The 10 Best Ski Socks
This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in February of 2018. When you're out on the slopes, the last thing you need is cold, sweaty, or blistered feet. With a good pair of ski socks, you can ensure that your lower extremities stay warm and dry, no matter how far the temperature drops. Our selections prevent moisture buildup, odors, and slippage while keeping you comfortable all day long. Many are quite stylish, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

At this time, we've kept a range of unisex options as well as those made specifically for men or women, but not to fret; most of our sex-specific choices offer a corresponding model for the opposite gender. We opted to remove the WeiMeet Knee-High, as they've become hard to find, as well as the Eurosocks OTC, which are more likely than many of our choices to bunch or fall down. Instead, we like the anatomically designed Icebreaker Merino Ski+ Light, which fit well with no baggy ankles. We also decided to add the Darn Tough Vermont Function 5 thanks to their thoughtful padding. They even have a pad made specifically to keep buckle pressure at bay. And, finally, we kept the popular Pure Compression Thermal and Smartwool PhD Light. Both are comfortable and come in attractive color choices and designs, so you can find one to match your ski gloves or jacket, in case that's important to you.
