Dainese Motorbike Knee High Sock
Expensive but worth it!
Prior to buying these socks, I had been using knee-height soccer sox with my Dianese TRQ boots. The soccer sox made my feet feel sweaty, didn't hold up, and would stink after a single day of wear. The Dianese socks fit well, are padded in all the right places, and my feet felt dry after wearing them all day. First time I've ever spent this much for sox, and there may be other socks out there that work as well, but I'm sold on these, and will be ordering more. I'll be interested to see how they hold up over the long haul, but I suspect they will last.

Who Pays more than 25.00 for Socks? I DO!
I bought these because the back zipper on the top of the Dainese Torque Pro boots was irritating the back of my calve. I had a thin pair of knee socks that helped stop the irritation but decided that these Dainese socks were worth a try.
When I put them on, I was shocked at the feel and fit. Almost like a very comfortable second skin that was tight yet flexible in all the right places. They enhance the comfort of my boots and eliminate that irritating zipper rubbing against the back of my calve.
Although they were expensive, I would buy them again. In fact, I purchased two pairs. If ever they were on sale I would definitely stock up for life BIG TIME!

Nice supportive socks
I have the RevIt race socks and these are similar in fit, style, and comfort to those. These appear to be well made and given it's Dainese I'm expecting them to last awhile. Well worth the purchase.

Its a pair of socks, what can I say
These are better than normal socks in my opinion and they feel much better on my feet.

Technical, but too tall
Let's just come out with it, I like socks. I wear socks all the time, I never go barefoot. I like bags and shoes too, maybe I should have been female... Huh.
The socks are very technical, which I do prefer, but they are way too tall. I mean, why do they go over the knee? If you pull them all the way up, they cut into your lower thigh, if you roll them down, now you have two layers just under your knee. I don't understand.
I then tried the identical mid sock, but it doesn't even come to the top of my boot, and that feels funny.
So what I ride with is my Smartwool ski socks. Perfect. I prefer the thin PhD ones. Padding in all the right places, warm or cool weather, breathable, tough, just the right height. Perfect.
Sorry to say, but these just sit in my drawer looking nice. They had the potential but have the wrong height.

Quality materials and construction. These socks were somewhat longer than I had anticipated, but overall great padding/support and fit.
I also ordered the shorter (mid-calf, I believe) length and will most likely wear the longer style for cooler weather. While I can't speak to the wicking properties, as of yet, these socks seem to be of high quality materials and are constructed well. Time will tell as to durability, which I suspect to be above average.

Expensive for a sock, but does what it says
This is a very sturdy sock and if you have the extra cash, I would recommend it. While not a necessary item for motorcycle operation, it does an excellent job of moisture dissipation from a sweaty foot in a high boot. The compression features were not really noticeable to me while riding, but the sock did not chafe or rub in any way during riding.

I love these socks
I bought these because the soccer socks I tried wearing were too thick and left my feet itchy at the end of the day.
These rock! They fit great, padding in the right places, thinner in others, allows air to flow, and not itchy feet. Save some time and order two pairs, otherwise you will have to come back and order again.
