Perhaps it was the almighty Sky, one of the best cycling teams on the planet, that made high cycling socks fashionable back in the day. Even if we are purists and if we are more refined, perhaps the first and very first was Lance or why not the great Brad (Sir Bradley Wiggins), but the truth is that since then, high socks have come to stay among professionals and users.
In the early days, they were only timidly worn by amateur cyclists and only the chicest of the team dared to wear them. From there, they moved on to high boot covers for time trials, and from one season to the next, high cycling socks are a must in the look & field of any stylish cyclist.
– The UCI and high cycling socks
Although it is true that they are fashionable, and we love them, the UCI (International Cycling Union) is on the trail of the trendiest cyclists and has taken action to regulate the maximum length of cycling socks. It is no longer unusual to see race judges measuring the socks of professional cyclists.
The reason seems to lie in the aerodynamic improvement of the cyclist’s compression socks and the length of these, since according to different studies, they would improve up to 0.6 seconds per kilometre. Anything to scratch…
We manufacture our socks in Spain and design in the Principality of Asturias. We are cyclists and we only make what we are passionate about. We ship worldwide and if you have any questions please send us a whatsapp! We speak a little English.

We don’t care if we gain 0.6 seconds or not, what really matters to us is that you are comfortable in our socks and enjoy the miles wearing stylish cycling socks. True to our #Ride&Style
Specifically, the measurement states that the edge of the sock should not exceed 50% of the distance between the head of the fibula and the ball bone of the ankle. Don’t worry, neither you nor I will ever have our socks measured. We can ride with peace of mind…
– Being fashionable, that’s the point
It’s a question of style. Tall cycling socks slim the leg, give a slimmer and more sophisticated look to the rider and no matter what anyone says, they are fashionable. Gone are the ankle socks or even the invisible socks of the 90s. They are a thing of the past.
What’s hot, what’s cool and what’s stylish are high cycling socks with exclusive designs.
Far from what you may think, it is not a garment that you can only wear in summer, as in winter even with long culottes, you can wear them over the culotte itself, giving that pro look and a touch of style to your outfit.
– How to wear your cycling socks
If there’s one thing that any stylish cyclist hates, it’s loose socks that pull down and lose their fit. That’s why we’ve developed a compression fit system for the instep and ankle, ensuring that even after repeated washings, the compositions we use at Mooquer maintain their properties and fit the sock perfectly.
We have declared war on loose socks that come off after a few kilometres.
