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
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
REI Recycled Polyester Liner Socks
Ripped easily. Comfortable but of questionable quality. I bought two pairs of these socks in Navy. I almost always buy Smartwool liners but was in REI thought I would give these a shot. I took a pair out of the pocket they were in and they had a hole just from the packaging. They staple them in to a piece of cardboard which I am sure does not help. I will take those back on another REI trip. Second pair seems to be holding up but I definitely feel the difference between polyester and wool on… Full review
Smartwool Hiking Liner Crew Sock
Sometime it is hard to get excited about socks, but these are a different story. Save your feet, buy them. I have a couple of pairs of these and have worn them on numerous hikes. After numerous wears and washes they still fit well and have not lost elasticity at the top. You do not notice these much when you throw your regular socks over them and put them into your boots. Light, thin and they don't make your feet sweat. I did one hike without them, foolishly, and sure enough blisters on both… 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 trialled many makes and models of liner socks and so far this model is not bumped from the top. Plus's - odor control - fit and stability - ease of washing and quick drying at camp / in tent / over night - good at moisture transfer - comfortable and no blisters even if soaked wet Minus's - they do eventually wear out (ah, that is a little humor) - the odor control and the… 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
