    Socks for Wellingtons

    I am looking for welly boot socks in a fine material for the summer. Need to wear the wellies due to lots of standing water but would like to find some thinner type of fine knits.

    Anybody got ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    if you want a full length sock id go for a silk sock, nice and thin, its what i wear in my ski boots, i personally just wear standard socks in my wellys in summer and tuck my trousers into them

    I know this sounds bizarre but I always wear either my Sealskinz merino wool socks. If not sports socks with my Le Chameux fleece welly inserts. Always a warm and comfortable and never sweaty.

    Go commando!

    Actually I just use ordinary socks in the summer too.

    with wellies you really need two pairs of socks
    to reduce any friction on your heels.
    two pairs of long cotton in summer
    wool in winter.

    Agreed

    Being on a farm, I live in my wellies and used to get through a pair of socks a week in terms of holes

    Wearing two pairs cuts down on skin rub and minimises the wear on the socks too

    +1 Woolen next to your skin, HJ indestructables to take the friction on the back of the heel.
