Official description

The Pikeur Contrast socks are 62% cotton, 36% polyamide and 2% elasthane.

First impressions

I was immediately hit by the large branding and they also looked quite long. I liked the fact that you were clearly instructed which was the left and which was the right.

Overview of performance

I found these particularly good to wear under long boots. They were also supportive around the foot area, but quite tight to put on. Performance-wise, they were really comfortable, warm enough without being too sweaty, and they remained in place.

Tamsin’s likes and dislikes

I do like the supportive on foot once it is on. I also never really got used to the huge Pikeur logo.

Verdict

They’re really good quality, so great value.
