I do, in fact. Haven't worn them riding in many years.

But most people do wear socks, you only need one thin pair at the most, and avoid cotton unless you want to be miserable.

The liner is...

Taos the town is very much a live and let live sort of place, it's a very nonconformist sort of place, and I like it. That said the historic stuff downtown and around the pueblo is very much worth...

Shop guy told me that standard dress socks work just fine. No real need for snowboard-specific socks. I'd avoid thick ones, though, they do influence the fit of the boot, and at most, one thin pair...

"barefoot-compatible" liners?

I'm looking to purchase a new pair, after about 5 years in my previous pair of boots (32s).

Of course, I want something that fits well, is semi-stiff, warm, functional, and I'll try on a few...

Tough question.

I'd probably choose to split my time between LA and probably some dusty Eastern Sierra town like Bishop.

I live in the southern Rockies now, and also really like it. Currently...

I have several pairs of Burton socks. But, I strongly prefer rocking no socks at all, haven't worn socks riding since 2010, in fact. Good fit, warm feet in general, and no trouble with bunching socks...

My old 32 Lashed came without footbeds, and I did the heat mold without them. They fit just fine, have pretty distinct footprints from my toes and such. The models since about 2008? 2009? do have...

I just put the liners over the heater in the hotel, or if I'm in a pinch, the floor vent in the car. One other cheap option is to use newspaper to absorb the moisture.

I'd also add that socks can make a difference in boot size as well. I tend to like a tight fit in my boots, so it's the thinnest possible ones. Most of the warmth of the boot is in the liner, it's...

I'm not sure that thick socks will make you warmer, I thought that the general recommendation is one pair of thin, non-cotton socks.

Personally, I have a couple pairs of thin Burton socks lying...

I try to dry mine quick, so I put them next to the heater, get them dry as fast as possible, then ventilate the room to get the smell out.

Yes, my boots are downright nasty.
