We amped up our popular Starry Night with just the right amount of targeted padding on the front shin area where skiers and riders often need a little more cushion. Cushioning on the bottom of the foot and shin area make this sock the gold standard for comfort and performance on the hill. Nothing feels better than the warmth Merino Wool provides when the mercury drops. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. This workhorse of a sock is a great option for skiers and riders who know that a great day on the mountain starts with a great pair of socks. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
