Over-Engineered Premium Option
Falke SK4

See all pictures

Falke socks are more often paired with dress slacks than they are with snow pants, but this producer of high-end textiles makes a ski sock that keeps pace with dedicated outdoor brands. The SK4 is a quality sock, targeted towards athletes with a high degree of technical ability. It’s designed to provide as much contact as possible between the shin and the boot, giving the rider seamless interface with their ski. 

The SK4 is built to be compatible with all custom molded boot shells, and goes so far as to make specific adjustments with the padding between the left and the right socks. All this attention to detail adds up quickly, but for the right skier the SK4 is a garment specifically tailored to meet their demands.

Most high-end socks primarily use merino wool reinforced with polyester weave. Falke opts for polypropylene blended with around 20% merino, which allows the SK4 to maximize the benefits of its low profile build, while retaining some of the insulative and antibacterial properties of merino wool. 

Falke’s formal reputation is fully extended to this take on a ski sock, it’s built with the formal- and traditional-style skier in mind, over-engineered to provide a degree of control that lies out of the reach of thicker alternatives. The SK4 is definitely a bit of a specialty piece, but not without its appeal.
