    I'm a big fan of smartwool dress and hiking socks.

    I wear Goldtoe Uptown Crew socks. They're mostly cotton. I find the best deals on them at Kohls. Amazon has them for $17 for a 3-pack which is OK but not a great price.

    A vast majority of shoes are only comfortable for me with a cushioned sock, which is unfortunate as most good looking socks are thin.

    What are cushioned socks like? I'm asking for thick socks because my shoes are a little big on my feet, but the next size down are too tight... So I need some sort of extra padding to fill the extra room.

    Why not use any run of the mill "sweat sock" and then pull a very thin dress sock over that.

    Their Winter Weight socks Over The Calf are very nice indeed.

    Do you wear those in the summer? Are they super hot?

    I just visit Weinburg's Hosiery. Find a local place, and buy there on the cheap.

    I actually have merino wool OTC sock for sale..........I have a 3-pack of Polo and I have a few argyle pairs of Venanzi. Both are heavier weight.

    I will be listing in B&S soon but wanted to let you guys know here first.

    When I described the Gold Toe Uptown Crew socks as "cushioned" I just mean they have the thickness in range of an athletic tube sock which cushions the foot. However, these Gold Toes have a smoother texture and look much more refined than an ugly athetic sock. They're still a good bit frumpier than the nice dress socks people tend to sport on this forum, but they're not awful. Sometimes I think they kinda fit into the trad aesthetic, which makes me feel better about them.

    Docker's "Sport Crew" Socks might fit the bill... I typically wear 'em with boots, but won't hesitate to wear them with shoes in colder weather. They're definitely thicker than dress socks, and the colors aren't too bad: I especially like the the "Dark Marled" mix-pack, the black is good too.
