Default Which socks?

Hey guys,

So I have the ThirtyTwo socks that I got last year.
A week ago I also purchased the Nike Vapen boots and I've been wearing them at home from time to time to start the break in process.

While wearing it I realized that the socks felt kinda thick and after a while I was getting sweaty (probably due to home temperature)

I will be riding in the east coast, mostly in catskills or VT so I don't think it'll be really cold, which I don't feel cold easily and even I do, I don't really care, I just keep on riding..

I've been looking at some socks to replace my ThirtyTwo socks. Something thinner maybe, maybe softer.. I saw the PhD merinol wool socks but I wanted to get your opinion too..

So, which socks you think are the most comfortable?

I've tried maybe six different socks and my best experience has been with the Smartwoool pHd snowboarding socks. I really love those socks. I've never been hot, never been cold... So worth the money.

I've got some relatively thin Dakine socks that do the job. Can't find a link though...

Just get a bunch of pairs. After a bit, the heels blow out on all of them anyway.

SmartWool PhD Snowboard Medium Socks - Merino Wool (For Men and Women) - Save 37%

The medium weight work best for me and my boots. I usually buy seconds from Sierra Trading Post (excellent return policy) and see which thickness works best.

Thanks for the link but they don't have my size..

Should I go for medium socks or light socks? I'll be mainly riding in east coast in catskills or vermont so I don't know how thick I need..
