 hiking boots
What kind of socks should I wear with Gore-Tex hiking boots? I have a pair of North Face Gore-tex, high-cut hiking boots and I am wondering what is the best kind of socks to wear with them? I obviously want to maximize breath-ability and minimize blisters etc. I Relevant; I will be hiking mainly around Ontario and parts of British Columbia in spring, summer and fall.

Smartwool.

Any hiking store will have them for around $15 a pair.
They're worth it - in winter, you don't even have to use sock liners.

Darn Tough socks are comparable to Smartwool and they are made in VT.
