Looking for some comfy moto socks that won't wear holes after a few rides. Who makes durable moto boot socks?

I have a few TLD pairs that have lasted a year and are still fine. I just bought some Astars as well but haven't used them yet.

I have about 6 pairs of Answer socks that I’ve been using for the past year and a half. They are holding up.

I’ve been running Stance socks. They come normal moto length and knee brace style.

Get some top-end soccer/futbal/football socks. Nike, Adidas, etc. Try a few brands in the $10-20 range. I like Nike Stadium OTC.

Wash them separately per maker instructions to avoid pilling. Air dry.

My normal work socks (aka thin dress socks) work best for me. Hold up well, cool, and improve feel.

I have also recently tried over the knee socks. They are hot but stop chafing in knee area from gripping bike. EVS fusion from RMATV. Very good also.

Cut your toe nails. Your socks will last longer

Definitely, if your toes look like you could swoop down out of the sky and snatch lunch out of the lake, you will never find socks that last.

I have done the same for years thin dress sock. Pack of 4 at walmart 4.99 last half of the season. They would last longer but i just change them out for the hell of it.

Also the full length under armor type pants at walmart for 8.00 great for knee braces and any leg chafe. Wont ride without them anymore.

I tried going bare legged under my knee braces once.. never again. I wear an old pair of cutoff tights under my braces now.. hot as hell in the summer but beats skin rash & blisters! I tried the over the knee socks but they were too thick and made my legs even hotter. devil

Ordered some Adidas soccer socks, I'll follow up later.

The heels wear out in all of mine.

I have 3 or 4 pairs of Alpinestars socks that I've been wearing since about '98 / '99. They're the thin kind that were designed to go with the Tech 8 when that boot first came out. I don't know, 20 years... they seem pretty bulletproof!

Braaapin' aint easy.

I use regular nike crew socks and nike tights for my knee braces. Best set up ever with ventilated pants any you feel indestructible.

Use cotton shorty shocks under your moto socks and they will last longer.

My son and I both use the Alpinestars socks, I've tried other brands and like the Astars ones the best. Thin, comfy and durable.
