I use a soak boot for everything, as you, I have little to no patience for bucket soaking.....A soak boot is the best $40 I've ever spent.
I use a davis boot usually but to answer the sock question. I use that to cover the hoofwall so the solution will lay on the wall as well as the sole when I am soaking for abscesses.. If the soaking boot keeps the liquid where you want it you may not need to use that. With the wet sock I feel the solution is going to stay in the boot a bit better as the horse moves around.. I will add more ACV now and then if I am soaking for a while.
