I've had two pair of fox moto socks (ones that go all the way up your thigh) and they are crap, wear out way to quick.
Question is, does anyone have a brand they swear by, or are they all the same and last about three months before the heel blows out and they disintegrate.

I like the o'neal ones.

a little longer than the fox/shift ones and don't stretch out. Being longer the elastic on my knee pads don't cut into my leg like it does with the fox ones.

I don't race MX so keep that in mind, however we do ride off-road quite aggressively. But I started buying tall soccer socks a few years ago. Cheaper and work pretty well actually for how I ride.

I use FoxRiver, I have no idea if that's the same as the fox brand or not, but they have lasted two seasons of off roading and some motocross as well. No holes and no sign of wear.

I wear whichever ones I pull out of my sock drawer when I get dressed in the morning.I think they have cotton in them and maybe polyester or something like that.They appear to work fine but smell a little funny post race. :<img src=" title="Roll Eyes" class="smiley">

I'd rather a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

You have a sock drawer full of thigh high moto socks that you pull on every day ? That's just a little disturbing :-*

I already do. ;D I'd mention my riding thong as well but don't want all the Aussies trying to undress me with their eyes.  :'(  :D

I don't wear socks when I ride. I find it's much more comfortable.
