New this year, the Darn Tough Women's Over-The-Calf Function 5 Padded Cushion Ski Sock takes the company's lauded Over-The-Calf Ultra-Light sock and adds cushioning at five strategic spots to seamlessly integrate sock with ski boot. The sock is literally seamless so it sits as one smooth surface on your foot, keeping chafing and blisters away. Breathable and anti-microbial soft merino wool cushions your foot while moving sweat away. Nylon fibers improve durability and Lycra adds stretch so the sock conforms to your foot. Additional cushioning is placed at ski boot pressure points, at the Achilles and ankle, for added protection and support.
By their own admission, Darn Tough seriously geeked out when designing this sock. The goal was to create the perfect fusion between boot and sock. The result was the Function 5. They worked closely with boot fitters to dial in five precisely located comfort pads that diminish pressure points for the ultimate fit. Shin padding protects from “shin bang” while Achilles padding reduces heel lift. They even developed a pad zone that protects the top of the foot from second buckle pressure. Plus nothing feels better than the warmth Merino Wool provides when the mercury drops. If you’re a sock geek you’ll love the attention to detail we put into this sock. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
