2nds. Bridgedale's precision ski socks have padding in crucial areas, Lycra® stretch around the ankle and instep, and a super-warm blend of merino wool and Isolfil® to ensure your feet are protected from blisters and cold temps.

I purchased this identical sock (in grey/black) last year, and am delighted to find it available again this year. No idea how it works as a ski sock, but it turns out to be a great Autumn/Spring cycling sock! The fit around the foot is close enough for the sock to fit inside tight, rigid road cycling shoes; the wool wicks beautifully so my foot always feels dry & comfy; and if I pull the socks all the way up my calf (so that it overlaps my thermal cycling knickers), the more heavily padded front surface of the sock acts as a sort of warm windbreak for my shins. Because of its length, it's not an orthodox cycling sock -- but it works beautifully for that purpose!

When I am not in my business casual attire for my daytime duties, I am in my Bridgedales. They last forever, or least until your son gets big enough to wear the same size and they all magically disappear into his dresser.

I have only had the chance to wear this pair of socks once and am still waiting for the cross country ski season to use them there. I think they will be good for the price but not extraordinary or something I would seek out.

This makes about twelve pairs of Bridgedale socks that are owned between my wife and me. We have purchased Bridgedale socks for hiking, skiing and snowboarding and been very satisfied with each design. I have also purchased pairs for both my kids for snowboarding.
