Dainese Motorbike Knee High Socks
I bought these to go with my Dainese TR cours in air boots since I read so many reviews about the boots hurting your shin. After riding once without these socks I was very thankful that had them. The boots cause some fairly significant discomfort without knee high socks, but with these socks the discomfort is minimal.
They look great, breath well, wick sweat away from my feet, and have added cushion at the shin which was just what I needed! I liked them so much I went ahead and ordered a 2nd pair.

My Sidi boots are tall which is great for protection but bad for summer use since little air is getting down them turning my socks into a swamp. So I thought I would try the Dainese socks. Surprisingly they worked great doing 8-10 hour days on the bike in 92F heat. They were hardly damp at all and best of all no offensive odor.
On the down side, the $25 price tag is steep for a pair of socks. Also the socks love velcro becoming firmly attached to my Sidis' upper velcro requiring delicate attention so as not to raise the sock's fabric weave.
The socks were machine washed and dried without issue.

a motorcycling sock?
Okay, I was skeptical. Now that I've traveled a few hundred miles in these, I'm convinced. They really are that good. A bit spendy, but much better than ordinary boot socks. Highly recommended!

Socks are like McDonald's...I'm Lovin It!!!!
Ok so I'm a 10.5 in sneakers & 11 in Boots & the Large fit perfect. They are marked at the toes "R" and "L" so the cushioning gets placed on the lateral side of your shins. Great venting in the summer, I never get swampy. Fall is fine so far, so Spring would be too. Winter I wouldn't recommend just because they are thin. I've had these for about 6 months & there's been no pilling & pulling apart of the seams, which is what I was expecting. Dainese really does pull no punches when it comes to head to toe quality. I'd say these are equal or slightly higher than Under Armor socks just because of the extra padding in the right places for bikers.

Money for Nothing
It's a pair of socks so not much to say about features or protection.. They are fine the first time you wear them. Like a lot of Dainese products they are never the same once you wash them. Mine showed pilling and distortion after only one wash on the delicate cycle. You'd be better off buying regular socks that are made to last. They feel like what they are...synthetic and overpriced.
