Smartwool Women’s PhD Snowboard Medium Socks ($22)

Key features:
Cushioning; SmartWool for moisture, temperature, and odor control; four-degree banded fit system; and mesh zones for ventilation.

Pros: Sandra says, “These socks kept my feet super dry and warm the entire day and evening. I wore the socks to a night shoot up on Mt. Hood and I didn’t have to worry at all about my feet being cold!” She adds, “The socks felt amazing on my feet and had great ventilation earlier in the day, and then once evening hit, they still kept my feet so warm.” She also liked the length and not having to worry about her socks bunching up thanks to the banded fit system.

Cons: “Nope, no cons! These socks are sweet.”

Verdict: Sandra says, “I learned that a great pair of socks can really help out with the comfort in your boots. They were so comfy right from the start. I definitely recommend these guys.”
