The Darn Tough men's Function 5 Padded Over-the-Calf cushion ski sock is precisely engineered to provide extra cushioning in the five spots you need it most, all with the warmth of merino wool. Darn Tough will admit-Darn Tough is sock-nerds. So when Darn Tough developed the Function 5 the goal was to create the perfect fusion between boot and sock. Darn Tough 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. Darn Tough has 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. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. If you're a skier or rider with sock-nerd tendencies you'll love the attention to detail Darn Tough put into this sock. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life. Materials: 62% Merino Wool, 34% Nylon, 4% Lycra Spandex. Available Color(s): Black, Red

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.
