It’s no secret that high-level skiers prefer thin socks. When competition skiers started approaching us to let us know they were using our Aireator® inside their ski boots, we began investigating. It turned out that fitted boots were a great match for our thin socks - even with a short cuff. We enlisted some of the top skiers in the World, including the most successful American alpine skier of all time. The Talon™ was developed by him and in it’s first season it was used to win the Alpine World Cup overall crystal globe. We reccomend this sock for serious winter athletes who compete and/or have extremely close fi tting, ergonomic boots.
