REI hiking/hunting smart wool blend athletic socks. Expensive, last for years and worth every penny. I'm wearing a pair now.

silk thin liners a wool sock not to thick or too tight a boot.

Most feet sweat bad and thats why they get cold put a little antipersprant on them.

These are the best socks Ive ever worn for cold weather. They dont have much elastic, and are a bear to get off after a ling day, but well worth it on cold wet days.

Oh and put on a pair of knee high panty hose before your socks if it is very cold- they also make moisture wicking socks that look like panty hose but they cost alot more. It makes all the difference in the world.

Polypropylene liners, Wigwam wool socks over them. Trust me, I'm a Yankee and hate cold feet. I've spent entire winters with numb toes till I found what worked.

Silk socks or knee high panty hose with wool socks
Make sure your boots not too tight.

Never considered panty hose as a liner. I hate to ask but where do you get the panty hose?

I second the sock liners. I've worn them with the Smartwool socks when elk hunting, not for cold but to wick moisture away from my feet and prevent blisters on my heels. They definitely work. Gel heel inserts are the 3d thing to make the long days hiking through the forests more fun.
