cold feet, feet cold?

About a week ago at the beginning of this frigid Arctic Vortex coming down I decided I would put on a pair of all wool socks I had.
I took off my sweaty cotton socks and my feet have never been warmer. I wear them to sleep at night, when working in the shop or plowing and shoveling snow. They never sweat or get wet. Just passing this along for those with cold feet.

A few years back, I bought a pair of top quality snowmobile boots that almost reach my knees.
Any socks, jump in, toasty warm, any temp below 15F/-10C.
They are great clompy monsters (size 12, too) that make for clumsy driving but that wasn't
in the design concept in the first place.

I have some wool socks I wear when Im gonne be setting in a deer stand. I love em. Wool will still keep you warm if it gets wet. I dont wear them any other time just because they are so bulky.

RRBrown, knottscott and many others were banned, they didn't just leave. They were banned for standing up to the new owners that are destroying this site. Come join us all at woodworking chat, the best new woodworking site on the net!!

If it's cold double boots are the way to go. Whether they're felted wool lined rubber/leather duck boots, mucklucks or something else, double boots always keep your feet warm. A pair of light to mid weight wool socks with some doubleboots and I'm good to well below 0. Coldest I've been outside was -67 F not counting windchill. Double boots and a good down jacket over some wool clothes and all was good.

I agree. I bought some wool lined rubber and leather boots that would normally be to big for my feet but with the wool socks there great! I have a little extra air space around my toes. I use them when I am ice fishing... nice and toasty!

Smart wool is the only way to go! I wear them all the time up here, since its pretty much winter more than it is summer. They are thinner material, fit tighter, and warmer! I was blown away because I had been wearing merino wool socks for years and got tired of them stretching out and wearing holes in them. The wife bought me a pair this past Christmas and I don't even wear my old merino wool socks now. If you wear wool socks a lot, get smart wool.

smart wool?

Ok, I give. Wool from sheep with a higher IQ? Never heard of it, but of course I'm in lower Michigan where it's only winter for 4 months of the year. I'll have to do a search.

All my wool socks are smart wool but they do wear out. I've just bought about 20 pairs in the last year because all my older heavy weight (for heavy duty winter hiking) have holes in them now. Of course, they lasted for many years.
