Not for skiing: gave awful blisters
Reviewed in the United States on February 5, 2021
I’ve never encountered such an issue with ski socks! The way these are textured a stripe with the least padding is aligned with the ski boot tongue.
We went on a long skiing trip and I was excited to try a new pair of socks. By the end of my first day skiing I was in awful pain along the ankles, and readjusting the boots didn’t help. When I finally took off the socks, there was a line of tiny blisters exactly aligning with the not padded stripe of fabric (on the photo, and sorry for sharing it!)
I went to talk to someone in a ski shop to check if there was an issue with my boots and they told my right away that the problem was with the socks and the way they were designed. Which was my guess, too, as I never had an issue with the boots before when using usual socks.
This is ridiculous, as this product is supposed to be designed specifically for skiing! I had to use compeed blister bandaids all over my legs to be able to continue skiing on my trip. It’s been a week since we’ve returned, and my legs have not completely healed yet. I have difficulty wearing any shoes that go higher than my ankle.
If you’re trying to decide whether you should get a pair of these for your next ski trip, please, save yourself and don’t.
