Ultra thin profile and smart features keep you ultra comfortable.
The "ultra" in the Dakine Men's Ultra Sock could be referring to its ultra thin profile. As fans of lightweight socks could attest, it could also be referring to the way it keeps you ultra comfortable by providing a closer (and you could say more integrated) connection between your foot and your boot. This weight of sock is also nice if you'll be riding in warmer mountain conditions where a super thermal sock is not necessary.
Beyond offering a great foot-to-boot fit, this sock provides comfort in a number of other ways. Two compressive zones and the stretch ribbed cuff secure it in place so it doesn't bunch, and the reinforced heel and toe offer added protection where there is the most contact between your foot and boot. The merino wool fibers trap in warmth while offering excellent breathability, spandex adds stretch for a foot-conforming fit, and nylon adds durability to prevent premature wearing. The Ultra sock bucks the skeptics, proving how an ultra-thin sock can be both durable and ultra comfortable under your boot.

Great thin socks!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I would totally suggest these socks so someone else looking for rad Dakine socks.
Only concern about these socks is the colored lines running down the sock are actually a little thicker of a material than the black fabric which could be uncomfortable if using these for ski socks.
When you have lines in socks and wear them on a long day of skiing, your skin is pressed into the texture of the sock and can be pretty uncomfortable.
I have not skied these socks yet, so I can not totally say that is the case though.
These socks are pretty thin, true to size, soft, and best of all really tall.
