socks for boots. Smartwool?

Just bought a pair of GTs online and now I need some boot socks. I need something that will wick away moisture like a smartwool sock, but is not too thick (gets too hot indoors) or as thin as a dress sock I wear with dress shoes (would cause blisters in boots). Smartwool is confusing because there are so many types and I don't really have any experience with them.

Any suggestions for specific models of socks would be appreciated.

Smartwool is great- their dressier socks are thinner. Mind you, if it's 80 degrees out they'll still be warm.

I spent 5 days tramping all around Amsterdam wearing smartwool daily. Loved them.

Smartwool are great, and you can pick them up pretty cheaply on STP.

On the Smartwool website you can browse their product catalog, sorted by amount of cushion, which I found invaluable in finding the socks I wanted.

I also like Wigwam socks, though I'm only familiar with their Comfort Hikers. I wear them hiking (of course) and sometimes casually with desert boots (makes the lack of arch support in the deserts less of an issue, too).
