Girl gangs unite.
If you've ever found yourself stopped on the side of the road in the middle of a longer-than-necessary ride, giggling uncontrollably, trying like hell to swallow some food while the girl next to you just pulled a secret flask out of her jersey pocket, you probably know what Bande De Filles and Machines For Freedom are about. Bonus points if a crew of all-too-serious roadies flies by your pitstop, with a disdainful look. Bonus-bonus points if you pass them up again once back on the road, still smiling.
That amazing, giggly, fast as hell stoke that takes over when women come together on two wheels: that's what we're after. The Athletic and Machines teamed up and bottled that feeling. This limited release features socks from The Athletic, inspired by our Summerweight Palms Prints. The pair features a mismatched style, and they come in two heights!
- Made in Italy. Designed in Portland.
- Mismatched pair.
- 80% Polyamide, 20% Lycra.
- Classic 6" cuff height.
I bought a 3 inch pair cause I thought they'd make me feel like a badass pro on a bike...they do! Every time I put them on, I take myself and my ride more seriously. Plus the knit keeps my feet cool on hot days. Can't beat those feelings, especially for $10!
Bought 2 pair so I would have sets to match my tri kits, but for training, I wear them mismatched because why not! They kept my feet cool and comfortable on my 15 mile ride.
I bought the 3 inch for a change of pace and absolutely love them!
I love the two color socks, makes my bike kit look super cool and fun. Also keeps my feet cool on hot days. I bought the longer cuff height, so you can pull the socks up and down during the ride on a sunny day to avoid a stark tan line on your legs/ankle. You're welcome ;)
LOVE these socks. They make me feel like the cool, breezy chick I want to be in the bike, even when I’m huffing and puffing up hills like a red-faced buffoon. All I have to do is glance down at this puppies and my brain gets a fresh breath of sea air.
Superbe qualité !
