Alpinestars Thermal Tech Socks
warm & comfortable
Overall, the socks are great for cold weather riding. They are a bit long, as they almost cover my knees, but I found that it's better to cover too much of my legs than not enough, especially in cold weather. Nevertheless, they stay warm and dry. Great product.

pricey, but they get it done
I never thought I'd spend this much for a pair of socks, but it's worth it to me to be comfortable when I'm riding to work in the cold. These socks alone get the job done at freezing temps for about a 60 min high way ride above 65mph. Above freezing they are all I need. But since I have a longer commute than that, at colder temps I find heated gear is still needed. Once I'm at work, I can wear these all day with my gore-tex riding/hiking boots and my feet are dry and comfortable and temperature neutral. In fact, I don't even think about them when wearing them which just goes to show how well they work.

Soft and warm socks
Was comfortable to ride in this socks (under Joe Rocket Big Bang 2.0 Boots) - was not very cold, about 40. Kept legs warm and dry.
They seem to be very high - almost covering my knee (i have 32 inseam), but did not bother under pants.
So i recommend this product

These are great!
These thermal socks are the best I have purchased - While I live in a failry temperate place (Perth in Western Australia) it gets relatively cold for us here and I get really cold feet. I have tried a number of thermal options prior to these Alpine Stars ones, and these are by the best by far.

They work good
They're socks. They're long. They're under $20. What else do you want? I have a hard time paying much more than that for socks, but riding socks in general are pretty expensive. These are about the cheapest you will find, they go up to my knee (stop just under), and are comfortable. They are thinner than my MSR wickdry socks (which are admittedly thick). I wasn't too hot in these, and wasn't too cold. Keep them away from velcro though.

I have bought other more expensive socks and these fit just as well, are comfortable and definitely kept me warm on our trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains in December. Bought a couple for my husband as well
