“Rhnio Socks stood up to the grueling 7 stages wonderfully. You can read up on the daily blogs of the stages at We had so many mechanical problems it was stupid. Two out of the Seven days we went without mechanicals otherwise...Evan broke a rib on the second to last stage, we had 7 flats, two broken hubs, one chain and one headset. We ended up fifth but not quite what we were hoping for. Not one problem with the socks though, not one. Thank you so much once again for happy feet Rhino Socks!”

“Rhino socks are by far, feet down, the best socks I have used; whether it’s on the road, trail, or on my bike, the comfort and structure is unmatched. They truly do fit great and go the distance. What’s impressive about Rhino socks is not only do they feel terrific; they have that panache that other socks don’t, their hip! So not only are you getting excellent comfort, you’re getting the grooviest socks to ever hit the market. Thanks Rhino Socks!”

Jan Shedeger of Reno, NV – Owner of Road Riders of Reno bike shop

“Rhinosocks are one of the best footwear products I have tried in years. They are extremely comfortable, my feet are never hot or cold and they stand up to washing after washing. With this kind of personal knowledge, our store has sold more Rhinosocks than I ever thought possible. Our customers are coming back and telling us how happy they are with this product and are telling their friends too. The Rhino Socks crew are very responsive to our orders,which are shipped timely and accurately. Thanks Rhino Socks!”

“Hey there Archie,
It was great to meet you up at Brian Head. I told you I would test these comfy socks and that is exactly what I have done. I have put these things through every kind of terrain over the last two weeks and to my suprise... not one thing wrong with them still... Amazing! They are by far the most comfortable riding socks out there and I have never had socks take a beating like this. You have won me over. All we need is socks that say RHINO on them where other riders can read them... thank you again so much for the opportunity to be an ambassodor for you Archie, I will make you proud.
God Bless your socks off,
Bear Perrin"

"Hi Archie,
I am very pleased to tell you that I have taken these socks of yours through the ringer. Every possible chance of failure has been presented and they have come out with flying colors... well a little dirty\muddy but still they have held up where everyother sock has failed. I have been racing in three different cross series and wearing those socks of yours everywhere. Not one hole!! Thank you so much for making product that works.
Bear Perrin”

“My first experience wearing Rhino socks was racing the NORBHA National Mountain Bike Marathon in Brianhead Utah. After racing 54 miles I went straight to the Rhino Socks booth and told them, "Your socks are amazing, my feet never fell asleep and felt great the entire 5 hours and 49 minutes!" I told them I couldn't wait to try running in them. Last week I raced the Imogene Pass Run in Ouray Colorado and I didn't get one blister - something that did not happen in last year's race. I've told all my cycling and running buddies they need to start wearing Rhino Socks.”

“I really enjoy the amazing comfort of the rhino socks! I know it seems a bit over the top to be so excited about socks but I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to comfort on the feet. After racing my road bike at the highest level of the sport for almost 10 years I know what works and what doesn't. Rhino socks have the reinforced heel and toe box, often stress areas I end up going through in about 1-2 months of hard racing. I also appreciate the design and colors that don't fade or begin to shred. Finally the elastic around the ankle holds up longer than any other sock that I have used. Thanks for making such a superior product. Keep them coming, I'll keep wearing them!”

“Rhino socks are awesome!!! When I am mountain biking, they provide the padding I need to keep my feet peddling. They are the best sock I have ever had on my feet. They are padded in just the right places, but thin enough to keep cool. I love the arch support and the instep comfort stip pad.”
