Although necessary, tight and unforgiving ski boots can often get uncomfortable, interfering with your enjoyment and even your form. Falke Medium Volume Wool Ski Socks take you to higher levels of comfort and even performance, improving contact with the boots and delivering the best power transmission. Ergonomically designed for the best possible fit, thicker, anatomically placed pads protect the toes, shin and calf, achilles tendon, ankle and heel, absorbing shock and reducing pressure, while anti wrinkle ankles and a finer weave at other areas allows full movement, with air channels to enhance breathability. The specific left/right fit of the socks puts cushioning and air channels exactly where you will most benefit from them. A blend of natural wool and synthetic yarn is used to optimise warmth and comfort, quickly wicking away sweat.(01/13)

We've been using these Falke SK2 socks for a few years now, bought at our local ski shop Bartletts. They have survived many ski trips, long walking holidays, and many hand washes in delicate hair shampoo. After shrinking a couple of pairs of Bridgedale walking socks to half size in the washing machine on a wool wash I'll never again risk these kinds of socks in a machine.
Buying in the shop was very useful because we were able to try them on to get the exact right sizes for our feet; 42-43 fits size 8-9 UK feet, neither tight nor loose.
These socks are referred to as 'technical', mainly due to the comfort pad design, this gives them a major advantage over basic/cheaper socks, they are made from high quality materials & have lasted years. I purchased other pairs many years ago (not from Amazon) & they are a little baggy now but still going strong, amazing considering the amount of use. They are worth the extra expense just for the ‘comfort-factor’ alone, add to that years of producing technical ski socks, for skiers’ at the highest-level of the sport & you have a winning combination. Buy these socks & they will be one of the best ski-investments you’ve ever made, the quality exceeds the price.
Very comfy!. A good length - up to just below the knee, so don't slip down and I think they look rather stylish.
These are not thick wooly socks, things have moved on since the 1990's!
The material is surprisingly thin, but is one of the breathable fabrics so no problems with feeling cold or wet.
The "padded areas" (e.g. front of shin and ankle) have a slightly thicker layer of fabric to provide some additional cushioning.
Can be a bit tight around the top - but I do have quite large calfs.
great heat and they dont move
have bought them for all the family
now use them for riding and wellies too
Spending the extra money is worth it in my opinion. This stay in place and I had zero rubbing despite skiing all day for three days on my recent trip to Bulgaria.
He has very long big calves as he is tall for his age. These were great. Did not fall down or ruck in his boots!
Don't forget to wash them with woollens on 30 degrees and do not tumble dry to avoid shrinking!
