What's more, they use ELITE transfer weaving technology and mesh ventilation to optimize wicking and cooling. Plus there's excellent compression for muscle support and a great wool look to boot.

Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite Tall Wool Socks - Closeout:
These are terrific socks for cold-weather riding. I paired them up with the Louis Garneau Neo Protect Cycling Shoe Cover on a 28-degree (F) day with winds gusting to 30mph, and my feet were warm for the entire ride (2hrs). Love these socks.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
