One of PSIA-AASI’s newest Official Suppliers, Lorpen, is a brand nestled in the Spanish Pyrenees that, for more than 30 years, has manufactured just one single product – innovative technical socks.
Lorpen uses advanced sock manufacturing techniques in their designs, applying feedback and the expertise of professional skiers, climbers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts to advance every generation of socks produced. It’s with that feedback that the company creates some of the most respected and well-made socks on the market. Lorpen's innovate techniques include selective layering of fibers, targeted cushioning, venting zones, and advanced anatomical fitting.
Lorpen is committed to preserving the environment in every aspect of their business. This means that, whenever possible, they work with fibers sourced from sustainable and manageable resources. They develop manufacturing processes that are sensitive to the environment and reduce the amount of post-production waste at all levels.

T3 Ski Light Sock: This sock features the drying, wicking, and comfort qualities of merino wool and PrimaLoft yarn, but also features unique T3 construction with sole and shin padding for protection and warmth. This is a fantastic sock for skiers who need warmth, padding, and dryness on the slopes.
T3 Women’s Ski Light Sock: This sock also features Lorpen’s unique T3 construction with maximum sole and shin padding for protection and warmth. The combination of merino wool and PrimaLoft Yarn results in faster drying and wicking than just merino wool alone, while still maintaining a comfortable feel against the skin.
