How to choose your child’s Ski Socks?

Give your kids a helping hand by prepping them for new adventures like skiing. The feet of the kids strain a lot while skiing than on normal days so it is necessary to choose a sock that offers both warmth and protection.

Choose technical socks for the best skiing experience:

Technical socks have padding at heel and toe and cushioning at the ball of the foot. It is usually made of softer and breathable materials like merino wool. It is ergonomically designed due to the anatomical differences between the feet of boys and girls. It protects the pressure points of the feet and prevents the rubbing of the sole within boots. Mesh weave on top of the foot makes the socks breathable, helps in managing moisture, and prevents odour. Arch support helps the sock stay in place and avoid the risk of slippage.

Ski socks are different from the other regular socks:
1. Ski socks offer moisture-wicking properties built into the fibers to keep feet dry and warm.
2. 
The material used in making ski socks is best known for thermal regulating and odour resistant property which is nothing but merino wool.
3. Ski socks are of ankle length and it offers the coverage for the area where the boot could rub against the skin.

Proper fit :

Choose socks that are not too tight or loose. A pair of ski socks should be both fit and comfortable. Socks that are too tight can lead to ankle swelling, foot pain, and rashes due to bad circulation of blood. Big socks, bunch around the heels, and lead to blisters, and can cause irritable wrinkles. Always take the time to try out different sizes in socks and choose a sock that snuggles your feet and leave enough space to wiggle your toes freely. 

Tips:
1.
Layer the socks with an outer shell for an extreme skiing setup.
2.
The thickness of the socks can be varied by choosing different cushioning from light to thick.
3.
Kid’s ski jacket and pants add additional features and give a more comfy feel for skiing.
