I have cottons socks for summer use, in winter i use mohair socks, they get softer each wash are super warm wick the sweat and are anti bacterial all naturally. Draw back a good thick set are $40 each for boot socks. If anyone wants more info pm me as not all manufacturers are the same.
I have had two pairs one drying one wearing and was in them hiking each day for 6 months in rough terrain… i still had descent socks when i came home, no foot fungus no rot no blisters. In past i had to do all the things malgus has said and still did not do so well, nothing worst than not being able to walk.
