Safety Nero Socks by MB Wear
Velo Insider Rating
Socks that look superb and keep you safe on the road… that’ll be the ‘Safety Nero’ socks by MB Wear. These high quality socks look great out on the road and provide an excellent level of comfort as well as quality.
PROS: Well made with a great fit, very comfortable sole padding, reflective strips look very smart.
CONS: None that we found.
Quality and Comfort
MB Wear know how to make great socks with superb quality and great attention to detail. The Safety Nero socks are another fantastic quality sock which just go to show how much design can be put into something as simple as a sock. As you can see from the photographs there’s many different features with an anti-twist band, cuff band and a very well padded sole for your toes.
We are really impressed with the cushion section which provides excellent comfort when putting down the power through your feet. The socks stay in place while riding without sagging or bunching up in your shoes and they don’t try and twist around in your shoes when your feet start to get hot. Overall they are a very comfortable cycling sock with a very nice pattern to the fabric.
The Safety Nero socks provide a good level of ventilation to your feet and stay relatively dry throughout a ride. There’s not a lot of information available as to the yarns or design of the socks, but from what we’ve tried, these socks are a great all-round performer which would be well suited to cycling and running.
The reflective strips work very well when headlights reflect off them, keeping you a little more visible than normal. Ideal for this time of year as the dark nights slowly approach!
Size and Fit
Size on review is a L-XL (41-45 EU) and fit my size UK10 feet very well without being too long in the foot. You can pull then up tight and the heel area sits perfectly in place. The cuff length is also just right without being too high or low. They look great and fit extremely well for your average foot shape. Just make sure you align those reflective strips perfectly straight or they’re going to look a bit wobbly on your calves!
Value for Money
At €20 (approx £17.80) they are a little higher in price compared with other brands available, €17 is about average. If you’re in the UK then value is obviously going to change due to exchange rates. But if you like their designs, which let’s face it look superb!, then there is no doubt you get a great sock for your money.
MB Wear have an extensive range of designs on offer to suit anyone and everyone. The Safety Nero socks are a great sock which make safety out on the road look far more cool than others.
