Defective product, bad customer support.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

After purchasing this sock, The first time I used them, the right sock wasn't waterproof and my toes soaked through. I contacted Gore-Tex about their guarantee, and they just responded to my long winded report by saying it was outside of the scope of their It keeps you dry warranty, and forwarded me to Gore Bike wear. I called Gore Bike wear, and they said they would send me an email to get me started on a replacement, and they never did. I left them a message on their customer service portal about it, and they still have not responded.

Definite Quality control and customer service issues. Gore-Tex doesn't seem to be living up to the hype.

Unanswered Question

Since sizes run small, will 11.0-12.0 size work with 11.5 foot size?

Works well for winter rides.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These work well for winter rides. Keep my feet dry and not too bulky to fit inside my cycling shoes. I feel like my feet still get cold on dry rides in the 30s and low 40s, though.

A Strong Layering Approach

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wear these with thin, wool socks beneath. No issues with wicking, or too much sweat, etc. They are the most fortified layer you could wear inside a normal road shoe. I found them to run a little small with respect to foot length, and slightly large in the ankles. The material is not flexible like a normal sock, so they'd have to provide room for your foot to fit into. Warm, thin, windproof - allows you to keep riding in the winter. Four stars only, as durability has not been tested yet.

Works Well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

The sizing on these is a little tricky, since they don't stretch. This also makes them difficult to get on, so size up if you're not sure. otherwise, you might not be able to pull them over your heel and ankle.



Assuming you size it right, these work great. My feet stay warm and dry on winter cycling rides down to the 30's, and the wool socks I wear underneath stay dry because they're plenty breathable. A great addition to my cycling shoe and my hiking boots.
