Fox River X-Static Liner

Best liner sock I've used. Although some folks opt not to use sock liners, I have used them for many years (decades). They tend to reduce the likelihood of blisters in various hiking and mountaineering footwear. I've tried many forms over the years, but the X-Statics are my mainstay. They are lightweight, but hold up well, keep foot odor at bay, dry easily, and are pretty inexpensive. Unlike many liners I've tried that tend to slip down and bunch up, these stay in position well.

REI Silk One Liner Sock

This liner sock improved my ability to hike and remain blister-free, as advertised. If you're looking to pair a liner sock with wool socks to reduce friction on your feet and avoid blisters, these will do the trick. If you have ever hiked or walked long distance in regular socks and switched to wool socks, you will understand the "revelation" of how much better your feet felt when making the switch. If you haven't tried liner socks inside your wool socks then you haven't had the second revelation:… Full review

Seirus Neosock

These socks are great when extra warmth and dryness is needed. If you are like me and have made the switch to trail runners from boots and don't ever want to go back these are great. I've been using these on day hikes with my trail runners. It's been in the 40's and they have kept my feet warm and mostly dry. While not 100% waterproof very little moisture has gotten through the seams. I have felt some moisture penetrate the seams, but it is wicked away soon after. I would not wear them alone so… Full review

Injinji Liner Crew Sock

They work well as next-to-skin liners for mountaineering boots. Use them as liners for most of your climbing seasons...just add a mid-weight sock or thick mountaineering sock over them and add good aftermarket foot-beds and you will have dry comfortable feet for the duration of your trip! I use Injinji crew toe socks extensively whenever I go into the mountains. At first I tried Injinji ankle toe socks as that was all I had when they first came out on the market. Used them for trail running and… Full review

Wigwam Gobi Liner Crew

I hate blisters. These liners do an awesome job providing slick surface to rub in my boots besides my heels as well as keeping them dry by wicking away moisture. Nothing ruins a hike faster than a blister. Once the hot spot starts, it is all I am thinking about. After trying most remedies out there, I decided to try these synthetic liners. Wow! They are wonderful. I haven't had any blisters and my feet are not pruney after hiking all day. The liners are made from 100% polypropylene and like silk,… Full review

Injinji Liner Crew Sock

I never thought I could eliminate blisters with such a simple solution. Sock liners are crucial to my foot happiness. If you are going on a distance hike, especially on a hot day, these are a MUST. Full review

Fox River X-Static Liner

A very good sock (liner sock) that is now my only choice as a liner and even sometimes just as a very thin sock. I have tried many makes and models of liner socks and so far this model is not bumped from the top. Yes, I do recommend and would (did) buy again from REI. Full review

Injinji Liner Crew Sock

I've been a fan of liner socks for years to prevent blisters when I hike, but Injinji socks are a game-changer. They are amazing! I got them to wear with my FiveFingers shoes, but now I wear them with all my shoes -- running shoes, boots, everything. I even snuck the black liner socks into my dress shoes for a funeral the other day and I've never been so comfortable in those awful shoes! I'm totally sold. They make my feet so happy! Full review

Warmlite vapor barrier socks

I purchased two pair of Stephenson's Warmlite vapor barrier socks for a winter mountaineering trip. They are very inexpensive, two pair cost less than the next most inexpensive vbl sock. The material has, so far, been durable, and the stitching has held up well. Much more durable than a plastic bag. Also, the material is not a typical laminate; it is softer and easier to wear than normal coated nylon. Seams are a significant issue for vapor barrier socks, which take a great deal of abuse. These… Full review
