    Like most things - layers. Three pairs of fine merino socks better than any thick pair.

    Icebreaker or Salomon merino ski socks. I get them from James Leckie of Falkirk for 6 a pair. He does Teko walking socks for 4.50 a bit lighter but just as warm.

    I'd agree with this but use a pair of Bridgedale Coolmax next to the skin, then either one or two pairs of merino on top depending on conditions.

    Oh, and topped off with a pair of Lundhags and you'll have all day comfort and warm dry feet at the end of it.

    If the boots allow, then maybe worth trying a thermal insole. Before/ in addition to socks.

    A German salesman of boots advised me to use 2 pair of socks. As a baselayer he advised Rohner polypropylene socks to keep your feet dry and use a pair of woolen socks over these socks. I certainly will give it a try.
