Alpinestars Road Racing Socks
Great!...... But expensive.
These were an unplanned purchase when we came to the Revzilla store in PA. Having used them quite a few times now, these are super comfortable, feels great, and stay up (unlike some sport socks that ride down your calf over time). I wear an EU shoe size of around 41-42 and got the SM-MD and fits perfectly. I would definitely consider buying another pair; BUT I'll be real and honest, that the MSRP (~$20) for 1 pair of socks is a bit much.

Favorite summer boot length sock
I've got half a dozen pairs of these and love how they feel in the summer. High enough to go past the biggest part of my calf, so they don't creep down below the top of my boots. While not a great choice for when it gets cold outside, in the warmer months, these stay comfy. Last, I've been using these for a couple of years now and they don't seem to wear out--pretty amazing.

The Alpinestars socks are a must have if you have the boots. They are comfortable and they have good airflow. The durability could be better. They are starting to look fuzzy after a few washes.

They are socks. The threading stretched and now there are little loops all over( hard to exlpain). they are still comfortable, and thinner than my snowboard socks. Keep my Sidi boots from rubing my leg.

Great socks to wear in boots when track riding
Can't say that they especially cooled my feet down in my boots, but they seemed to handle the heat better than just regular cotton socks.

I won't lie i got these to fill up a gift certificate but they are great. They stay up all day long and are very comfortable. They get a little fuzzy pretty quick but not bad. I am getting more of these, they are the best socks to wear with riding boots hands down.

Great product, stayed up all day, very comfortable
Just back from the first track day wearing these bad boys and they performed very well. Quite comfortable on a very, very hot day at Sonoma Raceway, stayed up and comfy all day.

Fit is great. Pile badly after one ride.
These socks do everything they are supposed to do. Ride high, good compression and support, thick and warm, feel comfy, stay dry.
Problem is, even after trying a pair of track boots, they started to pile. After one ride, they look darn worn around the legs. Now after a few washes and wear they look beat up fussy. I still keep wearing them as they continue to feel and fit well and not losing their thickness.
I thereafter bought smartwool ski socks instead. They are much durable and look and feel just as good if not better, at same or lower prices.
