Ski Touring Socks

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Looking for recommendations for thin ski touring socks, the limited stinky type (e.g. Merino wool, Silver thread etc)
Used to wear some thin touring socks with Merino wool - can't remember the make or model of the socks. As the toes amd heels were wearing very thin I replaced them last year with some smartwool PHD's which were significantly thicker and led to foot cramps.

Is there a thin version of the PHD, what about the Falke ST4, any others to consider?

I use Falke Energising ski socks, which have a light compression effect. The most import thing for me with ski and touring socks is that the maintain their fit and stay up all day, otherwise you are heading for blisters.

They aren't cheap but they still feel like new after many weeks of use.

I got some sale price Salomon compression socks. Really good when combined with taping to keep blisters in check.

Icebreaker socks are good. Range includes thin and thick. Long lasting too.

@DB, smartwool do a "ski Pro" ultralight ultralight sock padding on heel and shin, as to Teko both in merino wool

seconded. I use Falke for years, the quality is top notch. You may cringe when spending 27 quid per pair, but 5 years later you will think it was a good deal. I ski about 30 days a year and most of the Falke pairs I have are 4-5 years old, some older.

You can find Falke SK4s for less than £15 if you keep searching for online sales out of season.

It’s all about Teko! I swear by them: thin, very comfortable for uphill and downhill, long (stay up over top of calves) and merino.

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

Thanks everyone for the other reccomendations if I can pick up a pair cheap or I see them in the flesh and think they are thin enough I'll buy a pair to try out. Once I work out which pair works best I'll buy 4 or 5 pairs. The last ski tour I did was 7 hours long (Dachstein crossing) with footcramps Confused - don't want that again.
