Bridgedale, a global market leader in the manufacture of technical socks, announced a new ski sock for winter 2017, the Retro Fit.  Ideally suited for rippers who demand a precision fit in their ski boots.

The Retro Fit offers a snug fit that won’t budge even when putting on tight ski boots.

The Retro Fit offers a snug fit that won’t budge even when putting on tight ski boots. This unique new sock offers a friction-free “slide zone” at the heel and over the top of the ankle. There is also a strip with added Lycra over the top of the ankle to keep the sock in place when sliding the foot into a tight ski boot. Additionally, Bridgedale’s MerinoFusion™ technology combines the warmth of high quality merino wool with the wicking abilities of synthetic fibers for versatile temperature control in all winter conditions.

Bridgedale’s Vertige Light is the most popular style in the Wintersport range.

Finally, even though the sock is considered lightweight, targeted padding in the heel and shin pad areas ensure all day comfort. The Retro Fit will be available online and in specialty ski shops in North America starting in August 2017.

For technical piste or powder skiing the Vertige Light is the ideal sock choice. A lightweight construction with targeted padding in key areas ensures comfort all day without compromising the performance fit of modern ski and board footwear.
