Being married to pro skier and mountaineer Cody Townsend certainly has its perks, as in the case with Le Bent Elyse Saugstad Pro Series Snow Sock. Inspired from her husband’s pro series socks, this is the first women’s backcountry ski sock ever produced. Boasting the very same technical features as Cody’s sock, it uses a more specific women’s fit which makes it slightly shorter in the forefoot and leg height. Crafted from a signature Merino blend, the sock ensures exceptional breathability, temperature regulation and comfort by melding the luxuriously soft on-skin properties of bamboo rayon and the unrivalled odor resistance of merino wool. This means you can wear the socks for days or even weeks without them breaking down, smelling causing blisters or foot fatigue. Designed with a Definitive Fit System and a proprietary foot molding Memory Stretch, this delivers a precise form fit, combined with targeted cushioning in the toe box, ventilation panels for airflow on the boot pack and an anti-wrinkling, elasticated instep that doesn’t bunch underfoot. Slightly thinner than previous iterations, the innovative silicone strips on the heel and upper calf keep the sock locked in place, aided by a technically knit achilles support band that drastically minimizes heel lift while you hike, eliminating blisters and hot spots. Ladies, if you want a sock good enough for Elyse to put her name on it, then this is all the sock you will ever need for your ski touring and mountaineering exploits.
