Cody Townsend has earned a reputation for being one of the gnarliest skiers in the backcountry, so it makes perfect sense that Le Bent worked with him to develop his signature Le Send Cody Pro Model Ski Sock. Known for putting down big lines that require equally big ascents, Cody addressed the shortcomings of other ski socks with the goal of eliminating the minor irritations that can turn seriously painful after a few laps on the skin track. It starts with a material blended from bamboo-derived rayon and merino wool, giving you the cooling properties of rayon along with the comfort and funk-fighting abilities of wool. But it’s the critical details, like silicone grippers that keep the sock attached securely to your calf, as well as the heel of your boot, that really set these apart. If your regular ski socks are leaving you feeling let down, these are exactly the pick-me-up you’ve been needing.
