  • Insulation and thermal regulation to keep your feet at the ideal temperature.

The different materials to know:

  • Noble materials: merino wool, silk, cashmere, the only materials that guarantee warmth in the ski sock.
  • Petroleum-based materials: nylon, synthetics, polyester… the only materials that are breathable, quick drying and robust.
  • Cotton: a material that should not be used in our mountain sports because it retains perspiration, does not evacuate it and takes a long time to dry.

There are different types of ski socks: 

  • Ultra-thin ski socks: for skiers looking for performance, the fineness of the yarn and the mesh as well as the semi-synthetic materials provide comfortable thermal regulation in all situations.
  • Merino wool ski socks: highly sought after wool because it is very qualitative, warm and much softer than a classic wool.
  • Synthetic socks: robust and precise in order to increase ventilation and keep feet dry.
  • Heated socks: heat supply thanks to the battery.
