Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
These are very good looking socks and they certainly feel well made.
For a reason I have yet to figure out, I always end up with cold toes. I initially thought this was caused by over-tightening the ratchet on my road shoes which restricted blood flow to the toes. A second ride resulted in cold toes after a hour. After 4 or 5 rides I have always ended with cold toes. I reverted back to my Castelli Quindici socks and my toes remained comfortable throughout.
The Fugu socks are rated 0 - 8 degrees Celsius. They are very similar in construction to the Castelli Quindici socks. The Fugo's are a more snug fit in comparison and I wonder if that maybe the reason my toes suffer after a while. They are holding their shape and structure after several washes which is a plus.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
These are great socks for cold weather. I have worn these alone and with the Thermic socks underneath. They do an excellent job of trapping an air layer near your foot, transferring moisture and keeping your feet warm.
They are not overly thick, but be careful about wearing multiple socks if you compress them, you will loose that air insulating layer. I have no trouble getting the fugu socks along with the Thermics in my shoes. The Thermic socks are very thin.
