The article focuses on the new designs of winter sports socks in the U.S. for 2006. Hosiery designers are doing a good job of wiping out a whole litany of common cold weather complaints that often interrupt fun outdoor activities. Often, wool is combined with synthetic wicking yarns to yield better moisture management and in some cases, anti-microbial properties, as well. In addition, many of the latest winter sport socks are offered in a variety of weights to match boot preference. The new cushion pattern, together with the SmartFit system and the addition of bold colors, make the new Snowboard Light sock a comfortable, lightweight choice for a full day on the mountain.
