Socks. We all get them for Christmas, and admit it, you’ve probably bought your fair share for the men in your live over the years! They are not the most imaginative of gifts, but definitely one of the easiest. This year is no exception, and I’ve been testing the Dakine Booker Socks myself to see what the fuss is about.
The Dakine Booker Socks are designed for mountain biking, so their design is based on durability and comfort under strain. They are a snug fit and have extra arch support to make sure they fit properly and have longevity, especially on long distance bike journeys. The socks are made of durable polyester yarn (97% Polyester 3% Spandex), which helps with the evaporation of moisture, whether it be from the feet, or unpredictable weather!
I tried them on all day, and they are certainly comfortable with a lot of support for not just the arch of the foot but the ankle too. I wore them under winter leather boots, so they kept me warm as well as keeping my feet fresh. The design is not offensive, but not necessarily a pattern you’d want to be seen. They’re not fashion socks, so the mix of leaf designs and pink, green and black colours are meant to be kept under sportswear, or in my case, boots.
The socks are sold in single pairs due to their technical nature presumably, but they also have a 1 year warranty – not something you usually get with socks! They would make a great present or stocking filler for anyone who likes bike riding, mountain biking or otherwise, and for keeping warm and fresh under boots.
The Dakine Booker Socks are available in 7 colours/patterns and are one size fits all.
If you are going to give socks as a Christmas gift this year then you might as well go for a quality pair and the Dakine Booker Socks are just that.
RRP: £7.80 to £12
