The ASI Merino Performance Socks are thirtytwo's highly technical socks featuring Advanced Sock Integration, which provides excellent padding and is designed to make the perfect match for thirtytwo's boot liners.
The Advanced Sock Integration consists of a more technically padded sock than traditional socks. Using their huge amount of experience making snowboard boots thirtytwo have taken the key fit areas on their liners and used multi density knitting to create extra padding on the areas most likely to cause discomfort. Areas such as the ankle have been highlighted as a pressure point, where a C shaped pad features higher density material in order to alleviate pressure.
The Merino Performance sock is made with thirtytwo's ASI Merino Performance Yarn Blend which has been specially developed to make hard working snowboard socks for riders who are on their feet, in the snow, all day. Merino wool has incredible moisture management qualities and is naturally anti-bacterial. The super soft material helps to keep the foot dry and comforatle, wicking moisture away from the skin and allowing the foot to breath. The fabric also features a generous helping of Nylon and Elastane, to produce an extremely warm and durable sock that has plenty of stretch to comfortably fit feet of all shapes and sizes.
The technical padding in this sock sets it apart from many other snow socks, with multi-density padding used in key areas, rather than just single density padding, to relieve points of irritation more effectively. This technical padding and the high quality materials come together to deliver a super comfortable and supportive sock for skiers and snowboarders who like to ride hard and want all-day comfort in all conditions.
