Unfortunately, my new mountaineering boots fit my foot great, but are a touch too small for their mountaineering socks (which I love for my plastic Koflachs). Their hiking socks fit fine (plenty of wiggle room), but i would like something a bit warmer than that. I am wondering what other cold weather socks people have had luck with for mountaineering boots, that are a bit smaller than the smartwools. I did a forum search but did not really see anything relevant, though I seem to remember a thread about this several years ago. By the way, I prefer wool over synthetics.
Edit: I also hate wearing liner socks.

Do your feet get all pruned up inside the vapor barrier socks? Seems like I would like my footwear to be breathable, but I've never tried them, so I could very well be wrong.
