It’s always good to have a nice pair of socks ? particularly when the weather is at its most extreme ? just to make sure your feet are happy.

Nothing can be more welcome, then, than the Assos socks kit. Coming in its own storage bag, the kit contains six pairs of socks suited to a variety of conditions.

These range from the Superleggra sock, which can deal with the climate of a hot French summer of 29 degrees; to the Winter Plus sock, which is more in tune with current conditions and should keep your feet warm down to minus six degrees.

Used with the shoe covers ? Early Winter, Summer and Early Summer ? the socks are enough for any climate.

The kit will cost £59.99 and is more than reasonable considering the individual price for each pair.
