Cycling tube socks…genius or madness? http://t.co/CgQBZpvepZ

Of course it’s genius, Bill. That you’d open this beautiful product to open debate and possibly even anti-retro-lumped-in-with-hipster-shit scorn is reprehensible. This is the ultimate mashup: ‘Merican sock genius executed in the modern era dripping with Frenchnicity. Who could’ve even possibly conceived the day we’d be able to use the term, “Je ne sais quoi…” when discussing tube socks?!
The Café du Cycliste Striped Socks – High Cuff ($25USD) are in stock and available on CDC’s website. Warmer weather’s coming for the northern hemsisphere—be ready. Avec chaussettes.
