La Vie Claire socks celebrate another of the all time great cycling jerseys of the 1980s. At the 1986 tour the La Vie Claire team included winner Greg LeMond, runner-up Bernard Hinault, Andy Hampsten, Steve Bauer, Jean-François Bernard and Niki Rüttimann, winning six stages, every jersey except the points and had four riders in the top ten.
There ws unbelievable competition, especially between Hinault and the winner LeMond who battled for the maillot jaune. What the riders did agree on wa the beauty of the shirt they wore, “I’ve always loved that jersey,” Bernard Hinault says. “It’s exceptional.”
Each pack of La Vie Claire Socks comes with one pair of anklet socks, for summer, and one longer half hose pair for wearing with jeans or trousers in the evening, or in the pub watching Le Tour!
