Reviews for Thorlos XSKI

This new redesign socks totally missed the mark and are only good for Spring Skiing and Spring Motorcycling. If you sweat and like a thin dress sock these are perfect for you. There is no cushioning underfoot which I need and desire.

NOTE: Thorlo’s generally are more thicker have more cushioning under foot then on other sock brands and that's why I like and swear by them. BUT the NEW 2016 Redesigned XSKI Ski Socks is an utter let down and is just a complet disappointment, and is totally useable for me for downhill skiing and winter motorcycling :( They're not substantial enough, they have half the amount of fabric ate the previous model so they're NOT going to be nearly as warm by any means. Also another huge negative is there is NO cushioning on the bottom of the foot., Discontinued: (“Original” XSKI Extreme Ski) Color: Charcoal/Black. They're were/are awesome for; Winter Hiking, Downhill Skiing, Shoveling Snow and Winter Motorcycling! These socks were and are so awesome that I didn't evening have to wear long-johns under my jeans for winter beach hikes. Discontinued: (XWXU Experia Wool Silk Crew) Color: Charcoal. They're were/are awesome for; Hiking, Fall/Winter Trail Walking/Running and for Fall/Winter Casual daily use! They had/have a great temperature range, if you're cold you pulled them up and if you got warm all you have to do was roll them down then you are all good to go! I do wish there were 1” inch taller, otherwise they were/are perfect! Discontinued: (SLW Ski Wool/Silk Socks) Color: Black. They're were/are awesome for; Fall/Winter Hiking, Downhill Skiing, Shoveling Snow and Winter Motorcycling and Winter Casual daily use! I wish there were 1” inch taller due to shrinkage. Discontinued: (WLTH Light Hiking Socks) Color: Charcoal. They're were/are awesome for; Fall/Winter Hiking, Shoveling Snow and Winter Casual daily use! I wish there were 1” inch taller. Thorlo PLEASE update and bring my favorite socks back!!! ATTN: Thorlo’s Marketing Department, you need to give a great product a chance to catch on and sometimes that takes time. Sincerely, A loyal and totally bummed Thorlo sock end-user. GearFreakNY

The NEW 2016 Redesigned XSKI Ski Socks as an utter let down and is just a complet disappointment, and is totally useable for me for Winter Hiking, Downhill Skiing and Winter Motorcycling :( In footwear I need good arch support and in socks I need “Moderate Cushioning” for comfort and to take up some volume for a good snug proper fit. The “Original” and recently discontinued Thorlo’s XSKI Extreme Ski Socks were the BEST Ski Socks ever!!! BUT then Thorlo discontinued them :( so they were years I had to go without new winter socks. Now they have been redesigned and they look great especially in All-Black (Steele Raven)! Styling I give them a solid A, BUT they're NOT the same Extreme Ski socks anymore :( They're not substantial enough, they have half the amount of fabric, so they're NOT going to be nearly as warm by any means. Also another huge negative is there is NO cushioning on the bottom of the foot, there is only slight cushioning on the shins which makes no sense to me. To me these are ultra-thin ski socks and anyone that can downhill ski or ride a motorcycle in the Northeast winters with an ultra-thin socks boggles my mind and feet. I'm always the last one off the ski lifts in the bitter cold of Vermont. And I ride my Adventure Sport Tourer in 4-seasons in New York State. I give these Socks a D. There is NOT enough fabric for warmth and there's NO cushioning on the lower portion of the foot for comfort and added warmth, and that is the whole point of quality ski socks in the first place, right? So I am NOT happy and neither are my feet! I am so bummed out that Thorlo recently discontinued (4) of my favorite adventure socks :( Thorlo PLEASE update and bring my favorite socks back!!!
