Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Darn Tough Padded Cushion Ski/Ride women's socks are for those who prefer padding at the shins and along the entire length of the feet. Darn Tough uses a custom-count, shrink-treated merino wool blend that enhances the comfort and durability that outdoor enthusiasts have come to expect. Merino wool wicks away moisture and breathes to regulate temperature for outstanding comfort in a variety of conditions; it also controls odors naturally. High stitch count and Lycra(R) spandex ensures a secure foot-hugging fit; seamless toes reduce hot spots and blisters. Elastic support around the arches. Darn Tough recommends that you machine wash socks inside out in warm water on gentle cycle and tumble dry on low. *Discount will be applied when you check out.

The Darn Tough Women's Over-The-Calf Edelweiss Padded Cushion Sock lets you express your feminine style while getting all the fantastic functionality of a technical ski sock. Soft, shrink-treated merino wool is breathable and antimicrobial so your foot stays comfortable while you ski and your feet air out quickly without stink after pulling your boots off for the day. Nylon fibers improve durability and Lycra adds stretch so the sock conforms to your foot. Ribbing around the ankle also hugs the foot for optimal fit while the arch gets elastic support. High density cushioning surrounds the foot and lower leg, and a padded shin protects this vulnerable area from ski boot rub. A comfortable, invisible seam protects against chafing and the heel and toe are reinforced to prevent premature wear.

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
