Born out of mateship, the two co-founders Simon and Anthony grew up next door to each other and have a combined love of alpine sports and a wealth of experience achieved over a decade of professional ski boot fitting and ski bummery.
Le Bent originally launched to market with the first technical snow sock that successfully combined “unrivalled comfort, performance and fit.”
“Our ambition is to inspire good times and adventure in the products we make and lifestyles we lead. We create products we use ourselves and these products enable our global tribe to lose themselves in their outdoor experiences.” - The Founders
Today, we craft intelligently designed technical first on skin layers (socks, base layers and accessories) blurring the lines between luxurious comfort, performance and style.
Le Bent’s commitment to performance, unrivalled comfort and sustainability are inspired by nature, visible across all of its merino-based lines that are built for the adventurer’s lifestyle: whether that be snow, trail run, mountain bike or anything in between.
