Use: wintersports of all kinds
Break-in Period: none
Price Paid: $6
The best snowsport sock I've ever owned. I don't get to ski much, but I wear these mountain biking, hiking in winter, trail running: you name it. They are particularly great for hard mountain biking in the dead of winter because the extra cushioning on the shins keeps me warmer against the head winds. The shin cushioning works well to protect the ankles when my Torre GTX's need to be cinched up tightly.
The socks honestly do everything advertised extremely well. I don't need to dispute any of their claims, only affirm them. You cannot go wrong with the PHD line.
