Endura BaaBaa Merino Socks

One of the best buys in cycle-specific Merino Wool Socks, Endura BaaBaas are significantly thinner than wool socks of the Smart hiking variety. This makes BaaBaas all the better for slipping into narrow cycling shoes or for lining Sealskinz or for wearing all year round.

  • 93% Merino - this is one of the most wool-rich socks on the market.
  • 3% Lycra content enhances the sock's no-bunching stretch and recovery properties.
  • 4% nylon content for longevity.
  • Anatomic cycle-specific fit.
  • Silky feel.
  • Itch-free comfort.
  • Endura BaaBaa Merino Socks are naturally odour resistant, thanks to of merino wool's natural lanolin content (famed for its antibacterial properties) and its propensity to wick vapour (sweat) before it condenses onto the garment.
  • Stretch arch support.
  • Durable heel and toe sections.
  • High warmth to weight ratio even when wet.
  • Seamless construction.
  • Easycare machine wash.
  • Once you've tried them you'll want a second pair, hence the twin-pack format.

Review

'I can appreciate that merino wool does not necessarily have the hardwearing features beholden to polyester and kevlar reinforcing, but it does cosy the toes in a manner with which no other material can compete. In a similar manner that you know when you've been tango'd, you will always be aware when those feet are enclosed in soft, comforting merino wool. In deference to the less than aggressive properties of merino, the endura socks are reinforced at toe and heel, and with a curious ribbed section on the bend where the leg meets the foot. somewhat visually reminiscent of those rubbery bits on bendy buses.

To help provide the comfort that pervaded both feet, the Baabaa merinos are seamless, and, as in the case of all merino products, from whichever manufacturer, they take a long time to reach malodorous proportions and tend to retain their warmth even when soaking wet. Thankfully, I only caught the tail end of some horizontal rain today, so there was no need to put that part to the test.'
