    What do you like?
    I need to stock up .....
    I want thick as hell.
    Willing to spend a bit more since they get a ton of use.

    Two options: Falke's "Teppich im schuh" models have a very warm terrycloth knit inside, and Scott-Nichol offers superb alpaca-blend boot socks in many colours. These are the best ones I've found for true cold.

    Scott-Nichol are $50. That's a bit hard to justify.
