Providing the minimalist coverage hot summer rides demand, the Pearl Izumi Elite Low Socks' soft and wicking blend of polyester, nylon, and spandex will have you questioning if you're really wearing socks at all. The mini-crew height is just enough to protect the ankles from rubbing, so your feet are able to enjoy Pearl Izumi's moisture-wicking fabric.
The material is a mix of polyester, nylon, and spandex, meaning that the Elite is lightweight and extremely comfortable next to the skin. At the bottom of the sock, strategically-placed cushioning reduces shock and fatigue, while at the top, mesh panels promote airflow to keep you cool.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Socks come in eight colors and sizes Medium through X-Large.

- Q & A
Depends on what you are looking for.
These socks are thin and I always like my socks thin. We have a blizzard here so it is freezing here, but I still wear them in a good winter shoe. Expandable but a little on the less than more side, so they are firm.
Nice but not amazing
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
These are pretty nice socks. I wear them all the time. They are summer socks so they are really thin as expected. I'm not sure I can tell any difference between these and the attack sock for a few bucks less. Other than the snazzy patterns.
