Finally, a brand. Thank you. I may have seen this brand at Farm and Home getting dog food this evening.

Liners may help (like for hiking). Keeps the layer contacting your skin very thin. Also, dumb as it sounds, a quality antiperspirant might help.

Several changes of socks may work, but that's inconvenient I know.

You're welcome, although several other brands were listed before my post.

I prefer toe socks and can’t find actual wool, only synthetic wool. No room in my shoes for thick wool socks. I’m hoping there exists a fantastic and well tested wicking sock. Though many socks are marketed that way.

Waterproof boots make my feet sweat, so they will be as wet as if I had worn vented summer shoes.
I have always worn waterproof footwear. But a discin bud of mine bought some waterproof socks and swears by them. Might be worth checking into. I think they can be a bit pricey but maybe worth it.

The best pair of shoes and socks is an EXTRA pair of shoes and socks. As long as my shoes are weather appropriate I just go in and accept getting wet and playing in it and being used to it. Dry shoes and socks for the second go around is the way to go.

You are correct. Somehow I missed this post, my apologies!

Quality wool socks cost moar than cotton or polyester. You get what you pay for.

Only brand of socks I have bought over the last many, many years. Can't vouch for how they are in the winter since I do not play till it warms up, but I have used them in Gortex socks and they are very good.

Darn Tough are nice but Smartwool makes socks in many different thicknesses. today I stood outside with kids at school and the temp was 0-18F. a half hour of standing in Soloman boots and not an issue. walking the dog even less so. I will take great socks and mediocre shoes over mediocre socks and great shoes ANY day as well.

and yes, I work at a school where we take kids out EVERY fricking day.
