Now, you're probably thinking... "Oh how good can a ski sock actually be?". Well like a mothers hug, the Le Bent Definitive Light sock makes you feel safe.
Made from a blend of Bamboo and Merino wool, yes that's right. You're wearing wood. Anyways, made from a blend of Bamboo (fibre to be exact) and Merino wool, this sock takes ski socks to a whole new level.
Never have cold feet ever again. I slept in the back of my car this past season at Perisher and owned 5 pairs of socks for the entire season and my boots still smell like daisys and these socks smell like roses. I don't know how the boys over at Le Bent did it, but Simon Blondel is onto a game changer. After purchasing skis from Simon, he gave me some prototype Le Bent socks. I don't know why but he did. (nice guy). That was three years ago. Since then the socks have been to America, Japan, Australia and yes I've played soccer with them. They're still in top notch condition and I honestly can't imagine how my feet would feel without them.
But hey, how good can they be? They're just socks. Well they're good enough to have Australia's top riders riding them. Russ Henshaw, Chris Booth, Boen Ferguson, Charles Beckinsale, Nate Johnsone and Charlie Timmens all keeping their feet cosy. Not to mention the X games Gold medalist, Joe Schuster among New Zealand top riders Harry Pettit and Jake Koia.
Want more proof to just how good they are? Well they were established in 2010, it's not 2014 and they're the top selling ski sock in Australia. It usually takes years upon years, and countless marketing to create a reputation Le Bent has. However, in just four short years and little to no marketing Le Bent has set the bench mark for base layers, socks and head wear.
If you love your feet, you'll love Le Bent. Enough said.
