I struggle with figuring out what I would do for socks in the event that I did a cold winter or snowy/wet/cold hike if a single pair of Injinji's weren't enough.
All year round for me, I just hike in a single, thin pair of the injinji running socks. But most of my hiking is either in the Sierras or Big Sur in the summer or in the local Santa Barbara backcountry in the fall, winter and spring. It just doesn't get cold enough for me to need much in the way of insulation for my feet while I'm moving.
My feet get wet a lot from stream crossings, so I like thin, quick-to-dry socks and I want to stick with the toe socks since these are the first socks I've used that have ENTIRELY eliminated toe blisters for me. Just to add another constraint, I also run really hot, so I don't want too many thick layers, so...
what would you do or recommend for a cold (say low 30s F or colder) sock system that incorporates the injinji socks and that will get wet a lot?
As an aside, someone else asked about the durability of the injinji socks... I too read a lot of the negative reviews about their durability but so far I haven't had any problems. I've been using the same few pairs of socks for all of my hikes for the last 1.5 years now.
