When it comes to developing the most innovative and best performing women’s outdoor socks that are also the best looking ski socks in the category, Darn Tough Vermont takes a typically Vermont-inspired, common sense approach: to design a sock women will absolutely love, turn to a woman designer. In this case, that woman is renowned outdoor apparel designer Poppy Gall. Gall seeks creative inspiration from the natural world for colors and designs that are so fun, sophisticated, and charming that it’s almost a shame to cover them with a boot. But don’t let the sheer beauty of Poppy Gall’s newest design fool you, the Edelweiss is pure Darn Tough Vermont: made in the USA, unconditionally guaranteed for life, and built to deliver unsurpassed performance on the mountain. See it at the 2013 Outdoor Retailer Winter Show in booth #32148.
Knit with fine gauge merino wool to the highest density of any outdoor performance sock on the market, the Edelweiss features a cushioned foot bottom and reinforced heel and toe to deliver the ultimate in fit, wicking, and temperature regulation from the minute the lifts start turning to the minute they stop. And the terry-loop shin pad offers high-density padding without adding excessive bulk to reduce painful shin bang after long hours on the slopes. The Edelweiss socks perform flawlessly inside a boot. But they really come into their element when the boot comes off at the end of the day.
As always, Darn Tough performance socks are made in Northfield, Vermont by skilled sock-makers using the most advanced knitting machines in the industry, and are unconditionally guaranteed for life.
The Edelweiss will be available in the fall. For more information, please visit www.darntough.com.
