It’s Dear Santa time again Snow Kids, so we are counting down 10 great items we want, starting with “I love Lasso compression socks!”
Lasso – the award winning, elite athlete endorsed, TGA approved compression socks, are now available downunder and we want some. Our man in Falls Creek, instructor Trent Abberfield, has been rocking a pair lately and loves them.
Are you heading north for the winter, sick of having to have compression socks for your flight that you carry around and use twice?
Well why not use a sock that has all the compression ability you want for long haul flights that you can ski in too?
LASSO make this innovative sock, I was lucky enough to try these this season at Falls Creek, to say I loved them would be an understatement!
These socks were able to be worn on any terrain I skied on, were comfortable, being quite thin and form fitting, as you would expect from a compression sock.
They were worn on days that were hot and spring like with tops in the low teens and days where is was -3. They did not miss a beat. Worn with Lange LX 120 boots, the Lasso compression socks did not bunch up at all, were not thick like merino socks, and helped reduce fatigue.
I am a Ski Instructor at Falls so I am on my feet for 7 hours a day skiing. These socks are moisture wicking, and have a patented arch support to reduce fatigue.
This I can attest to from my work day experience, the difference between other brands and these was remarkable.
Now you won’t get me out of Lasso socks when I’m on snow.

While new to Australia, Lasso have been big at home in America for a while.
They say “Lasso Socks are the evolution of what a sock can be. By combining cutting-edge ankle support with compression based foot and arch support, Lasso socks reduce muscle fatigue and soreness to help improve performance and recovery for a life in motion.”
The are used by athletes across NFL, NBA and USA Olympic teams if you doubt our Trent’s prowess. Though reality is, the less fit/athletic you are the more you will benefit.
