/ Thin Woolen Socks
I've used woolen ski socks before and they tick the boxes, but wear out extremely quickly compared to walking socks.
The ideal socks would be a little thicker than a liner sock; similar to the hardwearing boot socks usually labled as "work socks" or similar, but woolen rather than cotton blend.
Are you sure they will be warm enough with thinner socks?
I guess that wasn't the question I asked. I can't imagine my feet being warm enough in anything but thick 4 season mountaineering socks, but your feet ain't mine! BTW I have the freneys which also have primaloft insulation.
Smartwool do a full range of socks, if you want lower bulk then you probably want the mid crew ones although these are still quite bulky. The light crew are what I use for most summer walking!
I'm in the process of changing the insoles and trying to get the leather to 'relax' out of the shape of the previous owners foot, hopefully i'll claw back enough space to fit my normal socks.
