A powerful combination.
The Hincapie Power Crew Sock owes its winning combination of comfort, moisture management, breathability, and durabilty to its high-thread-count Coolmax fabric. Coolmax's patented four channel design pulls moisture away from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable, and the fabric's nylon construction provides the durability you need to get through season-after-season of epic, all-day rides. The Power Crew Socks are available in White or Black in sizes Small through X-Large.

- Q & A
George, I am disappoint...
These socks are made here, and they honestly look a bit like DeFeet is doing them.
Let's start with the + :
They look good. Simple. Plain. Clean. I like that.
They're tall. 5 inch cuffs. I have size 46 feet, and they fit just fine.
That's about it for the pluseseses....
Now for where Hincapie fell down :
They're too damn thick. The tops/cuffs are perfect. The foot part of the sock is rather tube sock-esque. I simply cannot wear them with my road shoes.
Sure, I wear narrow Italian shoes...Diadora...cough...cough...but DAMN. One shouldn't be forced into a higher volume shoe because their socks are thick. Even loosening the straps didn't help!
Hell, even in my Nike running shoes, the socks just FEEL thick. The soles just squirm under foot.
And they don't breathe. As I'm sitting here typing this, my feet are hot. I cannot imagine trying to wear these on a 90 degree, South Carolina, July day.
OK...changed socks...much better.
If Defeet makes these, and again, I suspect they do, just order a run of Levitator Lites, and slap the "H" logo on them. Easy peasy...
I like Hincapie clothing. I know Richie. Gotta go all Grumpy Cat on this one and say...
Great looking socks
What a pair of socks!!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Great comfortable socks, very cool, fits great, great material. I'm a shoe size 10 and decided to go with the L and are really true to size.
