Amen to that. I was using any snowboarding sock I could get my hands on. Burton or some obscure brand. I picked up Under Armour socks and they are much better. My feet are happy. Next up, Smart Wool socks. Smart Wool is so underrated.

hell ya smart wool all the way. last year i bought a pair and i will never give them up, They breath nicely as well ass keep you super warm. They never bunch up or feel uncomfortable. They also have extra padding along the whole shin...super duper comfortable. i think they were about 30 bucks but def worth it.

Nothing but love for my Smartwool PHDs.

I've used Thorlos (too damn thick for me - and, as someone mentioned, just because the company says they are snowboarding socks doesn't make them snowboarding socks) and the previous generations of Smartwool snowboard socks and the PHDs have blown me away.

Supportive in all the right places and at the end of the day the best thing I can say about them is that I never gave them a thought.

About $18/pair at Campmor.

Default Updating the Injinji's

The link is here.

For the record, they kept my feet very warm over the long weekend. These totally rock and are replacing my SmartWools for snowboarding. They're so good, I'm tempted to wear them daily.

curious as to how these are better than normal socks? I have somewhat wide feet and all of a sudden I am having some pain in my toes and side of my feet, want to play with some new socks and see if they help.

Basically, they allow for your foot width. Socks are made with one width of foot in mind. Consequently, those with wide (and probably narrow...don't know for sure on that) feet suffer. The socks ride up on us and don't readjust. Our toes get cramped and pulled in by the sock. Circulation is reduced.

Toe socks are held in place. Another neat thing...these socks have sizes. One size really never fits all. But, the truth is in the wearing. Lots of things can cause foot pain. I've had real good luck with toe socks. I wear them anytime I wear socks. They rock.

These are compression...that's even better. I've used SmartWool. They're fine. These are better. But, like all things, it's an individual thing. Buy them. You may be very happy. At worst, they'll be good.

Thanks, I really am tempted to try them. I have large feet (float between 14 and 15), but my boots are 13s. I think one of the problems I am having is my socks stretching and pulling on my toes.
