Re: Warmest Socks

I personally like Wigwams. Especially the ones with the sewn in liners.

Re: Warmest Socks

I like the merino (sp?) wool right up against the foot. Cotton under wool = cold feet. I think the ones I have are Rocky brand from Wally World but they are really nice and warm.

Re: Warmest Socks

For me it's the Smartwool Mountaineering socks. The hideous red ones with the weird elastic. I found that they are actually too warm. They feel good starting out, but after an hour my feet warm up and start to sweat too much.

Re: Warmest Socks

First, wicking socks, then any good wool sock.

Re: Warmest Socks

I've found the fleece socks are very warm and wick moisture away quickly. Plus ..the seem to be highly durable in the heel and toe areas.

Re: Warmest Socks

I tell ya what fellows. I have bought all different kinds of socks. But what works best for me is the first layer of a wicking sock, and then a pair of battery (D Cell) electric socks.

Yup, I get about one year out of 'em and that's wearing 'em about every other day from the first day of rifle to the last day of fox season.

But my toe's are toasty.....and as long as that happens, I'm warm.

Re: Warmest Socks

Smartwool heavy weight socks are the best I've found to date.

Expensive but worth the shekels.

You mean the Wigwam Ingenius sock? Merino wool with a sewn in olefin liner? That's my go-to cold weather sock.

Eh...wot?

Re: Warmest Socks

I have some decent wool socks, Smartwool knockoffs from Costco, which are a very good value. They are warm when I put them on but they get damp from sweat.

I haven't tried the liner socks. What should you look for in liner socks? A particular type of material? What are good brands & models?
