Excellent socks to compliment plastic boots. They fit the feet well, without bunching and keep them warm and dry. I usually use them in conjuction with a light capilene liner and have never had problems with my feet, even in quite cold conditions.

They're usually more expensive than Thorlo socks, but I find Thorlos to be very similar in quality and function.
