Do these Smartwool PhD Bryan Iguchi Slopestyle socks add that extra comfort in your boot? Our reviewer finds out:
These neat-looking socks feature designs from Smartwool athlete and professional snowboarder Bryan Iguchi, with his backcountry adventures providing the inspiration. Of course, very few people are ever going to see those designs on the slopes unless you decide to start skiing in shorts, but they look good if you’re hanging around your ski chalet of an evening.
The over-the-calf fit of the PhD is very snug, it may be too much so if you have especially solid calves, whilst the foot of the sock is well-cushioned and very comfy. The socks are made up of 56 per cent merino wool, 42 per cent nylon and 2 per cent elastane. They also feature body-mapped fresh zones for extra comfort, to help dispel heat and moisture build-up. The socks also come with a three-year guarantee.
