    An old guy told me a good trick to stop that problem - put on some thin dress type socks first before putting the Norsewear socks on, it works!

    I only wear Bridgedale full stop now.
    I bought 4 pairs, 4 years ago and wear them for everything, in work boots all day and outside of work. Only now they’ve just started to let go along the stitch line along the top of the toes.
    I really rate the sock liners when out in the hills.

    was wearing NZDF issue army socks for ages, then had "the ultimate boot sock" which was good but the top of them is lose now.
    Brought Bridgedale heavyweight merino socks - real happy with them, really comfortable and no hot spots at the end of the day

    Got gifted a pair of Icebreaker socks from torpedo7, lifetime warranty! Get a hole in them and take them back. Have been wearing them for work and hunting to get that hole...

    Smartwool. Great boot socks and their sport range is epic too. They don’t smell after days of use and I’ve never had a blister in them. Family friend runs ultra marathons and swears by them.
