    Details

    The Swiftwick Aspire Four Socks are created by a 200-needle machine process that yields a high density, seamless knit fabric. The process allows variability in the finished knit of the socks, as different parts meet different performance requirements. For example, the cushioned footbed gives way to the thin channeled upper -- both components playing a crucial role to increase your comfort.

    When you slip into a pair of Aspire Socks, you'll immediately feel that they're tailored for your feet. The arch band offers snug support in the midfoot, and the Y-shaped heel contour assures no bunching or overstretched feeling in the back. The "four" in the name refers to the four inch cuff height. This height makes them feel great in inclement weather when a bit more coverage may keep grit and dirt from falling down into your socks as it gets thrown up from the front wheel. In addition, the taller cuff height, along with the multiple knitting patterns in the footbed and cuff, adds to the compression nature of the socks to promote blood flow in the feet and lower legs. And as you might guess, improved vascular performance means reduced fatigue and speedier recovery.

    The dense nature of the material all but guarantees durability when combined with the abrasion resistant properties of Olefin, one of the prime components of the foot of the sock. Olefin is a lightweight polypropylene fiber that Swiftwick sources from US manufacturers. Then the socks are created in Tennessee in Swiftwick's own factory, where they can oversee every step of the process to ensure tight quality control. The Olefin wicks like crazy to keep your feet dry, but removing moisture from your skin is only half the story. Olefin is also hydrophobic and will not absorb water, so the moisture transfer is complete all the way to the outside of the sock. You'll stay dry, comfortable, and blister free since the socks move with your feet and minimize (or eliminate) abrasion against your skin.

    The Swiftwick Aspire Four Socks are available in Black, Grey, and White and come in four sizes from Small to X-Large. It's worth noting that the fibers used in Swiftwick socks are colored during their creation. In comparison to socks that are dyed after knitting, this makes Swiftwick socks stronger and more durable.

    • Synthetic Olefin fiber dries quickly, breathes, wicks moisture, and resists the growth of odor-causing microbes while also remaining impervious to chemicals and perspiration
    • This durable, versatile polymer that won the Nobel Prize in 1996 produces very little waste during manufacturing, and is easily recyclable to reduce environmental impact
    • Women-specific design features a narrower foot to match your foot shape
    • Seamless prevents rubbing and blistering during long rides or runs
    • Olefin toe and heel provide long-lasting durability as well as great breathability
    • Nylon and spandex arch hugs your foot's natural shape so it doesn't move as you exercise
    • Y-Heel contour anchors the heel and moves with your foot, not with your shoe's collar
    • Lightweight top of foot encourages ample breathability and isn't bulky
    • Thicker Olefin sole provides extra breathability and a little cushioning to reduce impact
    • Compression double-layer cuff doesn't move no matter how your train
    • Ankle height with four-inch cuff prevents collar rubbing from running, cycling, or golf shoes and help deter chain-to-ankle contact
    • Item #SWF0024

    • Fit: True to size

    I love that Swiftwick makes its socks in such a wide variety of lengths--I'm not tall, so having the option to get bright, fun socks that don't have a 7in cuff is great. Plus, the mint color I got is beautiful. If I could, I'd probably try to ride in head-to-toe Celeste, but I'll settle for these for now. Fabric is soft and stretchy, and it doesn't bunch over time or take up too much space in my shoes. Stock up!

    Durable + Compression = Love

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Swiftwick socks are fantastic. Nice and snug to your leg, no sliding up and down., and durable to withstand many wash cycles. It is one of those socks that you could feasibly buy 2-3 pairs and rotate those through consistently and not see the sock break down. For those of you that wear out socks and take pride in it... Good luck wearing these ones out... Happy cruising out there!

    Swiftwick is the third pair of compression socks I have tried (the others were Nike and UA), and these are perhaps better in terms of comfort and dryness compared to the others. The fit is great, it doesn't grab on to the top of the ankle too hard, a feature that I have found to be common among some brands of compression socks. This makes them comfortable to wear for biking and hiking. The best feature is the fact that there is no seam on the toes, which prevents bunching up on long runs (i.e. no blisters).



    I have worn these on 100 mile bike rides and they stay relatively dry compared to regular socks. The socks have just a touch of cushion to them which makes them comfortable to wear. As for hiking, in my experience these are good for going shorter distances.



    NOTE - the term "FOUR" in the product title refers to the length - Swiftwick makes socks from Zero (ankle socks) to I think Twelve (knee high). I saw reviews for other Swiftwick socks where folks complained that they didn't receive four pairs. Thought I'd point this out - you're buying one pair..

    The best cycling sock period.

    • Fit: True to size

    As a cycling sock connoisseur- and frequent purchaser because of that darn washing machine that seems to eat them, I have tried many a sock. None compare to these. Breathable, Comfortable, Wicking, and Compressing. Brilliant socks! And available in a wide variety of colors.

    The best cycling sock period.

    Great socks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    These socks are perfect for cycling. Nice compression around the ankle and no bunching in the shoe. They seem to have the perfect amount of cushion for no hot spots. I have not put them through a serious test yet. But, on a 65 mile ride, my feet were very happy. These are easily the best socks I have tried so far. [ I have tried many.] Sizing was good for me (9=M) and after a few washes the fit is still good. I dry them on a cool setting to preserve the elastic.

    Long-Lasting Socks

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Just received my third pair of the Swiftwick Aspire Four bike socks. Too many brands end up sloppy and floppy after a handful of washing, the Swiftwick socks are very durable. The fit is also great, they are easy to slip on and have compression feel to them. I have worn them on many multiple hour rides and have never experienced comfort or hotspot issues. I also like the color selection.

    • Fit: True to size

    Socks are important, but often overlooked. These do a nice job wicking away sweat and keeping the dogs comfortable. They also come in sweet neon colors. Machine washing is easy and they come clean every time, even after muddy rides. Fit is great, true to size.

    Good socks, no seams, but shrink

      Love these socks, most comfortable socks I own. But they seemed to shrink significantly. When I first bought them, these fit snug. Now they are really really tight. I bought a Large (size 44 shoes), but may have to size up..
