Point 6 Socks - Review
Up until a few years ago I was a big believer in cheap synthetic wicking socks that were supposed to move moisture away from my feet and keep them warm and comfy. Not so. For well over 30 years I hadn’t had a truly comfortable skiing experience, be it alpine or backcountry, wearing synthetic socks. Then I tried Merino Wool - the new wonder fabric in my books, and also the main ingredient in all of Point 6’s socks. Merino has a good rep for keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer, and also for not making your feet sweat or stink.
Simply put, Merino Wool is made for active outdoor adventures. We’ll go into more details in a moment but first, a little background on a sock company called Point6 and why you should know about them.
