I bought a bunch of pairs of Smartwool boarding socks on SAC for something like $6 a pair. Best socks for boarding ever.

i just got a pair of 32 socks... the ones with Merino wool, 'feather hi' i think they are called. i also own 2 pair of burton, and the 32 socks are insanely better.. although the burtons are 2 and 3 years old so maybe they have gotten better, but i would highly recommend 32 socks.

Had some Kombi socks which worked fine...except for the elastic "arch support" (what a joke that is in socks). It was terrible. Fuck elastane.

Nike Dri-Fit soccer socks work. Didn't expect any warmth out of them, didn't get any, didn't need any.

Now using some FoxRiver WickDry socks.

I bought 6 pairs of "Hot Chilis" snowboarding socks off ebay for something like $15 last year, They are really good socks.
