Does anyone still sell the oldtime Heavy Wool socks that keep your feet warm??? Preferably the USA made heavy ones not Chinese junk...

tough to find. Most say wool yet are only 20%. I go with the 80% wool socks in a muck style boot. Feet rarely get cold.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same

I hate the Wigwam anymore. I am down to the last few pairs of good 100% wool. They don't make a single sock anymore that is better than 80% wool.

I grabbed a pair of Lorpen Cold Weather Sock System a few years ago. As my old wool socks shrink to uselessness I'm converting to these. It consists of a liner sock and a heavier sock. The two together will make my feet hot if it's not too cold. Oh and they are truly over the calf, almost over the knee. Heck, if they were any longer I wouldn't need a base layer. Oh, and I do have a problem with wet feet.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

Try Heat Holder Socks. They are the warmest socks I ever had. Since I had a car accident & got hip bone & 4 screws in my foot, there is nothing that could keep it warm. These socks do.

Bass Pro lifetime socks are 81 percent wool and US made. Plus they replace free if they wear out.

I usually use the Bass pro or Cabela's lifetime wool socks (blend), veryy affordable and have only worn 1 pr out (from wearing around the house/garage with no boots.)

But the best wool (again 80%+), try the Darn Tough brand. They are not cheap but also have a lifetime warranty.

Have worn these with a silk liner for days in below zero weather (January north of Anchorage) and they're fantastic.
