When I first got a pair of Stance socks, I couldn’t wait to try them on! Their bright, fun-loving colours and designs make some of the most boring clothes come to life. I sometimes get ‘shin bang’ from my ski boots, and so I was sceptical about the thinness of the socks without any extra shin padding. However, I found them just as good, if not better than the socks I had used previously. They have no extra seams which means that all the pressure from the boots is evenly spread out across my whole shins, which I found helped.
Additionally, thinner socks help keep the blood flowing because they don’t cut off the circulation in your lower legs and therefore keep your feet warmer. Additionally, the Stance socks I use are ‘compression socks’ which means that they have been designed to hug your calves and, in doing so, increase blood circulation. Compression garments are very popular in elite sport - the increased circulation helps keep your feet warmer, so you can have the best day on the slopes possible, no matter the temperature.
