Yesterday I did a 26 mile flat and windy bike ride along the waterfront in Emeryville. Perfect for trying out the Lake TX312 shoes without socks for the first time. I was very positively surprised. I couldn’t really notice a difference from riding with socks at all. Now given this was “only” a 90 min ride I am sure things could change when riding longer and also when riding in conditions with more elevation.
I followed up this ride with a short run in my Zoot Kane 3.0, also with no socks. This was an even better experience. These shoes are basically meant to be used without socks. They are suuuper comfortable.
Looking forward to some improvements in transition times this season!
