The 7 best thermal socks for women you can buy in 2021 – from hiking and ski pairs, to slipper socks and non-slip styles

WHEN the Winter months roll around, our toes tend to feel the cold first - and there's nothing worse than having freezing feet when trying to enjoy a brisk walk in the snow.

The best thermal socks for women are obviously toasty and high-quality enough not to get holes in after a couple of wears, but ones that are used for physical activities should be able to wick sweat away and prevent blisters, too.

There is a wide range of thermal socks out there, all for separate occasions - from skiing, to cosying up indoors on a blustery winter day.

Whether you're on the hunt for a pair to wear on the slippy wooden flooring in your house, in your snowboarding boots, or to keep your toes warm on a wintery dog walk, there are plenty to choose from.

When it comes to wearing boots, like rainboots and wellies for wet, classic British weather, longer thermal socks are great for hooking over the top of your boots, for extra warmth and security against the elements.

Or, there's slipper sock styles with grips on the bottom for wandering around at home without slipping, as well as snug toe-fitted features for extra warmth.

It's easy to feel overwhelmed with so many options, but not to worry, we've rounded up the best thermal socks for women that are available to buy right now. Your toes are welcome.


Best snow sports socks: Women's Merino Ski Socks

For that comfy-but-close fit, ideal for slipping into boots, opt for the Bridgedale Snowflake Merino Endurance socks.

Choose between plum/berry or stone/grey, and enjoy the cosy merino wool-blend from your toes up to your calves.

They offer protection, comfort and insulation with moisture control too, which makes them ideal for snow sports like snow boarding, skiing and the works.

These socks boast medium cushioning and an all-important pressure distribution, as well as a 'Shock Zone' for added comfort when on the slopes all day long.

Hiking socks just got prettier with YUEDGE's lime green, pink and lilac colourways.

Best everyday socks: M&S Light Warmth Thermal Socks

When the temperature drops, there's nothing better than a cosy pair of socks to help you get through the day.

These socks aren't called Danish Endurance for nothing, so you know you're in the right hands when it comes to tackling those wintry hikes.

Developed and recommended by Everest mountaineer Rasmus Kragh, these animal-friendly merino-wool socks have cushioning and padding to reduce blisters and ventilation mesh lanes to wick away sweat.

They also come in a sunny orange shade, who said high-endurance hike-wear had to look boring?

Best chilling-at-home socks: M&S Sumptuously Soft Ankle Socks

Neutral loungewear is trending this season, so we're loving the Sumptuously Soft thermal socks by high street-giant Marks and Spencer.
