FOHER Co run and cycling socks are 100% Australian made. FOHER Co socks are designed to keep your feet happy, fresh and dry for hours on the road whether you are running or riding. Featuring our open weave Suck-It-Up mesh upper and a compressive mid-foot band, treat your feet to the most smoochy yet lightweight performance bike and run socks on the triathlon market.
A perfect weight, FOHER Co socks provide comfort through improved contact with your cycling shoe, and can play a part in ensuring your pedal stroke is as efficient as possible, saving you precious energy by providing greater tactile feedback and improving your power transfer as a result. The form-hugging and close fit can also assist in reducing blistering and nerve pain commonly known as 'hot-spots'.
FOHER Co socks promote efficient temperature regulation. The moisture wicking effect of our sock fabrics works by directing the sweat away from the sole of your foot to the shoe, leading to wicking which has a cooling effect on hot feet
And of course, we all know that length matters when it comes to sock height, and what is actually legal. FOHER Co socks have a 5.5" double compression cuff, perfectly legal in both cycling and running circles. Sitting at mid-crew length FOHER Co socks provide a fantastic amount of foot and ankle support without feeling too high or too short, and also aid in ankle protection in the event of a crash.
Grab your tape measure, make sure it is held flat, not twisted and always make sure that it is held firmly, not cutting in or squashing the area you are measuring. Please take the measurements below and compare them to the size chart to find the size that is right for you.
Taking your measurements whilst naked will give you your exact measurements, but if you intend wearing a garment (like a sports bra under your trikit), then take your measurements with those garments on.
CHEST/BUST – Place tape measure around the fullest and widest part of your bust (usually the part with the nipples!) Be careful not to let the tape measure slip down at the back, or squash you.
WAIST – Place tape measure between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bones (the easiest way to find your waist is to stand in front of front of a mirror and suck your tummy in hard - you should see it!). It's also usually the narrowest part of your natural waistline.
HIP – Place the measuring tape around the fullest, widest part, usually over your bottom or at the top of your thighs between your hips and thighs.
HEIGHT – In bare feet, stand against a wall and mark the point perpendicular to the top of your head. Measure up to this point from the floor.
These measurements do not include ease, which is the amount of extra space allowed in a garment for comfort and movement. The amount of ease added can greatly differ depending on the fit of the garment.
