Share your thoughts
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
awesome socks kinda strong for how thin they are, good circulation and they have lasted two seasons now with just a little bit of ware and tear.
Good basic ski sock
- Gender: Female
Nice thin sock. Very comfortable. Good padding where you need it.
Skinny socks all rip, but these do their job
Yes, I've torn a pair of these, but the stoic synth ski sock is one of the only options on the market if you want a paper-thin ski sock to cover your foot while it is crammed into a plug boot. I don't think you can make a sock both thin and tear-proof, but I will say that ever since noticing the fragility of these socks, I've taken care to be gentle with them and haven't had any problems. They'll snag on snaps and hooks, but they don't break down from normal wear or the washer/dryer cycle.
Good wicking performance, not very strong.
Good thing they come in packs of two; I put a finger through them twice while pulling them on during the first use.
Beyond the potential tearing problem, the L/XL size seems small and the performance is good in sweaty conditions.
Awesome ski sock
I really like the thickness of this sock, and after a lot of ski days in them, they still come out of the washer like new every time.
These are amazing. The foot provides great venting on top and the shins have extra padding for amazing comfort. I rocked these for 3 days straight and my feet/ankles/shins never were sore at the end of the day. Freakin awesome.
BAD SOCK that rips
These socks are nice and thin. Actually the fit is nice on them. They are thin over the top of the foot to allow for good breathability.
But these are good for one day only. They tend to stretch out and sometimes I like to wear socks 2 times. So you have to wash these between wears.
Oh yeah and here is the big flaw. Every single pair of these have ripped when pulling up. They are so thin my fingers tear right though them.
Pretty happy with these guys on my feet. They are good for long days and they wick sweat away from hot feet. Best part is that they stay in place. I pulled them up to just below my knee and that's where they stayed through morning Pow, boots-off breaks in the lodge (mmmm, PB&Js w/beer) and afternoon hucks. Got these from SAC, warm dry feet are more than worth the moderate price.
Tip: They double as a pretty good motorcycle sock as well. The padding keeps riding boots from iritating my shins.
I purchased these socks last month, because I needed some new Ski socks. I have been using Smartwool socks for years, so i was a bit hesitant at first. These socks are awesome, and have exceeded all of my expectations. They're light weight, and very comfy. THey wick moisture better than smartwool, and are even more comfy too. THese were a great purchase., and highly recommended for skiers looking for lighter weight ski socks.
Comfortable socks, great price
These socks fit comfortably, they also wick moisture and breath very well. They aren't as thin as I expected, but still thin enough. Quality is good not great, one sock got a hole in the stitching after a few wears.
Good value for the price
Good socks - a great value for the price. Right thickness with elastic in the right places to keep the socks in place at all times. They are a little bit high going up to the knees, but I guess some folks are into that. I wear size 11 shoes and the L/XL fit me perfectly
Great socks for long days
For a light weight ski sock, this model brings it all. They have the padding where you need it, without compromising a tight buckle fit for performance, they really grip your lower leg well, so they stay where you hike'em all day long, and comfortably too. I've used these for work, and even after 14 hours, I've never felt the slightest discomfort.
Been using these this season and really happy with them. Stoic put some thought into them and they have a little bit of padding venting, and support, in the right spots.
My feet don't sweat as much in my boots with these socks, so they stay warm. Last week I was out in single digit temps all day and didn't have any problem with my feet geting cold.
They seem to be holding up good too. I would recommend them to a friend.
For the price these are a pretty good sock but I question how long they will last. I was pulling one on the other day and it ended up tearing right near the bend in my foot. They kept my feet adequately dry and comfortable during my days out and dry relatively quickly but I may end up sticking with my wool socks for the time being. They also sit really high on the leg (much higher than my boot cuff) so I end up rolling them back down a bit.
When I first bought these I was unsure of the height of these- they are very tall, like I can pull them above my knee. But, they are just as comfortable not pulled as high, and most importantly they hold well and dont slip down into boots like others (smartwool). They fit very well, and manage moisture well without saturating or becoming bunched in boots.
great socks for the price. Nice flat seams. great conturing. I am a nike size 13 and the l/xl fits perfectly. The height of the sock is also perfect for my 6'1 frame. The top of the sock comes just above the calf. Not too long like other companies when you get that large of a sock. The top of the sock above the foot is almost mesh for nice breathability. The arch support is nice and very tight for good support. The extra padding is nice under foot and in the shin. Overall a great sock for the money. Plus the appearance is pretty cool.
nice sock but it comes up over my knee, not a huge fan of that (but i do have shorter legs). i am a size 8.0 and the sm/m fit true to size other than the length. good sock if you don't mind the length being high.
Cool Colors, Run Big
Went skiing with these the other day. Performance-wise, they're great for a thin, synthetic, wicking sock with a little extra padding in key spots.
Only complaint is that they run way big (got the L/XL). I'm 6'2" and before a washing they were half way up my knee when I pulled them on. Not a dealbreaker, just unexpected.
