    I remember when most cycling socks were short in height
    Now most of them are really tall. When did all of this change?

    I think it began during Lance's TdF "reign". More sock height = more advertising space.

    It's gotta be one of the dumbest ideas ever.

    Are you sure you are not suffering from SFS (Shrinking Fibula Syndrome)?

    Ask your physician about Fibulox.

    Going to be using 'reply to a thread after 4 years' rule here. I totally have the answer tho... (snicker) It's sooo obvious but again - 4 year necro-thread dredge first.

    Yeah, during the Lance comeback, when compression socks were all the rage. I've never been a triathlete, no-show type of sock wearer, but I still try to keep my cuffs under 4". A little longer for cold-weather wool socks, but otherwise still relatively moderate.

    I like them long. I absolutely hate the ankle/no show socks.
