RDCwrote a review of Giordana Merino 7in Wool Socks on December 9, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
These are clearly high quality socks, but it depends on what you're looking for. I wear Quindici's almost exclusively year-round, and thought this might be similar, but a little taller. No such luck. If you're accustomed to pretty thin socks, I suppose I can see these being somewhat warmer in cooler weather, but my feet have never been colder in 50 degrees F. I'm way more comfortable in the shorter Quindici's, and for colder temps, I throw on my Nanoflex leg warmers, rather then try to keep my lower leg warm with a sock. Also, for my tastes, I think these are too tall. I don't like any kind of sock cutting into my calf, which is why all my leisure socks are medium crew-height cycling socks. Also, I wear the largest size in Quindici's because my 43's are wide, and I don't like struggling to get my socks on. A medium might be a better fit in these.
