Overall, I like the socks. However, I purchased a size XL based on manufacturer's sizing chart. However, the XL is a little too large for my feet (I wear a size 11 US). If you wear anything smaller than a size 11.5 US shoe, I recommend buying a size L instead.

Having logged thousands of mile in my bicycle over many years, I have had opportunity to try many socks for many supliers. Same shoes, different socks.
These are comfortable, durable, washable, and cool. None better, in my opinion.

Over the last year I've been buying and trying various brands of lightweight breathable socks. I love these and will buy more. My only gripe is with the seller, HDO Sport. I went back to order a couple more 3 packs and you doubled your price.

The fit and material of the socks are awesome. It covers just above the ankle and it doesn't bothers at all. If 1 pair is good, the price for the 3 becomes a great deal.

My advise is buy them. I found the sizing is correct. The socks are just the right height for me. They are soft, comfortable and after a hot sweaty ride my feet are dry as are the socks. What else could you ask for. Highly highly recommended product. No I don't work for the vendor.

These socks are great for training for casual riding sessions. For the more serious rides, I prefer the Swiftwick brand socks - they are a little more expensive but retains the shape forever and great ventilation. In comparison, these Pearl Izumi socks feel a little cheap and under-performing, and they are starting to lose the shapes now after only a few months of occasional usage. Now, I automatically prefer Swiftwick when I am packing for a ride.

Pearl iZUMi, as most cyclist already know, has been in the game for a long, long time. This experience shows in the Attack socks. They have an excellent fit and are slighly taller than the original. They are not, however, as tall as the currently popular style of "park-freeride-downhill type" socks that go to the base of the calf- almost like a tube sock... I remember the original Pearl iZUMi socks I wore growing up in the '80's... now those were very short, just bearly over the ankle bone... I also welcome the black verses the old white color only- I mountain bike and do alot of trail work, so the black is much better for not showing the dirt and grime of these activities. Because they are so close fitting and stretchy I don't expect them to last much more than a season, but if they do, great, bonus. For a great fitting riding sock from a core Colorado cycling company, these are delivering- and if they last into fall, they will get the last star!

I ordered a set of Pearl iZUMi's "Attack" socks in white, size medium.

First, I was really pleased that they were available in different sizes. My feet (Euro size 41 - 42, depending on brand, if that helps) appear to fall outside of that "one size fits most" category that the majority of socks seem to occupy. Men's "one size" socks are a little too long, often (so the heel sits in an awkward spot just aft of where it should and creeps around near the insertion point of my Achilles' tendon). If I jump ship and opt for women's "one size" socks, they're generally too short, resulting in the dreaded "sock suck," wherein the heel sits an awkward spot a bit fore of where it should and the socks creep down into one's shoes. Neither option is comfortable on the bike or on foot.

I wasn't sure whether small or medium would work better, so I ordered the mediums. Fit seems quite appropriate. I rode a century in these the day after they arrived, no problem -- neither "creeping heel" nor "sock suck" occurred.

There are no loose threads on the inside to get hung up around your toes (I have bought at least three pair of athletically-oriented socks from another manufacturer with which this was a huge problem). Overall quality seems quite good. The fabric is lightly textured, presumably to increase breathability. Ankle bands are sturdy, but don't strangle your legs.

The weight of the fabric is good for spring and summer temperatures, though I'd be hesitant to wear the black ones on a really hot, sunny day. I have, however, ridden in my white ones on a blazingly-bright day with a 100F-degree heat index, and they did fine (my road shoes have excellent ventilation, which helps). By comparison, I have taken lesser socks off mid-ride in that kind of weather.

With appropriate layers (toe covers; cool- to cold-weather friendly shoes) they should also work into the fall and winter. Winter temps around here hover in the upper 30s to low 40s most of the time; for below-freezing temps, I would consider something else, or at least double up!

My one recommendation? If you plan on riding a century and it's going to rain all day, consider the black version! The pair I wore on my rainy Independence Day century finished the ride picked up a lot of schmutz from the road. No big deal, though. I will continue to use them. These are just good, basic socks; if I feel that I need to look uber-presentable on my bike for some reason, I'll order up some fancy socks.

I give these four stars out of five because some folks might like a little more built-in arch support or a cushier footbed. They work fine for me, though. They're a good value at the price, and I like them a lot.
