Anatomical fit plus Merino warmth and breathability
At this price you do not want to lose one in the wash!

Hidden away inside your boot, socks are the unsung heroes (and sometimes villains) of the ski clothing world, protecting your feet from the rigours of long days on the mountain.

On warmer days - such as in Easter - thick, padded socks can be counter-productive to comfort, over-heating your feet and making them sweaty and clammy.

Definitely notching one up for the sock heroes, Icebreaker's Ultra Light Over the Calf Sock makes up for its overly long and descriptive name by delivering everything it says on the tin - and more.

Long enough to pull up beyond the top of any boot, and ultra light, this sock brings the soft, breathable insulation and odour resistance of a merino wool mix to your feet.

Support zones around the ankle, over the Achilles, and along the instep keep the sock in place against your skin where they might rub, avoiding blisters, and a seamless toe closure means extra comfort when hiking.

On colder days you can always add Icebreaker's 69% merino Over the Calf Ski Liner for extra warmth.
