Why people love it
  • Gear Patrol’s pick for ski socks sure to keep your feet warm and dry on frigid days
  • Strategically constructed for comfort, durability, and protection
  • Moisture-wicking capabilities

Like with other socks specifically made for skiing or snowboarding, the padding on these may be too tight to wear with regular winter boots and other everyday shoes.


Thickness: These socks aren’t just about being thickly padded for warmth and protection, but they’re built tough so that they last.

Warming: Made from 62% Merino Wool, these socks are guaranteed to keep your feet warm on the slopes no matter how cold it is outside.

Drying: Because the rest of the sock is made with Nylon and Lycra Spandex, you’re also going to benefit from moisture-wicking properties that aim to keep your feet dry no matter what.

Comfort: Many reviewers tout not only the comfort of these socks, but they also rave about the perfect grip and stretch that allows these socks to bounce back into shape no matter what you put them through.

Padding: While the padding used in these socks does work to keep your legs safe from chafing, it may be a little too constricting over long periods of time.

Price: The unconditional lifetime guarantee makes these pricey socks worth a purchase.
