Don't neglect how important a properly fitting pair of socks will be for your riding comfort. The Louis Garneau Conti Socks have been designed to work with the Louis Garneau shoes so that your feet stay dry and comfortable whether you like easy rides at the park, or epic rides in the mountains. Designed to keep you cool on the hot days, Coolmax has a majority share in the Conti socks construction. Making up 51% of the material used, the socks then add a bit of polyester, nylon and Lycra to keep the fabric malleable and durable. The materials work together to enhance the moisture management, which goes hand in hand with the breathability of the sock. The mesh knit construction on the top of the foot is part of the key to this airiness. And if you happen to wear Louis Garneau shoes, you'll notice the shoe vents are aligned with the sock mesh to make the most of the ventilation possibilities. They have also focused on making the cuff extremely stretchable, so you are not dealing with numb toes due to an overly tight sock cuff. A special elastic band around the arch provides excellent support and ensures a properly snug fit. The reinforced heels and toes will not bunch up in the shoe, and will offer a durability not often found in tech socks. The Louis Garneau Conti Socks have a six inch or fourteen centimeter cuff. You're tootsies will appreciate the extra care you've taken to keep them comfortable once you start wearing the Conti Socks.
