What is your favorite MB cycling sock/shoe combo?
We like so much our Original with Giro shoes.
Do you make your own socks or do you use another company to manufacture your designs?
We make our socks in our factory. Design is totally decide by our two owners Tiziano and Marco [Bandiero]. For fun collection we have a partnership with Simone Andretta, a good designer.
Why do you think cycling socks are so much fun to wear/design?
Cause today people are day by day more exigent when you talk about appearance. We try to offer them the best design with a top quality.
Why do you not offer a women’s sock different from a men’s? Oftentimes, especially for smaller footed women the design is off when worn and there may be rubbing inside a shoe from seams that are not quite right.
We offer Two sizes (36/40 and 41/46). Moreover we have our Original available in 12cm height, 3cm less compared to our standard.
When will the website be up and running to purchase? Where else can someone purchase your socks?
Our website will be up for the end of March but the e-commerce will be operating since December. Now you can buy our socks in normal shops and online (shopforcycling.com and All4cycling.com).
