but wool?? really Clarity? are they flowey/cool enough?
I wore this type of sock with all leather combat boots for 9 years in all kinds of conditions. I find them better than cotton which tend to fall apart, or fall loose inside the boot, which really sucks! Plus they have a padded sole in addition to the reinforced toe.
Never thought I'd be so nastalgic for socks!
Wool breathes better than you'd think.
Witness the resurgent success of SmartWool socks for hikers.
That said, I still prefer ThorLo's, but have nothing against SmartWool, for those that go that route.
There are a variety of boot socks on the market geared for hot weather climates, as well, including some by ThorLo, UnderArmour, Bates, etc.
