Give your feet a hand.

When the mercury plummets and you're still committed to the open road, pull on the Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Wool Socks. Thanks to the magic of merino, the Elite Thermal insulates even when wet and sucks moisture away from your skin like a vacuum, so you can pedal through winter's worst without freezing your feet off.

The Elite Thermal Socks are made from Pearl's Elite Transfer Merino wool yarn. This light but warm material provides a natural defense against discomfort and odor and moves moisture away from your skin to keep you pedaling comfortably. To ensure comfort, Pearl shaped the socks with anatomic arch compression, a flat-toe design, and strategically placed light cushioning under the foot to help prevent chafing and blisters.

My wife got me these thermal socks as Xmas gift two years ago. I purchased a bunch of other winter/thermal/merino socks since then but these have become my go to socks when I need high performance. These socks are incredibly warm given that they are not very thick and my feet never get sweaty during rides. I usually wear these with toe warmers down to 40-50F and add a layer of shoe covers below 40F. Surprisingly they look like new considering I wear them at least once a week in the winter.

I use these socks in 45 and under degree weather. They fit true to size(I'm a 10.5 and got the large) and seem quite durable. During the winter months in Colorado I use them 2-3 times a week. No major wear so far and I like that they aren't so thick blood flow is cut off to my feet.

Thanks for the review Sterling! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.
