Smart Wool PhD Ski Socks

By 21st March 2009 August 27th, 2013 Uncategorized

WHEN it comes to ski and board socks, SmartWool have leapt head and shoulders above the pack in recent years. SmartWool was formed by some American ski instructors tired of so-called ‘high-tech’ materials leaving them with cold, sweaty feet. They returned to the tried-and-tested natural fibre: wool. While these socks may have been warm, they were itchy and shrank. So they worked on a process to make them soft and easy to care for and formed SmartWool. SmartWool socks stayed dry, soft and comfortable, and awards began to flow in 1995. The most versatile in SmartWool’s line is the PhD Ski Light Sock, which has enough cushioning for all-day ripping, is reinforced with Smart yarns, has been padded up with lightweight full cushioning, and includes the 4-Degree Fit System to eliminate bunching and irritation inside your shoes or boots. Rounding out the list, there’s innovation in temperature regulation, moisture management and odour control. Gold. Available from Inski ¥3,200. Tel: 0136 22 4199
