We’ve worked with Point6 in the past and I’ve had the honor of trying a bunch of different socks from them, both ski and other types. These are by far my favorite ski sock that I have from them. The Ultra Light ski sock tailors my sock needs perfectly. These socks don’t have cushioning (hence the ultra light), but don’t that scare you, they are still very comfortable. If I didn’t look at the packaging, and you asked me if they had cushioning, I would’ve said yes. They are that comfortable.
The wool blend (62% Wool, 34% Nylon, & 4% Spandex) ensures a warm sock, quick drying abilities, and a nice tight fit. The tight fit is crucial for me these days. I started noticing socks that would bunch up and move around when I ski and it started to really irritate me. Not a problem with these tight fitting babies!
There is plenty of ventilation so when my feet start to sweat, the moisture doesn’t just collect on my skin. Now that I’ve been using Point6 socks for over a year, I can confidently say that you will be pleased with your purchase and the quality and build of Point6 is outstanding. I’m still wearing year old socks, because they still look and perform like they are brand new. For $21, you are getting a ski sock that will last you endless powder days. I wear a size 8.5 shoe and the Medium sock size is absolutely money. Oh, and did you know that Point6 socks are made here in the USA?!
