The MERINO SOCKS SKI COMPRESSION are the ideal socks for strenuous days of skiing. Whether for freeriding or a free tour with strenuous climbs: Ortovox compression socks with finest Merino wool optimally support your calf muscles and protect against muscle fatigue.
The compression effect of Ortovox SKI COMPRESSION sock is DISTRIBUTED EQUALLY FROM THE ANKLE TO THE CALF. This construction SUPPORTS THE MUSCLES and PROTECTS AGAINST FATIGUE. During ascent, but also during descent, Ortovox calf muscles have to absorb numerous knocks and vibrations. The muscles are placed under continuous stress and can quickly fatigue. Balanced compression can slow this effect.
And the SKI COMPRESSION also excels in its fit and breathability: The ventilation system on the shin and the webbing system on the foot provide the necessary moisture wicking and improved breathability.
The SKI COMPRESSION has an extra ergonomic right/left fit that sits optimally on the foot. The flat body construction allows for a crease and pressure-free fit. What’s more, the ankle stabilization zones and the elastic double-stretch cuff prevent unnecessary slipping. To avoid blisters and chafing, Ortovox have kept the toe seam flat. The padded heel and toe areas also improve the cushioning and protects against chafing.
Merino wool means the socks are naturally moisture and odor neutralizing and feel very comfortable. The SKI COMPRESSION is therefore perfect for climbs and descents!

Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
