I'm currently using running socks in my Bont shoes, to fill every space, and be comfortable.

http://www.wigwam.com/Products/Ironman- ... 1d091bb843

I like them, but I'd like to find a real "cycling" mid-high sock (flat seams, sleek fabric for circulation) that has the same cushion sole under and around the foot.

Do you know any brand that has this type of configuration ?

Louis :)

I've been almost exclusively wearing swiftwick socks this season, lots of cuff and compression options.

I'm a fan of Sock Guy socks. They have lots of options for cycling in various materials, thicknesses, and amounts of cushion. And if you really want to go pro you can order custom socks.

Looks exactly like what I need :D Cushion, and lots of breathability on the upper with the Bont's.

I'll definitely try the cush model, in tall cuff, black (Majklnajt and Devinci will be thrilled ;))...

The "Channel air" cushion construction looks OK, but I'm not shure it would "fill" the " Bont Bathtub" like a whole cushion undersole. Not a huge fan of the road runner either (always cheered for the coyote.. :lol: ).

I checked the whole range. Not easy to choose, especially for my needs. The nicest have less cushion in the forefoot.
Also, I don't like the feeling of merino wool, they seem to have the best padding, but this material is "slippery" inside a leather Bont...not a nice feeling.

I would recommend the previously cited Defeet Ciclismo socks. The forefoot is padded and gives some cushioning there under the ball of the foot if that's what you're after. They will fill some volume in your shoe.

Try Falke - Left and Right foot specific and well cushioned in the right places

Hi, what sort of cushion you have used? Decorative Cushion? Other than this I used the runner socks and I am doing cycling on machine in my room to build my stamina. But its hard for me to sit for long time on the cycle. So I am looking for the soft cushion in small size. Possible?

Try swiftwick !!! Cycling socks imo really good. Many socks for other sports as well.
I'm sure part of line have thicker socks as well.

While all the brands mentioned are great, stay with the people who were 1st and still best defeet... The defeat factory burned down and that allowed other brands to sort of catch up...

Only in black but the best sock made period defeat wool.

Thin Wooleator
Med Woolie Boolie
Thick Blaze

I use the Woolie Boolie year round in NorCal and it's great at sucking up the little extra spaces and cushioning. However you should use a real insole for true cushioning... I have tried all the non custom insoles and think that Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Sport Replacement Insoles are the best. Yes it's crazy but they are cheap and replaceable and work great.
