What’s good: Pure bliss for long, chilly hours in the saddle – a pair of long, motorcycling socks are essential for keeping lower legs and feet comfortable inside your boots. But with some brands charging up to £30 for biking-specific socks, these £2.99 jobbies are an excellent bargain. They’re knee length, comfortable, and the inclusion of Lycra means they don’t slide down. There’s padding at the sole for extra plushness, plus reinforced toes and heels. Excellent.
What’s not: As a pair of socks to wear under your bike boots, you can’t argue with them at this price.
