Good ski socks will keep the foot dry and warm
A good ski sock will have good wicking properties keeping the foot dry and warm. Merino wool is great in ski socks at regulating body temperature, moving moisture away from the foot and they also have a natural resistance to foot odour.
Ski socks are also designed to come up to the knee. If you try and wear a short sock in a ski boot, the top of the sock tends to create a pressure point on the shin and can lead to shin pain. We also recommend you avoid ribbed socks which can also create pressure points on the shin.
