Comfort & Warmth
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
The sock has extra padding near the back heal & front shit were the lime green comes into play on these black colorway. Helps with shinbang and if your feet move to much in your boots, for me just keeps my feet just right.
Extra warmth throughout some of the cold windy Midwest skiing done this season! Always a fan of Dakine Products!
Soft and Warm
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I bought these as a gift for my brother. They fit him great! Super soft and warm. These socks defiantly look like they were made to last awhile also!

A highback is the rear part of the binding on a snowboard, the part that contacts the back of your leg/achilles, etc.
Socks don't go on your head
So i got to try my socks once they were posted from Dogfunk. And i have to say, they are true to their title.
I tried to put them on my hands, but something was just not right.
I won't even get started on what happened when i tried to put them on my head, let's just say; it was an unsuccessful experience that ended in me reaching for my inhaler.
Once on my feet however; they fit like a 'sock' (not a 'glove', as previous point was made in regard to that event). All toes, feet, shin and calves were covered by the product, and felt rather comfortable in the process.
There were very minimal leg hairs protruding from between the fibres of the product, which i find to be unsightly. Usually the only solution to this is to shave/wax legs. But now i don't have to do this, as the highback socks solve the problem.
Warmth was of a high level also, except this result may be slightly warped due to it being the middle of summer in Australia right now.
All in all, a quality sock at just the right height that i feel will withstand many a day of mountain abuse and washes. And will save you a fortune in leg wax, waxing strips and/or razors.
Sizing is off or correct now? Sizes listed...
Sizing is off or correct now? Sizes listed are s/m and m/l but your size chart (and dakine's) list their sizes as s/m and l/xl so would a size 11 be in the m/l category now?
great socks, good support, mid to light insulation/thickness, feet don't smell after a hard days boarding, 4 thumbs up!
