As the name implies, Giro's Merino Seasonal Wool Socks were constructed using a blend of smooth "seasonal weight" wool. The merino wool in the makeup helps the socks breathe, wick moisture, and resist the buildup of odors, while also providing medium-weight insulation for cool-weather conditions.
Every pair of the Merino Seasonals are made in Italy, and the 6in cuffs provide plenty of coverage for both road and mountain riding.
The Giro Merino Seasonal Wool Socks are available in sizes Small to X-Large and in the colors White Dots, Grey/red/black, Charcoal/black modern, Camo/glowing red, Black/white stripe, and Black/charcoal clean.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
I love Merino socks, and they aren't just for super cold riding, these are pretty thin and I would not hesitate to ride them on 90 degree days.
The socks are built nicely and last. Merino wool doesn't retain odors like some synthetic options either, which is a huge plus for your loved ones. These are a great height too. Buy them to boost your sock game.
I typically wear size nine which I have found in the vast majority of brands works out to be a size 43. I tried a 42.5 Giro and it was too short, but according to Giro I should be a 42 which is just not accurate. I found that the Medium is perfect for my size 9 feet.
Great tall sock

- Size Bought: Medium
This is a nice lightweight merino sock that insulates well in cool-to-warm conditions. There's no padding in the toe or heel, so they work well with snug-fitting shoes. The tall cuff supports my calves well with just the perfect amount of compression. The socks also hold up well in the wash if you use cold water and dry on low heat (or air dry on a hanger). For size reference, my feet are 42-42.5 EU/ 8.5-9 US and the mediums fit perfectly.
Why is the charcoal/white dots so tall compared to the others?
Hello Mr. Singer,
Looks like we have the wrong product image up for the Charcoal/White dots. All of these socks come in the 6in height.
I'm curious too!
