Sewaty feet problems

So it has taken me years, cash and finding a good boot fitter pedorthist to achieve some foot comfort when riding and now I get this. It has happened twice, both times where highest vertical feet, distance and time. My feet are getting sweaty and causing my foot to slip inside the sock and boot. This sliding is causing irritation/burning specifically on my front foot big toe pad/callous. My pedorthist recommended thin socks to combat cold feet and that worked like a dream. I'm wondering though if I should move to a thicker sock or even a sock liner to allow for greater absorbtion. Anybody have/had this issue? Any advice how to fix? It pisses me off to no end that my legs are carrying me longer and farther, but now I'm getting held back by this. I accept that I'm a sweaty bastard but this is really becoming a problem.

You're wearing some sort of smartwool athletic socks, right? No need for thick socks, thin is good, and wicking material is good. My feet sweat some days too...

Maybe bring a couple pairs and change socks at lunch?!?

Yes on the smartwool, was thinking the same thing on multiple pairs, just figured I'd check the alternatives

try and find a super-thin liner sock made from silk or polypro to wear inside your smartwools first.

dress socks can work well. the liner helps more with wicking and also helps a ton with the slipping.

the other thing is if you're on the end of the size range, size down... IE;


ADULT SOCKS (shoe size reference)
Sizes US Men US Women Euro UK
Small 3-5.5 4-6.5 34-37 2-4.5
Medium 6-8.5 7-9.5 38-41 5-7.5
Large 9-11.5 10-12.5 42-45 8-10.5
X Large 12-14.5 N/A 46-49 11-13.5

if you're a size 9/9.5/10 get mediums

another trick for hotspots and blisters is duct tape or moleskin on your skin covering the affected area

yes...wicking liners and thin phd smartwool socks. I'd rather have my foot slip due to liners than to rub and get blisters. However foot doesn't slip when the boot inner laces are locked down.

I'm with you on the blisters' I have a set of liners I got as a gift so will definitely try them on my Spring Break trip.
Locking down the inner boot is still more art than science for me when balancing numbness and response, getting it down though. Really hope Salomon starts making the synapse wide in a boa next year
Thanks

only thing with liners is that they act as a stench sieve
