Socks Buying Guide

Buying the right ski or snowboard socks

Sumo Sox

Whether you own your boots or plan to hire some, great ski socks are a must have for anyone wanting to have a great day on the snow.

Although it is tempting to think if putting on an additional pair of socks will keep you warmer, this may not be true as more pressure inside your boot will increase the likelihood of your circulation being cut off – leaving you with colder feet and toes!

We recommend looking for a specifically designed ski sock that is thin, woollen or bamboo blend, seamless, with spandex or elastane for stretch and added comfort.  If your is the market for a technical sock check that it has ergonomic compression bands or at a minimum instep support with mesh ventilation.

If you are heading to the mountain for a bit of snow-play and just want your feet to be as warm as possible in your apre boots we recommend a thick wool sock.
