Starry Night Over-The-Calf Padded Cushion Sock

The Darn Tough Women's Starry Night Over-The-Calf Padded Cushion Socks offer extra cushioning in the shin to alleviate shin bite from ski and snowboard boots. They also have cushioning at the bottom of the foot for all-day comfort. Soft merino wool provides ample warmth without the bulk, and it's woven with nylon and Lycra for durability and stretch. And since Merino wool has natural odor-resistant properties, you can lounge around in these socks after skiing without being overwhelmed by foot funk.

Nice fit and color

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Nice looking sock, but not as warm as I expected.

She loves these darn things

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

Got these socks for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I know, socks, how lame. But no! She keeps telling me how comfy they are to wear around the house and doesn't feel the need to have to throw on a much thicker sock when booting up to go out in the cold. On top of that, she loves the shin cushion. It's not a ton of cushion, but just enough to pad the shin a bit from high boots or ski boots.

Starry Eyed for Starry Night

These socks are really comfortable and they offer just the right amount of cushioning. They also kept my feet nice and warm (my toes usually get really cold). Aside from doing their job well, they're really cute - who doesn't love fun socks?!
