The Falke SK4s are not the cheapest option, but as Alf suggests, the investment is well worth it to get a comfy and high-performing pair of socks.
WHAT THEY SAY: "Neither lose power nor control when skiing: Thanks to its very light padding, this men's sports sock provides for effective protection against pressure marks with direct power transfer. Merino wool stores warmth reliably and quickly channels moisture away from the foot. Take to the slopes with comfort and confidence!"
WHAT ALF SAYS: The SK4s are by no means cheap but they are wonderfully soft and comfortable ski socks – some of the best I’ve worn for some time, in fact. They’re made from a mix of 75 per cent merino wool/25 per cent polyamide with a thin, lightweight design which nevertheless manages to provide plenty of insulation at the same time.
