You shouldn't wear just any old socks to snowboard. Regular all cotton socks will keep your feet wet and cold all day long. That is why Fox River designed these Boarder Zone socks. While designing this sock, Fox River had hard core snowboarders thoroughly test these socks to make sure that they will keep your feet warm and dry on the mountain. The wicking properties of natural merino wool transports sweat and moisture away from your skin. The other nice feature about this snowboard sock is the form fit result of Lycra 3D. The sock hugs your foot providing maximum skin contact with your feet. These are premium socks designed for all snowboard skill levels.
