You can never have too many socks.
Cycling can be a battle, and like any soldier in the bush will tell you, you need to take care of your feet. Outside of an SPD combat boot, the Capo Active 12 Compression Socks are your best ticket to sustained comfort in the field.

I wasn't sure if I would like a compression sock for riding. It was very comfortable and actually made my shoes fit better.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: large
I've worn these socks for several months now and they are comfortable and the compression feature works well. Durability is okay/good. Be careful putting on the sock, you might pull the stitching out near the ankle. Overall, a very good sock.

The socks are a very comfortable and compressive final touch to any high end kit. Reasonably thin without sacrificing durability, and a cozy compressive fit keep the blood flowing to your feet and ankles on any ride. These are my go to socks for any ride over 3 hours, as with other socks I struggle with sore feet and feet falling asleep. Capo compression socks have absolutely solved this problem for me.
I wear a size 9.5 and found the S/M to fit best. Have worn other Capo socks in M/L but found that size to run a bit too large.
Comfy socks, but shoulda made them taller!
These socks are extremely comfortable and the material is top notch, but my only complaints are:
- the size range is too wide spread. I wear a size 12 shoe and ordered the L/XL. However, the heel shaped part of the sock comes up on the back of my heel and not the bottom. I foresee this as an area that will wear prematurely after many rides.
- These socks would look even more boss if they were several inches longer on the calf.
Regardless, they look great with my black and white Capo Modena kit.
