Cosy socks for winter riding cunningly knitted with a toasty merino wool inner and hard-wearing nylon outer. Slightly thicker than the Foot Soldiers with additional cushioning around your ankles. Mud and chain oil blends in with the laundry-friendly black cuffs.

  • ▹ Merino-Nylon

    Toasty Merino wool knitted sock with nylon plated to the outside for durability. Blended with elastic for stretch.
    • Composition: 42% merino; 24% elastic; 19% lycra; 15% nylon.

    ▹ More than Kiwi Made

    Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. Manufacturing locally works for us. We operate a quick-response system - holding minimal stock of any one item, but churning out a few more quick-smart when the pile gets low. The upshot is that we are seldom caught with our shelves empty, so orders get despatched the same day you place them.

    • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
      • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
      • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
      • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
      • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
    • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like Ecover, Ecostore, Earthwise or Aware.
    • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
    • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish. 

    • Wash colours separately.

Great product, brilliant service

As usual Ground Effect delivers a great product, and next day delivery even though we live in Auckland. NZ service as it used to be. Well done Ground Effect, keep up the great work.

Zig zags comfy and absorbent

Nicely made and fit well and deliver as advertised. Seem well made and have extra padding underneath from toes and heals, which means likely to reduce wear where it happens while allowing more breathability on top. Not the cheapest socks around, but well made but I suspect are likely to last a lot longer than most. And they look good too.

Comfy and the perfect height ankle bit

Lovely and comfy and thick. In fact so good that although I purchased these for my husband he's never actually got to wear them because they're now mine!
