Slim down, warm up.

The Darn Tough Merino Wool Over-The-Calf Ultra-Light Ski Sock has a low-bulk race-ready fit, but doesn't balk at brrrr-inducing temps. Merino wool regulates your temperature over a wide range of conditions, breathing well in warm weather and insulating in cold.

Darn. Tough. Merino. Great socks that really are darn tough and they do not sacrifice the comfort either. They come with a lifetime warranty that the will back up


    Thin- just the way you want for cold ski days.

    Great sock

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I wear a 9 and ordered a medium. They fit fine. I intend to use them when we go to Banff , but for now I am just hiking in Gatlinburg and they are great. They keep my feet warm and do not bunch. Perfect for my activities.

    Any suggestions: I wear shoe size 7 or 7 1/2 so what size socks should I go with, small or medium? Thanks!

    Hey dan105792076,

    Sounds like you're between sizes. Personally, I would recommend going with medium.

    I like my ski boots to fit snug, so these light weight socks are perfect. They never bulk up in the boot, even when I go ski touring (my feet are thinking me!). Despite the lightweight, they are pretty warm, even in sub-zero temps. AND they're made in Vermont!

    AND, it's made in Vermont :)

    Favorite Ski Socks!

    I love these socks. I have one of each color because I wear them so much. They are not super thick but just right for skiing. Darn tough socks are darn tough! They are made to last. Even after wearing them everyday last winter, they still look and feel new! I would defiantly recommend these socks to people who like a ski sock that is not too padded and bulky. They are an improvement to the silk liners I used to wear racing.

    Great (and cute) socks!

    My boyfriend who works for the forest service, hammers all of his stuff into oblivion, and he only wears Darn Tough socks because they last the longest of any sock out there. I just got these socks this week and they are super comfy! The fit is awesome and they don't move around or bunch up. Great sock, highly recommended!
