Pure White Race Socks by We Can Be CC
Velo Insider Rating
Socks are socks, right? Wrong. Socks are the comfort layer between you and your shoe, and ultimately, your bike. Not all socks are made to the same quality or comfort levels, which We Can Be prove with their Pure White Race Socks.
PROS: Extremely comfortable with great ventilation, brightest of whites!
Quality and Comfort
We all know the difference between winter and summer socks, thick vs thin, but far too many of us underestimate the quality of a summer sock. Yes it needs to be thin enough to stay cool, and wick away the sweat from your toes… but they can still be comfortable too. This is where many brands fall short, providing thin socks with minimal comfort. But that’s not the case with We Can Be…
We’ve tried both their Pure White Race Socks and their WCB x PSQ Collaboration socks and comfort is one of their top features. The Race Socks are made with Coolmax yarns which are thicker than your average sock, yet highly breathable. The quality of the yarn and stitching is superb, with flat seams there’s no tight areas or rubbing against your feet. They stay in place while riding without bunching up or twisting around in your shoes.
The design should also prove to be very durable, thanks to quality yarns and a reinforced heel/toe area. Because of the quality of yarn and thickness, comfort is amazing… Your feet feel cushioned without feeling like a winter sock, and at the same time they stay dry thanks to the lightweight breathable uppers. You won’t find a more comfortable sock than the Race Sock by WCB.
The Race Socks perform extremely well in a variety of temperatures, providing superior ventilation and wicking throughout your ride. The mesh design to the upper part of the socks provides a nice cooling feeling (depending on your shoe design) allowing for the rest of the sock to provide comfort and support. We really like how much comfort and ventilation these socks provide.
Size and Fit
Size on test is a Large (EU44-47). Being a size UK10 (EU45) the socks fit very well with no issues. There’s plenty of stretch for your bunions, bent toes and knobbly ankles! The cuff height is stated to be 6 inches which fits well without sagging while riding. We honestly can’t fault the size or fit of these socks.
Value for Money
At only £12 per pair, there’s no doubt these are a worthy addition to your sock drawer!
Without a doubt these are some of the best socks we’ve worn and put other brands to shame for cost and quality! Just don’t forget to keep that lovely rear pinstripe nice and straight!
