We like the versatility of the Giordana Trade Mid-Cuff Socks; they're a happy medium, height-wise, for on- or off- road excursions. They can also be worn under pants without exposing shin or the logo graphics when you sit down. After all, it's important to remain professional when wearing arrow-shooting-centaur-adorned cycling socks under dress trousers (it's okay, we do it too).
The Trade Mid-Cuff Socks are made predominantly of Newlife X-Dry fabric, which swiftly transports moisture away from the skin. As a feel-good bonus, Newlife yarns are made from recycled plastics with environmental sustainability in mind. The X-Dry is combined with stretchy Lycra for shape retention. Mesh on the top of the foot enhances breathability and the elastic around the arch dials in the fit. The Giordana Trade Mid-Cuff Socks come in sizes Small, Medium, and Large, and in five color options: Black/red, Black/white, White/black, White/blue, and White/red.

- Q & A
Giordana, really don't need to say much more!
Very comfortable socks for long, hot summer rides. But better than these are the FR-C socks (I have the ladies), and Gore's XENON socks,of all things! You have to try them, they're every bit as good as the FR-C socks, and more. You'll have to get them direct at this time.
Got the ladies version in some great colors, but they didn't have a black & red offering, which most of my bike wear is black & red, or purple & white.
These fit just fine; stay in place; breathe very well; and look cool!
May try the shorter version, but my past experience is that the really short cuff socks tend to end up scrunched up in your shoe...I'll wait for others to try/review them, first!
Fits Ladies, too!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Great, breezy socks. Doesn't really look like 'guy' socks, either, because they're not too high. Like that they also happen to match up with the "Laser" top, and shorts I just got (nice plus).
I also wear a U.S. size 7.5 ladies' shoe and the size small works perfectly.
Even though white is a bit cooler to wear for summer, I had a 'slight mishap' where my white ladies' G. Trade (short cuff) got stained...too bad, but still wearable (the way I see it is,anyone that has a @#!* problem with them can...) You know...buy me a new pair!!!
Great socks for hot rides
I'm a female and bought these socks in small (I"m a size 7.5) and they fit perfectly. Great sock for hot rides.
These socks are perfect and I have ordered them time and time again. They are comfortable and allow your feet to breathe while riding.
