These are my absolute favorite ski touring socks, and I use them for downhill skiing and general mountaineering as well. I love the extra cushioning on the shin and heel to keep my feet and legs comfortable while I'm moving through the mountains all day long, and to help prevent blisters and shin bang. I recently wore these almost daily on a two week trip to climb and ski high altitude volcanoes in Ecuador, and they did not disappoint. They are durable as well and showing no signs of wear despite heavy use. Highly recommend!
These where not what I thought they were but they were out of stock of what I wanted . But other than that always a great product.
