The socks you wear while participating in snow sports like skiing and snowboarding can really make or break your day on the slopes. Men’s winter socks for snowboarding and skiing have three main features in common: moisture-managing performance, warmth and cushioning. Men’s winter socks for ski and snowboarding boots are made with moisture-wicking fabrics that pull perspiration away from your skin to keep you dry. Men’s ski and snowboarding socks are made of materials like merino wool, Lycra® and nylon, combining to create a perfect balance of warmth and comforting stretch. Cushioning along the shin is especially important in men’s ski and snowboarding socks. Cushioning must strike the balance between low-bulk comfort and protection without uncomfortable bunching that can cause blisters. Sock brands like Lorpen, SmartWool and Thorlo are experts when it comes to performance and comfort.
