Howl loves Darn Tough! These are great all around socks and will work great for Nordic skiing as well.
Here is what Darn Tough says:
If you redesign one of the most popular socks in the line you better come correct. Increased breathability with mesh panels on top of the foot, a new smooth ribbing upper that stays put forever, and extended cushion over the Achilles – just a few heavy additions to one of the lightest hike socks out there.
Performance Fit: No slipping, no bunching, and no blisters.
Fine Gauge Knitting: Unprecedented durability and our unique “put it on, forget it’s on” feel.
Fast Action Wicking: Pulls moisture away from skin. Fast drying.
All Weather Performance: Cool in the summer, warm in the winter.
Naturally Antimicrobial: Repels bacteria and odor.
Guaranteed For Life: No strings. No conditions. For life.
Merino Wool: The ultimate fiber for breathability and comfort in all conditions.
True Seamless™: Undetectable seam fusion for an ultra smooth, invisible feel.
Light Cushion: Light and strong with a thin layer of cushioning along base of foot. Our most versatile construction.
Micro Crew Height: A shorter, more concise take on the traditional crew height. Peeks just above the top of a standard hiking boot.
