Ski Socks - Get ski socks for the whole family at L9 Sports
One of the most important, yet overlooked things when it comes to a great day of skiing is your socks. The wrong sock can turn a comfy Ski Boot into a painful experience or a normal foot into a block of ice. Luckily, at L9 Sports, we carry the right ski socks for everyone. You might be surprised how much technology goes into a sock.
Ski Socks need to fit since the connection with the boot is so important in skiing. Aside from the basic shoe size fitting, most ski socks include padding where problems might occur (like the shin) while staying extra thin where you need the space (like the midfoot). Some ski socks stay thin all the way through for those skiers who crave performance and don’t have too many issues with cold feet. Be sure to read the description of each individual pair to see what they offer in terms of ergonomics and fit.
Speaking of cold feet, how do ski socks keep your feet warm AND comfortable in such a tight boot? The answer is the excellent materials used in the socks. You might think that some space-age synthetic fabric is the best, but actually the best socks are made with all natural Merino Wool. Merino Wool is soft, warm, fast drying and packs a lot of insulation into a small package. If you are used to itchy wool, this is different. If you are used to cotton, be prepared to have your mind blown. Merino Wool is simply the best. Some ski socks here at L9 are 100% Merino Wool, while others are a Merino Wool blend, but they will keep you warm either way. Be sure to check out the descriptions to see what any particular sock is made of.
