    Like most people, your sock drawer is probably crowded full of a wide variety of styles and colors of cotton socks. And a quality winter sock is nowhere to be found except for perhaps lost somewhere in your basement among old and rusting ski gear.

    This is most unfortunate since wearing cotton socks in winter weather, particularly if you engage in strenuous activities, is a recipe for cold feet and frostbitten toes regardless of how fancy your winter boot might be. The reason? Simple. Wearing cotton socks during winter weather has the real potential to make your foot colder than if you wore no sock at all. How is this so?

    Cotton Socks - Just Say No
    The reason cotton socks are absolutely terrible choices for winter weather is because they have little insulation value and because they absorb and hold moisture. Worse yet, once a cotton sock is wet, it loses all insulation value. Even worse, a wet cotton sock then begins to coat your foot with a nice film of perspiration (which is water, remember?).

    The end result of wearing cotton socks during the winter is that as your foot perspires the sock absorbs the moisture and then holds it, thereby coating your foot with a slick film of water while losing all insulation value in the process. And since a wet foot is a recipe for a cold foot, only if you really enjoy cold, wet, slimy feet should you ever consider wearing a cotton sock when engaging in outdoor winter activities.

    Importance of Winter Socks
    Because of the nasty effects of wearing cotton socks during the winter, if you spend much time outdoors in winter weather or participate in strenuous activities, a quality winter sock should be worn. The importance of wearing the right sock in winter weather cannot be understated. Wearing the latest, greatest and most expensive winter boot will do little to combat cold feet if you are wearing cotton socks.

    Remember, in cold weather, particularly if you engage in strenuous activities, avoid any socks that has any cotton content in it. Your foot will be thankful to you for it.

    The Sock Liner
    The sock liner is probably the most forgotten about asset in keeping your feet dry, and thus warm, in cold weather. A sock liner pulls double duty, both by adding in a bit extra insulation value and, far more importantly, by transferring perspiration from the foot directly to the sock that the person wears. In essence, a sock liner takes the water off your foot and moves it to the sock, with the sock liner itself remaining perfectly dry (due to the construction of these types of socks). Because of this transfer of moisture, your feet remain perfectly dry (even during periods of great exertion), thus greatly increasing the probability of keeping your feet warm.

    Thus, if you spend lots of time doing strenuous activities during the winter months, consider investing in a few pairs of sock liners. You'll be amazed at how effective these thin little socks are in keeping your foot dry and warm.

    Sock liners, being the forgotten step-child that they are, aren’t the easiest to find anymore. When wool socks were popular, sock liners were more easily found since people often used them to protect against that “itchy, scratchy feeling” that wool socks caused. But with the arrival of more comfortable socks, sock liners have sort of gone out of style.

    It seems so simple, however many of us are in the wrong socks during these winter months. Cotton socks (which are great in summer time) are unfortunately not helpful for retaining heat, resulting in icy toes. Synthetic fibres such as those used in stocking socks also provide no insulation for your skin leaving them feeling bare and cold.

    I recommend you purchase socks that contain a high percentage of wool which assists in heat retention. Specifically, merino wool socks are fantastic.

    When selecting socks, ensure they are the appropriate thickness. Socks that are too thick may restrict blood flow when in enclosed footwear and make the problem worse. Merino wool socks can be purchased in different thicknesses enabling you to wear them under winter boots and work footwear.

    Here are some tips to find the type of socks that will keep your feet the warmest:

    • Skip cotton, try wool: Cotton may feel great for your bedding, but when it comes to warm socks, 100% cotton is best to avoid. Cotton holds onto moisture and can make your feet feel wet inside winter boots. Instead, look for socks made from wool, which is great at insulating heat while keeping feet dry.

    • Thicker ≠ Warmer: Super thick socks may look like the coziest option, but if they are too thick, they can cause blisters or cut off proper circulation in big boots.

    The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab researched tons of socks to find the best warm socks to keep your toes toasty, whether you’re hiking, skiing, or building a snowman.
