Gordini, a leader in cold-weather gear innovation for more than 65 years, announces its Winhall ski sock, part of the brand’s new performance sock collection, has won an ISPO Award 2023. The ISPO Awards honor the most innovative products and services in the sports industry and offers brands, consumers and retailers an overview of the most exciting products the sports world currently has to offer.
Gordini’s Winhall mid-weight ski sock for men and women features its SoleKNIT™ dual layer construction and OrbitKNIT™ ribbing technology. SoleKNIT technology is the merging of multiple layers into a single knit, combining a soft, next-to-skin interior with a strong, durable exterior. OrbitKNIT is a true rib technology that helps socks stay put without compression, discomfort or unpleasant sock marks. Both exclusive technologies are created via an Italian knitting process that allows for strategic placement of yarns for dynamic performance and comfort.
The ISPO Awards international jury of experts stated, “This high-tech sock makes visible how advanced knitting technology is today. A two-layer sock that combines thermal performance, comfort and high durability and mimics heat trapping of quilt insulation jackets is impressive.”
The ISPO Awards’ expert jury is made up of industry professionals and enthusiastic athletes from the ISPO Collaborators Club. Gordini will receive its award at ISPO Munich November 28.
Gordini’s sock collection offers four ski and four hiking socks for men and women in varying weights, ranging from the Sterling, a heavyweight, over-the-calf ski sock, to the Eden lightweight hike crew sock, and the ultralight Ripton ski sock. Other design features in the collection include padded shin panels, ankle protection, instep compression for increased circulation, bolstered arch support to prevent foot fatigue, secure heel pockets for frictionless fit, and a full terry cushion throughout the sock.
