Socks for Waders

What type socks do you all recommend for waders? I thought I had a hole in my waders because my socks were wet. I do not use waders often and do not recall my socks getting wet.

If it's cold I wear good wool socks. Sometimes I wear a liner sock. I've worn wool socks when the water temp did not justify and they were damp from sweat.

In Alaska I wore a liner and wool. The liner wicks away sweat and keeps the feet dry. This is why they don’t get cold

Wear a goretex sock over your insulating sock whichever weight for the conditions. This will allow moisture to wick out but not back into your sock. If you are wearing boot foot waders there is nowhere for the moisture to wick and it gets absorbed into your sock, and neoprene stocking foot are moisture prone as well. The goretex sock is the only thing that keeps your foot dry.

I use wool socks when it's cold,and if it's really cold I'll use a hand warmer on the top of my toes but my best bet against cold sweaty feet during a winter wade is a boot that's about 2 sizes too big and that has a solid bottom that doesn't collapse under the pressure of mud and water.Good circulation and no cotton is the key

My favorite is wool liner and wool sock. Fits Socks is my new favorite brand.. better loft than Smartwool. they're not cheap but I'm finding that keeping my feet warm is worth it. They are holding up well so far so the extra expense seems to be justified.

I never knew about using liner socks until reading this thread. Then I did some research on liner socks and learned more. And now I've learned about FITS socks. Nice socks are the bomb. I'm going to try a pair.

Smartwool gets the job done for me. Like others have mentioned, if it's really cold I'l use a liner.

I have always used polypropylene. It is a lot less money than wool, is just as good of an insulator, is as effective at wicking away moisture and can be found in multiple thicknesses. I have 2 pairs of 4-ply for the winter and two pairs of 2-ply for fall and spring. I wear the 4-ply inside my wading boots when I wade wet. You can find them in the hiking footwear department of any store that carries good outdoor gear.

Their only downside is they tend to hold smell more than wool. But it has never been something that a good detergent won't remove.
