I was hiking yesterday with 70lbs over three miles and my left foot started burning, it was the one with just the wool sock. (The right foot had a cotton sock (yeah, I know) between the wool and my foot. My right foot is somewhat smaller than my left.) The left foot with just the wool sock was promptly blistered.
My question is: is there a sock which is softer and more forgiving on the feet? And is there a balm or creme for feet which are burning in the boots? --Preferably scent free.
I'd consider bringing some in the mtns.
Thanks for any insights....
