Everyone who skis knows someone who rides in nasty socks. Even if they have ski socks, there isn't much that beats the feeling of new ones, especially Le Bent Socks. Le Bent socks are a mixture of bamboo and merino wool. The combination of these fibres creates a sock that is naturally warm, comfortable, and stink free. Now there's some browny points for when you take your bots off!
