I just switched to Icebreakers Merino Wool and they are great. Anything not cotton seems to work for me.

I wear the CEP progression socks. I have 5 pair. I wear them every day and even sleep in them. They help your circulation and are just phenomenal. I have never had any blisters at all and since they are compression socks, they help you go faster (about 2-5%) and they help in recovery.
They work by squeezing the blood vessels that are close to the skin which causes blood to return to the heart more quickly.
I love them. The only downside is that they are expensive. I think they retail for $60.00 a pair, but in my opinion, they are worth it.
I am always the seeker with my socks, I like the smart wool, and cool max. I am now trying X-socks for my long runs, they come with a 2 year guarantee and a serial #. weird, I know. Also trying fox river

What brand sock does the best job keeping your feet dry during runs? I just got some Skecher sorb sock that are suppose to be made with moisture wicking....didn't notice any difference. Thanks for your suggestions.
