When it comes to winter sports, finding the perfect ski socks is important. When skiing, wearing comfort is crucial in order to be able to stay on the slopes for a long time. The material composition of the ski socks plays a major role. High-quality socks are often made of merino wool or functional materials such as polyamide or elastane. There should be something for everyone in our extensive range.
The right material composition for ski socks is crucial to ensure optimal comfort and performance on the slopes. A popular choice for ski socks is our patented material mix with Merino Softtec® and synthetic materials. Merino Softtec® offers excellent sweat absorption and breathability to keep feet dry for better thermoregulation. The technical yarns ensure elasticity and a good hold. You can also get ski socks with silver thread from us, which is a natural antibacterial agent and prevents unpleasant odours. The Skiing 6.0 has, among other things, a proportion of silk, which makes the socks particularly supple on the skin.
All of our ski socks have flat seams in the toe area, so there are no wrinkles and no pressure points. In addition, they are ergonomically knitted inside out, which guarantees that the socks fit snugly at the toes and do not form creases.
Thin ski socks offer a snug fit and are ideal for warmer days or tight-fitting ski boots. Thick ski socks, on the other hand, often have more padding and insulation, making them perfect for cold days and loose-fitting shoes. For extra support and better circulation while skiing or ski touring, compression socks should be considered. Compression socks increase blood flow, reduce muscle fatigue and provide additional support for the calves and arches of the feet. They fit tighter than ordinary ski socks, which is ideal for dynamic movements such as ski touring and minimizes the risk of blisters. The right ski socks should be chosen depending on the weather conditions, personal preferences and individual needs.
Socks with merino wool are particularly suitable for skiing or snowboarding. Our Merino Softtec® material mix combines the best properties of natural and artificial fibers. If it is particularly cold, then heated socks should be used.
The right size and the right material composition are crucial. We offer different sizes for women and men and many models with different compositions are available.
It depends on the shoes, the ambient temperature and the area of application. At high temperatures and dynamic movements, thinner socks are better. If it's cold and you prefer padded socks, you should use thick socks.
The calf circumference is crucial for compression socks. To do this, measure your calf at the strongest point and with the calf circumference in cm you will find the right compression sock size at Lenz.
