Our Kids socks are true performance socks with comfort to boot. They're never dumbed down or scaled back. Fine gauge Merino Wool pulls moisture away from skin and dries fast. Dry feet = Happy kids. Nothing else provides the same wonderful warmth when the mercury drops. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. Yes! We've added just the right amount of targeted padding on the front shin area where skiers and riders often need a little more cushion. True Seamless construction provides a smooth, streamlined fit. Less bulk. More comfort. This padded sock will keep up with your kids all day (even if you can't). Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
