in your sock drawer.

Durable + Compression = Love

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Swiftwick socks are fantastic. Nice and snug to your leg, no sliding up and down., and durable to withstand many wash cycles. It is one of those socks that you could feasibly buy 2-3 pairs and rotate those through consistently and not see the sock break down. For those of you that wear out socks and take pride in it... Good luck wearing these ones out... Happy cruising out there!

Best socks on the market

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

These socks are perfect. Fits true to size, perfectly around the feet and, most amazing, they last forever. Really.

Best socks ever!

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

I've used swiftwick socks for the past 3 years almost exclusively. I searched and searched for the best running sock I could to avoid blisters while running. Probably tried 15 different socks before I discovered these, which was ridiculously expensive to figure out. I just needed something that wicked well to kep my feet dry, fit snuggly even after lots of use/washes, and something that had the right amount of slip inside my shoe to keep my feet from blistering.

After three years of high usage, I finally had one pair wear out. I also love these for cycling. I recommended these to one of my buddies to try for long distance hiking, and he also has fallen in love with them. I can't recommend them enough.

Consistent foot issues

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

I have had consistent hot spots during long rides. I switched to these socks before a multi day stage race in hopes that they would provide some relief. The compression has been just enough that the hot spots have been noticeably reduced and late race foot cramps have completely disappeared.

Only socks I ride in.

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

I own multiple pairs of the Swift Wick socks and I keep coming back for the consistency and durability. Ive never had the Aspire blow out, ever, or get loose. On the flip side, the compression that keeps them together is not overbearing.
Made in the USA is also a great reason to purchase.

Pretty Good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

I bought these based on some other swiftwick socks I have & love thinking they were the same. The others were merino like & a bit more padded. I like them better but these are nice. The height is good as they provide some support to you calves but are not too tall i.e. over the calf. They dry quickly & don't seem to get too stinky...

I'm a solid 10.5 & the large is perfect sizing. I would buy them again - they just were not what I was expecting.

love them

Great for Riding or Highfalutin affairs!

If you're the type that says "I draw the line when it comes to buying "Cycling" socks", let me be the first one to tell you that you should give Swiftwick socks a try...If I'm wrong, then return them.

Most compression sock manufacturers focus on the heel to the knee. What I dig about Swiftwick is their love for feet and making a sock that helps blood-flow in your foot while ridin. Read more about Managed Compression on Swiftwick's website.

Here's the reason I choose these socks over others in my sock drawer: COMFORT

My foot is between two different sizes in most cycling shoes, the fact that swiftwick ASPIRE socks are designed with a number of contour focused stitching through their 200 needle construction, allows me to fit perfectly in Sidi size 44 versus a 44.5 which is slightly too big for my foot. Read the product description on this product page and you'll see what I'm talking about.

On a side note: These are definitely the first socks I reach for when I dig around my sock drawer. I, like most of you, have a drawer dedicated to my Cycling socks. My other socks from the days before I discovered Swiftwick go completely neglected.

It's come to the point where I love these socks so much, that I use them for work or any highfalutin affair. Whether I'm on a bike, in a Suit or Tux, or just sportin black socks with my Chucks, the Swiftwick Sevens are what I wear everytime! FACT.


+ Made in America - Enough Said. I'd buy Swiftwick for this reason alone.

+ My feet can breathe and don't come out looking like prunes after a long ride

+ My entire foot gets to benefit from Compression

+ No color fading after 100+ washes

+ Socks are not stretched out after 100+ rides


- They are a bit pricey, but so are dress socks...I get the benefit of both in just one pair w/ Swiftwick


+ Most cyclists wear the ASPIRE Four socks, try the Seven if you want to try them for non-cycling use

+ Start with two pairs so you won't get disappointed from not washing yesterday's pair!

These socks rock

Need Socks to give you best Cyclist tan line, these are them, they look cool, stay up, and keep your feet feeling great. The white ones hold stains if you happen to get them really muddy and then wash and dry them.

I have been replacing my entire sock drawer with Swiftwick

I've been doing the same with my Cycling sock drawer, the other socks get completely neglected!

Great socks!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Very comfy and fit excellent. I like the long profile and they look cool too. They stay tight and cozy the entire ride and through the rest of the day as well.

Super socks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Since being given a pair of Swiftwick socks as a gift a while back, I will only buy these from now on. Super legit, keep their size after numerous washes, colors don't fade, and may get a whole season out of these. I personally like the longer profile, but the tan line they leave makes your friends laugh :) Makes your shoes that much better - Great socks all around.

After trying these, I refuse to try anything else!

    Figured I'd try some Swiftwick socks after all the high praise they get from reviews and the write ups on their websites. I didn't realize the benefit good socks can have on your ride until I purchased these! I'm a tall dude and love the 7" cuff/tall socks. These are extremely comfortable, durable, and do what they are supposed to do: stay in place, provide compression, and not produce any friction. No goofy seams or poor design flaws that you notice while riding. My wife even has a pair and never gets excited about gear, but she really likes her pair of Swiftwick socks and says they are superior to anything she's tried before.
