Useful guidelines to assist you when buying your gear.

Buying guide

Socks are one of the critical pieces of a proper functioning setup, yet nearly always misunderstood. That thick warm sock you love for lounging around home won’t provide the same result while skiing or snowboarding.

Casual Winter Socks

For casual use in winter or in winter boots, a mid-weight sock works well. This will keep you warm without being excessive.

Ski and Snowboard Socks

Because of the necessary technical nature in the fit of ski and snowboard boots, a thin sock is critical. If you try to wear a thick sock you’re more likely to get cold due to pressure points causing reduced blood flow. Newer liners in boots are very warm, the sock is just there to keep your foot dry and comfortable. Make sure to base the size of the sock on the ski boot size rather than your shoe size (usually smaller than the shoe size) in order to avoid wrinkling.

Heated Socks

Heated socks can be a great option for those with poor circulation or who run cold. They are definitely a game changer! Newer technologies give long lasting warmth without any bulk. These things are way less hassle than your single use toe warmers. If you are considering using these in a ski boot have a chat to one of our boot fitters about other boot specific heat options that could be available for you.

The socks we sell are all designed to regulate temperature while keeping the feet dry.

Merino – the best option for a winter sock. It wicks moisture, insulates very well, and cuts down odor. Because of all this you can typically get a few wears out of a pair before they need a wash, saving you space on your next trip. For this reason we hardly stock any socks without it!

Nylon and Bamboo – used as strengtheners in most socks. Wool on its own is not always durable enough, but when mixed with other fibers you have a combination that is technical and durable.

Spandex – added into socks to give them a wrinkle free fit that hugs the foot. This is important in footwear that is technical fitting in order to keep the fit close to the foot.
