I like the muck boots in theory but how do you guys keep your socks up when wearing those boots? I can put them on walk down to the barn 100 yards and have to pull my socks up from my toes. Socks are still stretchy and cling to my feet.

I used to wear the tingley overboots but don't need them often enough so they dry rot before I get good use out of them.

I wear Carhartt 'copper ion" socks. Pricey, but get WAY better mileage out of them so it probably works out.

Very warm, wicks the moisture away from your feet, stays up. A lot less problem with dry skin and callouses on my feet too.

I think part of the problem with socks creeping down is wearing boots that are too big.

I'm on my second pair of Muck boots, (first lasted 6 years that I remember, maybe more) and haven't noticed any difference in the new pair. Toasty warm, light, comfortable

I hear you on the sock deal. I wore them style boots when I was younger but switched to 5 buckle overshoes as I got older. My wife still wears them but she just sticks her bare feet in 99% of the time. Gotta be below zero before she wears socks in her boots.

I usually wear a pair of regular socks and put the big wool ones on over those - don't know if that makes much of a difference, but I never have the falling sock problem. the wool socks I use are also really long - come almost up as high as the boot. They always stay up for me like they're a part of the boot.

I find it's very comfortable. Not just temperature wise - but the socks provide a good amount of cushion.

I do know what you mean though - smaller loose socks will do it - and it's a real pain.

Of course - it's also getting very hard to find those big thick wool socks.

Only way I can keep'em up is pull them up over my long underwear. Warm weather,no long underwear,my socks are down around my toes in no time.
Need to grow a little more hair on my legs maybe?
