Wigwam Snow Sirocco

The Snow Sirocco is an incredibly popular consumer-reviewed sock, and it’s one of the other strongest contenders for the best budget sock on the market. 

It’s a bit thicker than most contemporary alternatives, favoring a more plush old-school approach. It has an edge on other budget brands such as Fox River because it’s knit is much more heavily composed of wool, giving it a degree of warmth and comfort that’s very difficult to replicate with synthetics. They’re a great option if you forgot your expensive socks at home, or need something affordable for the occasional trip to the mountains.

Wigwam socks are warm and comfortable enough for any day at the resort, and are built with plenty of volume for padding. It’s tapered with a specifically padded shin, allowing a degree of control that similar unshaped options lack.

 That being said, this isn’t a high performance sock, it fits a little more loosely and lacks the accuracy of engagement that higher end options offer. The super thin Ski Whisper socks also from Wigwam are a cheap alternative for skiers seeking something precise and low-profile. As affordable as it is, the Snow Sirocco is a legitimate ski sock, it comes in assorted colors, so it’s not a purely utilitarian purchase.
