Riding Socks

A simple, non-gendered, hi-vis on and off bike accessory. The first time tBab has worked with an non Aussie factory, read more on the tBab website - https://tobarwynandback.com/collections/all/products/riding-socks.  

  

Fabric / 

34% Coolplus, 32% Nylon, 31% Protimo, 3% Lycra


Fit / 

size US 8.5 (one size only) 


Characteristics / 

Reflective detail on heels, arch support, anti-microbial, moisture-wicking, extra toe + heel reinforcement. 

 

Care / 

Please care for these like you would any special garment. Socks can be cold washed in a machine with like colours. Do NOT dry in a dryer, only line dry. Do NOT use stain remover near the reflective - this part of the sock is precious - and strong stain removers can deteriorate glues used in the reflective vinyl. 


And don't walk in mud like I did if you want them to stay lovely.


Packaging / 

These socks do NOT come with packaging. tBab requested NO plastic from the factory - typically products each are wrapped individually with plastic to protect them during transport/handling. This means you get them naked, no plastic, and please note all care instructions are noted here. 


More about reflective details /

The fabric of the socks is stretchy - as socks should be. The reflective vinyl pressed onto the socks has some stretch but is made from tiny glass beads and layers of vinyl and glue to seal these (in laymans terms). So if you pull at the socks near the reflective you might notice more wear and tear or even some vinyl coming away. Just be careful. If you find the vinyl coming off or feel the socks are faulty - reach out! Each sock is pressed individually, and this is my first experience producing socks with reflective - so please have a chat to me about your thoughts!


Most designs with reflective vinyl are stripes (like my original design, which I hated) because this tends to mean the reflective is not under stress against the grain of the sock stretch. I did this for the MOST possible visibility, and for fashun, so this might mean over time you'll notice little stretch marks in the reflective. As always, reach out if you have any concerns.


Finally - these socks are designed for cars to catch the reflective at the back of your ankle - so make sure the reflective press is right at the back and your pants are rolled up for max visibility <3 Ride safe.
