Steaks are for tenderizing. Shins aren't.

Your shin bone is not a belt, so don't put notches in it. The Darn Tough Merino Wool Over-The-Calf Padded Ultra-Light Ski Socks protect your precious shins from sadistic ski boots. Merino wool insulates your feet against extremes in temperature, so you stay comfier longer.

  • Padded shin protects against boot-bite during forward lean
  • High-density cushioning protects your entire foot and lower leg
  • Ribbing above the ankle prevents slippage
  • Reinforced heel and toe increase sock's lifespan
  • Elastic arch adds support
  • Ring toe construction creates an undetectable seam

Best Lightweight Ski/Snowboard Sock

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I have officially been converted from Smartwool. Darn Tough is my favorite. They last the longest, and they are the softest wool socks I've used. Serious love for this brand. Comfortable, durable, merino wool, what more could you ask for?


Happy Feet

These are my all time favorite socks! What I like best about them is that they really do fit above my calf and that not only keeps my leg warmer but also keeps the sock from scrunching down. These socks also rock because you don't have that annoying and uncomfortable seam along the toes.

These socks are super thin, so if you like the cushy feel, they are not the sock for you. But if you are looking for a sock that is comfortable, low profile, but still warm enough these are for you.


Darn tough saves the powder days!

I LOVE MY DARN TOUGH SOCKS! They are amazingly warm and they keep your feet dry if you sweat a lot like me (I know gross!). I hate stinky boots more than anyone and darntough has cured that. My boots have been so dry and I am so stoked! Also I have terrible circulation in my feet but once again darn tough saves the day. Their socks are so thin and it is so nice to be able to feel my toes while I'm skiing in 15 below weather. I wear a size 23 boot, 6 shoe and the smalls are perfect!


These socks will not dissapoint!

Love these socks!! Quality wise, probably the best stitching on the market. They have the perfect blend of materials that keep you warm and dry, yet are lightweight. If you are breaking in a new pair of skiboots, these are the socks for you! They will make the experience must more pleasant. Highly recommended!
