The Turtle Ridge Foundation, the non-profit organization founded by Olympic Champion Bode Miller and his family, inspired this lightweight ski sock with classic diamond-knit styling. The foundation which supports youth and adaptive ski programs is based in Franconia, New Hampshire, just up the road from Cannon Mountainhome of the Franconia Ski club and host of the annual BodeFest. Skiers of all abilities will appreciate the Franconia's blend of cushioning, warmth, and breathability, made possible by 100% US-sourced merino wool and Farm to Feet's hidden plaiting construction that allows for targeted padding without compromising the low-volume fit.
  • U.S. Merino Wool: Merino wool is soft, itch-free, naturally odor- and bacteria-resistant, cool in the summer and warm in winter. We source our 100% U.S. grown merino wool exclusively from sheep raised by American farmers on American farms.
  • Hidden Nylon Plaiting: Advanced construction that sandwiches stretch yarns between two layers of body yarn, hidden nylon plaiting creates a smooth exterior and a low-profile fit that is ideal for technical and sport socks. A side benefit of this modern knitting technique is its ability to incorporate complex patterns, open-weave zones, and intricate designs for increased performance and extra style.
  • Targeted Cushion Zone: Found primarily in the Adventure Snow and Adventure Hike Elite series, targeted cushioning adds shock-absorbing loop knit at key impact areas of foot, shin & calf depending on designed use. Targeted cushioning helps reduce impact from activities like skiing and hiking while providing a better fit for ski boots and low-volume shoes.
  • Half-Density Cushioning:On the inside of the sock, a terry knit loop every other stitch creates half-density cushioning to add softness and wicking performance without dramatically affecting sock thickness. Its lower density makes it ideal for casual socks.
  • Seamless Toe Closure:Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat connection in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating blister-generating friction.
