Just following up on a deviation in another thread.......
Got my non-waterproof trail shoes as part of a strategy of giving up boots. They were perfect on the Beacons on Saturday - some 14 miles on very mixed terrain. However, the weather was superb and it's very dry up there just now.
My feet get cold when wet as I've found now my Goretex boots leak readily. A poster in the other thread suggested a combination of plastic bags and socks and others dissed waterproof socks. My feet run hot and sweaty especially in Goretex boots (thus my switch of footwear).
What options do I have to keep my feet warm though not necessarily dry? Merino socks? High wicking polyester socks? Brands to choose? Thx.
