Shortcake Jr. might look adorable but don't let that fool you. She can shred with the grown ups all day. A layer of cushioning along the bottom of the foot adds extra support and comfort. Over-the-Calf height is ideal for skiing and riding in deep conditions while fine gauge Merino Wool provides legendary warmth without the bulk. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
