Providing the minimalist coverage hot summer rides demand, the Pearl Izumi Elite Low Socks' soft and wicking blend of polyester, nylon, and spandex will have you questioning if you're really wearing socks at all. The mini-crew height is just enough to protect the ankles from rubbing, so your feet are able to enjoy Pearl Izumi's moisture-wicking fabric.

The material is a mix of polyester, nylon, and spandex, meaning that the Elite is lightweight and extremely comfortable next to the skin. At the bottom of the sock, strategically-placed cushioning reduces shock and fatigue, while at the top, mesh panels promote airflow to keep you cool.

The Pearl Izumi Elite Socks come in eight colors and sizes Medium through X-Large.

    I was excited to try these socks on, since they are a well known brand and they were a good deal.
    When I tried these socks on, I realized BOTH socks have a hole on them!! It seems like a manufacturer defect. The hole is in the same place on both socks, which seems a bit weird. I wondered if it was intentional, but no where else mentions holes in socks.
    The sock still works, but it's disappointing to buy something that is brand new and already is damaged.

    Solid Sock

    Thin, light, and sound seams. Cushion is minimal. Works.

    Depends on what you are looking for.

      These socks are thin and I always like my socks thin. We have a blizzard here so it is freezing here, but I still wear them in a good winter shoe. Expandable but a little on the less than more side, so they are firm.

      Nice but not amazing

      These are pretty nice socks. I wear them all the time. They are summer socks so they are really thin as expected. I'm not sure I can tell any difference between these and the attack sock for a few bucks less. Other than the snazzy patterns.
