Before I go and spend 10 bucks for a pair of socks I was wondering what is a good boot sock? What brand do you prefer?

dude young said:+1 I have the Cabela's Deluxe Cold Weather sock, probably 20 pair. They are the best sock I have ever had on my feet, period. I could wear them ice fishing, hunting, working (surveying) hiking, lounging. They are tall, up to your knee, with good elastic, so you never get a boot-full of sock. And when you pull them up over long-johns, they will stay up for a decade. They also have a wader version that comes about up to your chin. Great in hiking boots, hunting boots, waders, rubber boots, and sneakers. Just great. But a pair. If you don't like 'em, I will buy them from you (so long as you don't fill them with toe cheese). Which reminds me, I get the cheese, but not with these socks. They wick pretty darn good.

TTFishon said:Wow! Spendy sock. Thanks for the link.
dude young said:Yeah, but, I have had some pairs for close to 10 years. In my line of work and play, and living in Northern New England, I tried EVERY brand of sock mentioned above, and then some. I don't have any wigwams left, and all the others have been relegated to protecting my flocked goose deek heads. They work GREAT for that.
Like I said, you don't like 'em, and I'll buy 'em from ya.
