Ski socks & snowboard socks

Comfort on the slopes is extremely important, although ski socks and snowboard socks are sometimes the least important items on winter sports. The right socks are just as important as a good ski jacket or a pair of ski boots. If your feet get cold or you get blisters, this is probably due to your ski socks or snowboard socks instead of your shoes. A good pair of ski socks is therefore crucial! Are you going on a winter holiday soon and do you want to know which ski socks and snowboard socks to buy? Below we explain everything about these types of socks.

Winter sports ski socks

The fit of your shoes is important when finding the right ski socks or snowboard socks, because it all starts with how your socks feel in your ski boots. The technology of these socks has become more and more advanced over the last few years. The latest models have a better fit, breathability and moisture management. When you compare socks, the main differences are the composition of the fabric and the degree of cushioning.

The advantages of ski socks and snowboard socks

Prepare yourself well when you go on a winter holiday. Make sure you have good clothes and of course excellent ski socks! Below you will find all the benefits of these socks in a row:
– Ski socks keep you warm and dry during skiing or snowboarding.
– These socks offer extra protection and support. There is a lot of pressure on the shinbone. Ski socks protect the shin, ankle and heel.
– They ensure that the shoe is properly ‘filled’. The space between the foot and the shoe is properly filled, which prevents slipping in the shoe.
– Ski socks keep your feet at the right temperature. Skiing or snowboarding with cold feet is annoying. A perfect fit and the use of special materials keep your feet at the right temperature.

Merino ski socks

Most ski socks and snowboard socks are made of merino wool or a synthetic material. Wool and synthetic material are similar when it comes to functionality and durability.

Merino wool is a material that retains warmth when wet. Wool also breathes more easily and is known for its ability to wick moisture away from the skin. This is an important factor in keeping your feet dry. Synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or polyester, have become more popular in recent years, especially as an alternative for people with sensitive skin who are allergic to wool. Some skiers prefer synthetic socks, although merino ski socks are hardly itchy compared to the socks of old.

In any case, stay away from cotton ski socks. Your feet will get sweaty while skiing or snowboarding with this material. Cotton does not have the moisture-wicking properties of wool and synthetic fabrics, which can lead to wet, cold feet and blisters.

The best ski and snowboard socks

Many people buy pretty expensive skis and good boots, but they also need a good pair of socks. And these don’t have to be too expensive. Pay attention to this when buying ski socks and snowboard socks:

The material

As mentioned before: stay away from cotton. This material gets wet quickly and is not comfortable. Most ski socks are made in the shape of your foot, so they fit comfortably during skiing or snowboarding. This means a pre-shaped heel and toe with rubbers in all the right places so that your ski sock doesn’t slide around in your ski boots.

The weight

Ski socks are divided into a number of categories: ultralight, lightweight and midweight. Ultralight socks are becoming more and more popular. These ski socks increase the stability of your ankle so that you can make tricky manoeuvres on the piste.

Lightweight socks are thin ski socks. These socks give you more space in your ski boot so that your blood can flow to your foot more easily. Lightweight socks are ideal if you don’t want to pay too much, but still want to hit the slopes safely. Midweight ski socks are the thickest of the three and have a thicker padding in the toes and heels. The thin top ensures good blood flow. Especially snowboarders sometimes choose thicker socks, because some snowboard boots are looser than ski boots.

The length of ski socks

Most ski socks go down to the knees, which offers protection against shin bumps. Cross-country skiers and snowboarders can choose socks with a shorter length, because the boots in these sports are often shorter.


Always pay attention to your own shoe size before choosing narrow, medium, large or extra large. If you’re between sizes, it’s best to choose a smaller size for a good fit.

Unisex socks

Enforma Socks are unisex socks. There is no distinction between men’s and women’s ski socks. Our ski socks are so flexible that they can easily accommodate the difference between men’s and women’s feet. The socks from Enforma ensure that the moisture is removed and your feet stay dry. To compensate for the difference between a man’s foot and a woman’s foot, we offer smaller sizing arcs (36-38, 39-41 etc.) compared to many other brands that offer larger sizing arcs (e.g. 36-39). These size curves indicate which sizes the sock in question is suitable for.

Maintenance of ski and snowboard socks

It is recommended to wash ski and snowboard socks inside out at a normal temperature. Avoid using the dryer and ironing, as the high temperatures affect the elasticity of the fabrics. Socks keep their best shape when stored flat, instead of rolled up.
