Darn Tough Vermont unveiled four new socks for Fall 2013 at Outdoor Retailer: Two new Light Cushion socks and two new ski/ride socks.
The Light Cushion Hike/Trek sock delivers all the performance of their traditional cushion sock, but with 50 percent less wool yarn weight. Fit, temperature regulation, wicking ability, cushioning and durability have not been compromised in the making of this sock.
In the Lifestyle department, it’s a new light cushion women's with cool designs. For skiers and snowboarders, the bulk-free, ultra-light, high-performing Function 5 (F5) comes with five precisely located comfort pads to help offset the pressure points inherent to most ski boots. Ladies? DTV has something very special for you: A fun and sophisticated over-the-calf padded cushion ski/ride sock called the Edelweiss.
All socks will hit market in Fall 2013.
