Adam Üwrote a review of Dissent Ski GFX Compression Hybrid Protect Sock on January 30, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I got these socks as a gift and have been using them for a few years now.
Best. Socks. Ever.
I've got Intuition liners and custom footbeds in my boots but before I started using these socks I would end up with foot cramps in one or both feet for a while every day. Never all day, and never for more than a half hour or so, but it was super annoying to have to ski a run with my boots unbuckled or tour in pain because my foot had cramped up. Cramps were something I just dealt with.
I've probably got 180 days in these socks and since I started using them I can count the foot cramps I've had on one finger.
It's like the jump from skinny skis to sidecut skis, or sidecut skis to fat skis, or fat skis to fat skis with rocker. I was blown away. I won't ski without them.
I've since grabbed a few more pairs of different versions. Early season when my feet are all blown out from summer footwear and/or when my boots are freshly molded and extra tight I use the ski pro tours. Later in the season when my boots pack out a bit I'll graduate to the GFX which are slightly thicker.
I have a size 9 foot, 26.0 boot and can use either M or L. I've started getting L just because my gf can fit in the M and I don't want to share. Haha!!!
The only minor gripes I have are that the SPT socks are kind of a struggle to put on right out of the wash (they seem to be extra compress-y after washing) and the GFX pick up every dog hair in the house. But I will happily deal with that to not have pain, cramps, or other foot-related drama while I ski!
