This is an each to there own thing i reckon. After a bit of time served you find something that works. Me personally i have to wear bridgedale liners, thick desert socks and lowas. Can you imagine cutting around afghan in the summer like that. Feet stank but blistered none!
As an aside, does anyone know if the stores provide an alternate sock for those who suffer from allergies? I suffer from sores on my legs caused by these new black socks, made worse by boots being tightened over them and the fact my feet sweat more than with the old green ones. (I appreciate that socks are easy to come by when paid for myself, I just prefer freebies. I'm tight like that.)
