    Lol!

    I thought maybe you were just on the "Best Of AM" bandwagon, but the link actually goes to a very deserving sock choice there. I don't know about the high tops though. Even black low quarter socks make one look pretty geeky. Just look at these yahoos.

    It's those yahoos from the Texas panhandle!

    TNC, don't you know you have to go down to Big Bend to get some good riding? (Besides, you go across the river and get the best Mexican food ever!)

    black socks may be geeky but, they don't show dirt as well as white socks.

    I think drop in season one had a short little thing on black socks, as i recall it was pretty serious, though funny.

    Them's fightin' words, pard'ner! Big Bend...Pfffft. I got a little 80 mile trail a few miles SW from my home that any AM rider would kill for. Hey, speaking of Big Bend...I notice that there might actually be something worth riding there in the not-too-distant future if everything goes right.

    Yeah, the last time I was down there I wasn't riding. My sister and dad went out, and I followed in the "support" vehicle (why it was needed is a mystery to me). But it did look like a fun ride, even if it was all double-track. You need to go down there and join the team of volunteers to build the single-track.

    BTW: I get to say anything bad about Texas I damned well want, since I am a Texan by birth (born in Ft. Worth and grew up in Arlington). I've earned my rights!

    White socks are not a cool AM look in the UK, due to their association with 80's fashion!

    Black socks are better for AM because they hide Mountain Dew stains.

    On a serious note...has anyone seen those Dr. Scholl's diabetic socks? They make them in black low quarter, and they are CoolMax and extemely wickable. They cost about $6 for two pair at the Evil Empire (WalMart). They are woven with thick fibers but they are relatively far apart. They've been amazing IMO. I work at a shop and can get any socks at cost, but I haven't found anything as good as these, regardless of price. Initially it may seem strange buying diabetic socks, but really it's just a supportive and wicking design that really works. They look like any low quarter sock when you're wearing them. Anyone else see or try them?

    I wear black socks (DeFeet air-something-or-others). I bought them b/c they were 4 bucks a a pair and the white ones looked downright goofy (even though previously I wore regular white socks all the time ) I have very little fashion sense but I'm happy when I ride none-the-less

    You kick ass, Stinky. I can't believe that you are from AZ and not TX. This thread just proves that TX kicks ass.

    I think maybe I've infected HAB with the Dew virus.

    In fact, I want to propose we just rename this entire forum the "Dew Riders' Forum".

    Hey, wrong thread. :-) This isn't the "All Mountain Bike Wear" one. And they've already decided on a AM Uniform. Though this would be a cool uniform also. More padding.

    TNC is the All Mountain Devil!

    Would you believe I actually went into W...Wal..., you know, that place, looking for diabetic socks? I loathe that store. HatehatehatehateHATE it! But I think I'm more of a sock whore then a Walmart hater, so I might had bought myself a pair of the socks, but they didn't have the black ones in the 1/4 crew, Phew, can go back to my loathing!

    They looked really...soft, almost like they'd be too soft as they'd get caught and torn on the shrubbery 'round here.

    Now, if Walmart was selling Syncros socks with the kevlar heel and toes, then I'd have to support Wal...

    What the heck?...are you running around with Monty Python looking for the Holy Grail or something? We don't have shrubbery in Texas to worry about putting a run in our hosiery. All our trails are smooth and vegetation free. In this pic that green thing in the far left is really just a rubber artificial plant to kind of spruce up the trail...LOL!

    Seriously though, those socks have held up really well. Their construction looks very different but that's what makes them work so well. On our local trail in this pic, just about every bush, plant, and tree has thorns and stickers on them. I'm wearing the armor for the vegetation...not the rocks and crashes.

    You really should have bought those high top black ones you found at Satan's house...errr, I mean WalMart. You would look very stylish and wouldn't have to wear knee/shin guards.

    Yeah, they were super comfy. Kinda old school though, back when Syncros was a cool company and made things like that.

    And they worked great if you were expecting to be shot at. Just whip out your feet and wave them around and mention how bullet proof your feet were.

    I think it would have to be one of those isolated retreat type places where you just run around in slippers all the time, no socks allowed!

    Yeah, you have no idea how close to home you hit. Around my workplace, people stop me and ask me to pull up my pant legs to see what socks I'm wearing.

    Hi my name is Cold S and I'm a sock whore

    When at the Dentist the girls noticed that my socks had beer mugs on them. now I have to wear a different pair every time. My local bike club had a picnic and a raffel, to pick from the table o' swag, and I chose the socks.





    Oh and it's not slippers it's berkinstocks.
