REV'IT! Tour Summer Socks
Good but expensive
I purchased these socks on a whim one day (had some PayPal funny money burning a hole in my virtual wallet) and I wanted to see just how much better these socks were than what I was using. As other reviewers have noted, the top of the tube sock is very tall. I am 5'7" and they go over the top of my knee cap when pulled all the way up. What I noticed is it provides a comfortable sweat barrier between your knee and the armor in your riding pants. They do not provide much padding for the bottom of the foot. Overall construction is top notch, although the material will pill if Velcro touches it. Most importantly, airflow and sweat wicking aren't any better than any decent pair of wool hiking socks (Smartwool, etc.) at half the price. Final verdict, these are good riding socks but most certainly not a must-have item.

Best riding socks ever made
Had a pair of the old "race" version but rev it doesn't seem to make them anymore. The "tour" version seems pretty darn close though. Comfortable, supportive. Great for weekend rides, trackdays. Lost count on how many trackdays I did on my last pair before I had to finally retire them.

expensive but seemingly worth it
I have worn cheaper socks and they have worked well but these Revit summer socks seem to have a more solid build and feel great. As to breathability, etc., stick your foot into a gore-tex lined summer boot and you'll sweat, no matter what, but the combo of a good boot and good socks helps to stay relatively comfortable through a long summer's ride. I'm still wearing these as of end of October 2013 with rides in the 40s and 50s and I'm comfortable.

They are exactly what I was looking for. Solved all the issues I was having with my boots and leathers without being too hot.

Tried it immediately after received it hot tropical environment.
Best for touring and perfectly paired with the Revit boots.
Anyway, a bit pricey as a SOCKS.
Revit should revise the overall price for the sake of Revit hardcore fans.

Great sock but expensive. Sidi is half the price and just as good

Nice but pricey
Had been looking for some summer weight socks and found these. Like Re'vit stuff so I thought I would try them. Like the length. So far they seem like a good purchase, however, I thought they were a bit pricey.

Long Riding Socks
As most others have mentioned, these socks go over the knees. I'm fine with them being long, but wish they went slightly below the knee, as I usually fold the top of them so that they are below my knees. Although I find the price to be a bit steep for socks... they are definitely comfortable, and keep my feet & legs dry, which is the ultimate goal.
