Bass Pro has their "TreeStand socks" which are 80% merino wool and their "Extreme socks" which are 80% Merino wool and 10% thinsulate.....I always wear a thermax or polypro liner under them.....stay away from any cotton for cold weather use.......once cotton gets wet, its shot. Wool retains 80% of its warmth even when wet.......:darkbeer:

I just bought some socks on line by an outfit called Covert Threads (use Google). I picked up pair of Ice and a pair of Sand. Very well made but a little pricey, I thought I would try them. My feet always get cold no matter what I wear.

Thanks for the replies, do liners really work and where can I get them?

Covert Thread's have good socks. It allows me to keep my feet warmer 1 hr longer than normal. I have cold feet no matter what. Only thing that really helps is warming packs.

Yes they wick moisture away from your foot, provide another layer of insulation, and if silver lined suppress bacterial growth which is important come the second week of deer camp!

Liners - Fox River X-Static (search on amazingsocks.com website)

Outer sock - Wigwam Canada wool boot sock

And if it's really cold, put a merino wool sock between the two!

Tested and approved in the bitter cold of Michigan's UP!

Liners are available thru Bass Pro, Cabelas, Gander Mtn, Dicks....I like the thermax for colder weather.....dont forget, you still need a good boot, I go 1 size larger than my normal every day shoe size, you dont want them tight on your feet, but not to slip either....the only way is to try the boots with the socks you will be wearing.....:darkbeer:......

I just use Cool Max liners for wicking and let the outer sock do its job. There is not need for "warm or cold" weather liners. If you are overly worried about cold feet in a stationary situation, just get some Arctic Shield boot insulators and smile. Error on the side of a larger size than smaller - 'nuff said.

To Stop your feet from sweating use underarm spray.
To keep your feet toasty, Merino Wool Socks also loose up your boots to allow better circulation while sitting.
