Here's what other sites are saying:
The X-Socks Men's Ski Performance Socks ensure your feet won't roast or freeze while you ski the day away. X-Socks made these ski socks with merino wool, nylon, elastane, polypropylene, and silk for the ideal combination of warmth, softness, and wicking capabilities. The Traverse AirFlow Channel System ensures that air circulates around your foot, keeping it dry without making it cold. The Ski Performance Socks include a shin and calf protector, so you don't get sore when you ski a full day.
