Ski socks don’t have to fit like combat boots to be warm and comfy.

Simply the Best
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Best socks I've ever skied with. They're comfy, fit perfect, keep me dry, and rarely do my toes feel cold. They're durable and don't stank either. Look no further.
Best Ski Socks!
I tend to get cold feet easily but these socks worked well to keep my feet warm along with the Icebreaker Skier Liner. Have used these for various skiing trips from very cold one degree weather to warmer 25 degrees and they have held up nicely both ways. The extra padding is also a plus as my shins were not as sore as when I used other socks. Always comfortable, always warm. Great ski socks.
He loves them!
Bought these for my brother and he loves these! Super warm and comfortable. They hold up really well and they don't stink up. Great socks.
The socks to have
I've put these socks through the wringer this season and they have NEVER let me down. I've used them in -17 to +5C and have been comfortable all day. I through them on the heater when I get back and they're ready for the next day...no smelly room for me. I can get a good 3-days of hard skiing in before I have to change.
Amazing Socks. Great for cold days
What more can I say.. they do exactly as they are supposed to.
They are OVER THE CALF despite what the tech specs says.. they are also left and right foot specific. I have washed them multiple times, and they seem to be holding up better than my smartwools socks. Which are suffering after about 5-6 washes. Very well designed. Recommended for any skier.
I ordered XL, I wear size 12-13 shoes. They fit perfect.
The answer for cold days
These are my go to socks for below zero degree days. I like the designated right and left sock design. It seems to contour to your foot better than a traditional ski sock design does. The shin padding is sweet and takes the edge off of boot bang. The sock length almost comes up to the knee so it helps keep your lower legs warm as well.
great socks! highly recommended
used these for 2 days while skiing in Japan's Northern Alps. temps were -17c; feet stayed warm the whole time. the padding is in all the right spots to relieve pressure and provide added support.
Great fit, warm, and hold up great!!!
Great socks!!! Pick up a pair
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just tried these socks out and loved them. Very comfortable and extremely warm. Temps were in the single digits and my feet were toasty. They fit great and have good padding and cushioning in the right places. Skied in them 3 days in a row to see how they would hold up and they did a great job, and they didnt even hold a smell from three full days of hitting the slopes. Definately recommend to pick up a pair, great socks for the price!!!
Icebreaker Skier+Mid Sock - Men's
Awesome socks, highly reccomended!!!
excellent socks - barely any odor after a week straight skiing. padding in all the right spots, warm & very breathable. being wool they do feel a bit delicate and i'm very careful packing & washing them. so far still in great shape (only 12 days skiing em), though i'm skeptical of their long term durability - so i'm buying a backup pair. 8.5US shoe and small fits perfect.
Very nice fit and insulated padding in all the right places. Good sock for skiing, and other cold weather activities, and I've been using them for everyday use in cold weather too. I'm happy with this purchase.
Fasntastic ski socks
I ordered these socks for my husband who wears a size 14 shoe. The socks arrived and fit fantastic. He has large calf muscles and the socks were not like others in the past that were so tight on his calfs that he couldn't pull them up. The padding is amazing, there is an L and R on the top of the socks so you make sure to put them on correctly for the padding to be in the correct spots. He liked the XL size so much I made sure to stock up on them for him.
Great socks! Comfortable and provides good protection on the foot and leg. These have been the best ski socks for the price. I was skiing in negative temps. with warm feet all day! For sure Recommended!
this is a comfy sock not super thin but has enough weight to keep your feet toasty warm. good padding in all the right places. sock fits true to size, order with confidence.
Warm and thin
Bought these because I have been pleased with Icebreaker products in the past. Not using them for skiing or snowboarding, but because I work outdoors in the Winter. Kept my feet just as warm as thicker wool socks I have. With their taller height I was concerned about them creeping down and bunching up by the end of the day. Never happened!
Very comfortable. Nicely warm.
Warmth and Fit
These socks are a nice compromise between a performance fit and warmth. This Skier+ line from Icebreaker has a great anatomical fit, and this midweight offering should do pretty well for warmth considering it's still not too thick. As always, this is a well made piece from Icebreaker, and I would recommend these for someone looking for midweight warmth with great fit.
