Oxford Oxsocks, £14.99
Miles covered/time: 3000 /three months
What’s good: These socks are my choice as favourite kit of the year. Extremely comfortable and durable with natural fibres and moisture resistant materials, making them ideal for extended use and all day riding.
They come in a twin pack, which makes the 15 quid asking pack slightly easier to accept. They are also knee-high, so they’ve kept me nice and toasty during the gruelling winter that thankfully appears to be over.
What’s not: If I was trying hard to find fault, they’re probably a bit pricy.
