It is now common folk law that socks in cycling are game changers in the how you look stakes… it isn’t just about the knicks and jersey anymore; you have to bring strong sock game…

4shaw was a pioneer in the Australian cycling sock scene and several years on they are still bring out fresh and great looking socks. We could comfortably say they started a trend with colours and patterns not usually seen and today they still are on the forefront of design and using some of the best materials for performance going around.
4Shaw has sent La Velocita some of their newest designs, the Hoops 2.0, Dog 2.0 and Pintar Black. All 6 inch socks they are just about the perfect length. The quality is awesome and style.... well yes they have it. You can't go wrong with a pair of 4Shaw socks and you'll find that they will work with most of your existing kit.
We at La Velocita love the socks Dion Shaw (founder) and his crew are designing and making for Australian cyclists and those others around the world, searching for a pair of socks to make their kit that much cooler on the road or dirt when on a bike. We’re also partial to wearing them casually too with a pair of shorts and sneakers or even under pants with shoes just to give the outfit a bit of “kick”.
