Looks like Darn Tough should sponsor some disc golfers! I literally wear no other brand of socks but Darn Tough. Have had to send a few pairs back, but they have a no questions asked lifetime warranty, so once they receive the socks they send you a voucher to order a new pair online. So rad! Can't believe I EVER wore cotton socks.

Wool is inherently much better at temperature/moisture regulation. They'll keep your feet warm when it's cold and cool when it's warm. Because they're a wool blend, they tend to mix the best properties of wool and synthetic knits, which "just work" to keep everything regulated. They actively work to wick moisture from inside your sock to the outside, which helps them dry very quickly when they get wet (from outside moisture or sweaty feet) They're truly year round socks. They offer many cushion thickness options, as well as lots of different length options. Finally, as I mentioned above, they have a lifetime guarantee. All love from me!

I don't always understand the dislike for waterproof shoes. I've worn North Face, Adidas, and now Skechers waterproof shoes as my wear everyday, everywhere shoes for years now. I don't even really notice a difference. Other than my feet are always dry. Which is nice.

I tried that. Afterward, I could not tell if the bags failed or my feet sweat, but socks were still wet. The bonus was the unusual sensation of poor footing from within the shoe.

Wool socks get do wet, but also get dry. That’s what I wear now.

+1 but for Merino wool specifically. Amazing type.

Also would recommend Merrell waterproof shoes, but can see it being too heavy for some people. I have a pair ONLY for DG and take them off the minute I get back to the car. Does wonders for lifespan.
