    Question Favorite socks

    A recent thread about hot weather clothing got me thinking about socks. I loaded up the pack and tried out a pair of Elder Merino Wool performance socks yesterday, they seemed to do pretty good on a short (3 mile) up and down hike.

    What are you long walkers wearing?

    for me the best combo I have found for my feet are the BPS blue polypropylene liners with the BPS day hiker wool socks.

    I have tried a few other liners and other wool socks, but for some reason these ones just seem to fit well and do what they are suppose to on my feet.

    I just started wearing merino wool socks, and they seem to be a lot better than anything I have wore before.

    I wear the Smartwool light hikers, I believe they are 76% merino wool. They are the most comfortable socks I think I've ever worn.

    Thanks for the input! It looks like I have a few more to try. I have been wearing wool socks since the '60s when all I could find were military surplus, I sure wish Merino would have been around then!
