Default Best snowboard socks?

Lately my boots are bundling my socks underneath my heel. Anybody have a pair of snowboarding socks they love?

What size is your foot and what size sock are you using.
If you getting your sock all bundled up as you put your foot into your boot. Almost sounds like your socks are to big. Have you thought of sizing down your socks

I buy Med as I'm on the bubble of Lrg/Med and the Med stay more snug and I just like the fit better of Med than a looser fitting large.

Just a thought

No the inside of my liner (salomon malamutes) has a material to help hold your heel down and works more at slowly sliding my sock down. I typically wear rei wool socks, dakine free ride, a random burton pair that has worn a hole in the heel. I was just curious if anybody had a snowboard specific wool sock that they swear by. I think my liners are a bit packed out also which could be my problem, but this has been going on for a while.

if you're talking about bc touring then yes. the smrtwl phds i use are the ski or snowboard socks so they're knee height... if we're talking about backpacking/fishing hiking; i pretty much only wear merino wool socks year-round, but more of a normal height sock. i have a bunch of pairs if smartwools that tend to be thinner and lighter than the rei merinos (got a bunch of those too) and some wigwams and random brands i've got.

so for snowboarding i use ski/snowboard socks, for everything else i use "hiker" length but in different thicknesses for different shit; but pretty much all of them are merino wool.

Thanks. Yeah I was referring to the BC. Gonna get a couple pairs today. So you size down, but with an 11.5 foot, do you think the md (6-8.5) would cause discomfort? Tightness around the toes?
