Strengths:    Wash well, you don't feel them while wearing them.

Weaknesses:    Nope.

Bottom Line:   
I'm pretty fussy with all my contact points on the bike, and love the fit-and-forget feel of the Air-e-ators. They wash well, perform the job, and the service & wrapping from KrankDirtwear.com was spot on too.

Strengths:    Quality. Ventilation (Air-e-ators). Warmth (Wool-e-ators). Wool-e-ators are my favorite sock.

Weaknesses:    Dumb cartoony graphics on the few I got dirt-cheap online, but then that's my fault.

Bottom Line:   
I use both the Air-e-ators and the Wool-e-ators; I have various Performance house brand socks to compare them to. Overall they keep their fit and integrity much longer with no saggy ankles. The Wool-e-ators in particular are great socks.

Date Reviewed: March 7, 2005

Strengths:    Serious quality, durability and performance. It's like Chris King made your socks.

Weaknesses:    Air-E-Ators are in no way weak. Even the price is reasonable, considering the strengths.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing socks. I've worn my 5 pairs for a year and they all feel like new. Feet stay cool, dry and the socks repel foot odor. Let's be honest, sometimes all the socks are in the hamper and you gotta choose: skip the ride or fish out a dirty pair and rock on. With Air-E-Ators, even a worn pair still feels pretty fresh. You gotta take care of your feet. These are money well spent.
