Just like running, your feet are engaged in every motion when biking which means your feet are going to perspire. If it is warm outside, your feet are going to perspire a lot. So what does that mean for a biker? According to REI, your feet can produce up to a cup of perspiration when pedaling to the max - gross!
So what is a biker to do? The simple answer is to find a non-cotton sock made with sweat-wicking fibers such as CoolMax which is designed to eliminate excess moisture. With the moisture issue under control and cool, you are also minimizing friction which reduces the chances for uncomfortable blisters.
The team at Injinji set out to design a sock for all bikers, cyclists and triathletes with the goal of providing superior moisture management while preventing blisters every time in the saddle. Comfortable without the bulk, the Injinji Bike Sock separates each toe with a thin, moisture wicking, breathable fiber with increased compression and additional anti-friction ribbing around the mid foot. The knit dual welt band around the ankle prevents debris from entering the sock while keeping it snug around the foot with a comfortable, natural fit inside the shoe.
So what are you waiting for, grab a pair of Injinji's new bike socks in black, blue and purple in both micro ($14) and mini-crew lengths ($14), and tell us what you think! Tweet a picture to @injinji of you wearing #biketoesocks.
