I first came across Col d'Lizard socks back in 2006, when I started riding all through the year, in St. Louis. I might have gotten to know them through the IceBike website. Back then I bought a pair of their Merino Wool Skiing socks and their PolarTec tights. Both the socks and the tights saved my butt on many a cold day.
Since I was so good in 2011, Santa brought me a bunch of Col d'Lizard Socks for Christmas and I was delighted that I got them.
If you are in the market for a good pair of sock, give the Col d'Lizard socks a try. I would recommend them to anyone, wholeheartedly, because they are so Darn Tough!
