It is essential that you wear red socks. Got to keep the traditions alive otherwise the internet will kill everything with every Tom, Dick or Harriet throwing in their tuppences.
I agree and am quite upset with my bridgedale summits (which I recommend to the OP for winter,) which are both left...
In fact all my bridgedale socks are left footed. Someone must have a similar number of rights to swap?
Where ca nyou buty those red socks and what are those long shorts called that you should wear with them?
Super thick Thorlo ones on the inside, and something slightly less thick over the top of those. After two days (maybe one) the inside socks become the outside socks and a fresh pair of big thick ones go inside.
Thicker than most people wear, but it works for me. Nice and toasty too. No cold feet for me, or bruised toes, or blisters.
The smartwool ones (flecks of red) aren't nearly as good as the Thorlo (cream with grey).
I have volume reducers under the insole too.

sounds like your boots are too big in the first place :-).

You'd be surprised, some people actually return bridgedale socks stating that they're both for their left feet!
