Socking Stuffers: Socks To Stuff Your Christmas Stockings
when you're a kid, there's nothing exciting about getting socks as
a Christmas gift. At eight-years-old, socks are boring. You can't
play with them, you can't stack them or build a millennium falcon
out of them. All you do is slip on your feet and go. Big deal!
If you're like me, as an adult, you realize that one of the things at the top of your Christmas wish list is a fresh package of socks. Nothing quite beats the feeling of slipping on a brand new pair of socks. They glide right onto your feet, soft and supple on the inside, and don't sag or slide down to the ankles like those old worn and holey socks you keep wearing week in and out.
From everyday casual wear to cuts and designs specifically tailored for motorcycle dirt bike enthusiasts, socks have become big business, especially for a company like Stance-they've locked in deals and licensing agreements with just about everyone from professional sports leagues to movie franchises, musicians, and Harley-Davidson.
Socks make great stocking stuffers. So we put together this quick list of a few dirt bike socks that might fit snugly into the Christmas stocking of someone on your list.
For those that wear knee braces when they
ride, there can be some chaffing that occur. To help solve that
issue there are a couple options like the [mageProductLink
sku="110-724040" title=""]EVS Sports TUG Fusion
Sock[/mageProductLink], the Fly Racing Moto Knee Brace Socks, and
the Fox Racing Proforma Knee Brace Socks. All three are extra long,
fitting all the way up to the upper thigh area, and provide a
barrier between the knee brace and skin. With a lycra upper for a
thin, tight, lightweight fit, and a traditional sock material
bottom for comfort, padding, and moisture absorption, these socks
are a must for hardcore riders.
For the little ones on your list who like to
moto you have plenty of choices such as the Fri Given Youth socks
from Fox Racing or the Pro MX XOXO socks from O'Neal. These socks
have thick construction, moisture wicking materials, and the O'neal
socks also offer a ribbed arch and ankle for a secure fit.
Your feet help regulate your body temperature kind of act like a
thermostat. If they get too hot and can't breathe they can cause
the rest of your body to heat up. In cold weather they can be a
source of heat loss if not properly covered. You can fine tune your
feet for the weather conditions with specific socks. For warm
weather riding Fox offers its MX Tech socks and Coolmax Savant
Thick Socks. Both are constructed with a Coolmax fabric that helps
keep feet cool and dry. When the cold sets in there are options
like the[mageProductLink sku="1406.0201.1.3" title=""] Alpinestars
Thermal Tech Socks[/mageProductLink] and the Fly Racing's Cold
Weather Moto Socks. The Alpinestars socks feature a heat retaining
yarn to keep your toes toasty while also wicking away moisture.
If you just want a standard moto sock that will offer good padding,
a comfortable fit, and breathability your choices in sizes and
colors are plentiful with options from[mageProductLink
sku="tl0855-0902" title=""] Troy Lee Designs' GP
Socks[/mageProductLink], Stance's Moto socks, and O'neal's Pro MX
Socks, to Thor's MX Socks, and Leatte's GPX Offroad Socks.
For off the bike wear, Stance has the casual sock
game locked up. Take your pick from Star Wars, Harley-Davidson,
Christmas, Skulls, or just about anything else.
