Yea, I know what you mean. I have spent sooo much on snowboard crap this month. I just need to take a trip and go before I spend all my money. Haha.

Don't look at cleansnipe.com either. Makes you buy things you don't need.

In general, I'm also not cold prone. It's funny how a lot of the guys who don't wear socks ever seem to be hockey players. I don't wear socks with my shoes in general either.

But anyways, my boots are a pretty tight fit- basically I can't really wear socks of any thickness in them. The 32's have the full heat moldable liner (before they had footbeds), so they form to my footprint. I don't have any arch issues, thankfully.

And everyone is right about the stench, but whatever.

Not only will your boots stink, but the build-up of sweat and bacteria and skin oil (bacteria is why your boots stink) will wear down the liners and cushion material of your boots faster than they otherwise would.

Nothing wrong with not wearing socks unless you get snow in your boot!

Now this is pretty rare, but unlike what most people say, you don't need to wear socks, IF your boots fit right. There are people who wear two pairs, which is not going to make your feet warmer, in fact, the boots probably don't fit right. And avoid cotton at all costs, barefoot it better than wearing cotton.

Bought 4 pair as a belated birthday gift for myself from backcountry, averaged about $13/pair even with stock being pretty slim pickings right now. Sierra has some wigwams on sale for $4.99 pair right now too.

Unlike most, I can't wear wool. I really like the 32 socks that are made from a bamboo blend. They're great with odor mitigation.

In my opinion, a good pair of socks make a big difference. They will keep your feet cool and dry. I feel way more comfortable boarding with a good pair of socks.
