Darn Tough and Smart Wool.

I like the Darn Tough hunters a bit more, but Smart Wool makes thicker (warmer) versions.

I have bought few brands and I think the darn tough cushioned socks are the best I have felt yet. https://www.rei.com/product/825037/d...ing-socks-mens

Heat Holders makes a good one, ( heavyweight ) but they are Thick and may be tight with your current boots.
Also Wigwam.

Thanks all.
I decided to go with the Darn Tough Men's Hunter Boot Sock Full Cushion.

Point 6 are on sale now.
Point 6 is owned by the founders of smart wool.
Goal was to produce better wool products.

I always have terrible cold feet but that is because they get sweaty then are wet all day. This year I am going to try some sock liners under my socks. Also picked up a pair or Darn Tough to try if the liner route doesn’t work out.

Costco sells a 6 pack of heavy merino socks for $17. I just spent a week in them and they were great.

If it's cold I wear poly liner under wool/poly sock. Darm Tough or Wigwam both have good socks.
