Your feet do a lot of work while your on a bike, so a good pair of cycling socks will help make the experience much more enjoyable. Cycling socks are designed to be breathable. By nature, cycling shoes allow much less airflow than running shoes, so socks with breathability and moisture wicking fabris will help keep the feet cool and dry. The best cycling socks are also structured to support the foot where it requires support, and offer breathing and flexibility where it does not.
Aesthetically, socks height is a topic of endless conjecture amoingst cyclists (namely road cyclists). Cycling purists maintain that ankle socks are unacceptable on a bike, and that socks must extend above the ankles. Short socks will generally extend to cover the ankle joint, while 'tall socks' reach to just below the calf. In a more practical sense, having socks that cover the ankle joint do offer some additional protection from knocks on the crank or pedals in that sensitive area.
