The ASPIRE FOUR is an overwhelming favorite among cyclists and has been rising in the ranks among other sports as well. This sock is considered our standard crew length and comes with ankle support and foot compression that has yet to be fully understood by our competitors (let alone being matched). If you are serious about compression and need a sock that doesn't stop support at the ankle, this is where you should start looking. Building on the tradition of manufacturing the best socks we can possibly make in the USA, we strive to improve our products to match your athletic demands. Using the latest machinery available, the new ASPIRE line from Swiftwick is our proudest moment. We considered smaller feet, the narrow foot and athletic activities that demand compression, but less padding in the toe box. We adjusted the formula for key fibers, more than doubled the olefin content and once again, produced the best sock you will ever wear, guaranteed. We have long aspired to create this sock, so the name was obvious. For athletes, the obvious choice is Swiftwick.
