Socks

I need some new boot socks super bad. I need thicker socks, that I won't get to hot in. I've heard good things about several brands, but most of them are thin socks. Any personal favorites or tips? I wear a 10 wide, and my calf is 13' to 14' at the widest part of the muscle.

Zocks are what I use, have used them for about 6 years now. I bought 3 pairs and still have them & use them every ride. They are a thin nylon type material but very durable and make your boots slide on & off with ease. They come in really cool patterns and so far no holes even after continuous wear for years. I have had Kerrit boot socks & another type (don't recall the brand), they were no comparison to Zocks for comfort, durability and coolness on your feet.

I second Zocks! They're super comfy and they don't make your feet sweaty (eww) and they come in tons of different patterns too.

Another Zocks fan here. Can't go wrong.

I use zocks on warm days, and if it's colder out I generally wear one of my many many pares of tall socks from Target. While they may not be actual riding socks, they work just as well and they keep my feet just a little warmer than zocks.

Are they thick enough to protect from blisters? I curreently use just some tall socks, but I have to boudle up to prevent blisters. My boots are kinda loose on my feet(I wouldn't trade them for nothing, though) and I get blisters after a whole day of working the white mare, Millie, and Tanna, along with rregular barn work, etc.

the zocks or the tall socks from target? The zocks, ehh, sometimes I get blisters, but that really depends what sort of boot I am wearing. My tall boots (which are big on me) I very rarely get a blister, but my muck boots which fit me fine I will almost always get blisters. If I am wearing the tall socks from target I have yet to get a blister in any boot.

I actually just wear baseball socks. I've worn them on hot days and they don't bother me too much. They're thick enough that I don't get blisters, but I don't really get hot with them either.
