FLM Short Cordura Socks - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Maybe I ask too much
These were the first pair of socks I bought specifically for Motorcycling use. I was attracted to the moisture wicking feature and the keeping my feet cool factor. These socks do keep your feet dryer than normal socks but by no means are your feet completely dry and free of swear nor are they 'odour free' as the socks claim to do. They definitely do more than your average cotton socks but for me, not enough to justify the price tag. Maybe these are the best performing sock on the market. Maybe not, I just don't know. I will be keeping them but I will not be purchasing another pair. This being said, the quality is there, the socks feel great, very comfy on, and the reinforced parts of the socks can really be felt. In summary - Great quality and well built however FLM got very over-excited with the features and performance of this sock and they are merely a good pair of comfy socks with a mild amount of moisture wicking and odour control. Nothing special. Had there been 2 pairs for £8. I'd be a happy bunny. 6.5/10
Decent socks for the price
These seemed a more reasonable price than some of the other well known brands. They're fairly thick, and woven but definitely work at wicking moisture away. Not worn them in really hot weather but after wearing them for a day they don't feel clammy like normal socks can do. Cushioning in various places is good and because they're a bit thicker they feel really comfortable in my Daytonas. Only thing people might struggle with is that the cuff is fairly narrow so if you have big calves you'll probably find they cut in a bit.
These are my first ever pair of dedicated motorcycle socks. I just never saw the need for them before and thought normal socks did the job just as well. Now having ridden and walked in these on a warm day without getting sweaty feet I wish I had bought some before. I will be buying another pair.
