Dainese Motorbike Knee High Sock
Dainese does it all, and well. Most comfortable sock I've ever worn, and is absolutely spectacular inside a motorcycle boot. Great fit, length and style.

Best Socks I've Ever Had
I originally thought "motorbike socks" was an excuse to jack up the price on a regular pair of socks. Found out that was wrong the first time I put them on. These might just be the most comfortable socks I've ever worn. They provide support and padding in all the right places.
I normally ride with a pair of athletic socks that bunch up and feel clammy after a short ride. I went for an hour and a half ride in the Dianese socks. They stayed exactly in place and felt just as dry as when I put them on.
I'll probably end up buying a few more pairs of these.

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.
