Socks for hot feet

What women ankle socks does everyone recommend for feet that get hot. I was hoping to find a cooling moister wicking sock with no luck.

Thanks for the reminder that I needed to buy new socks! I ordered "Under Armour Women's Essential 2.0 Lightweight No Show Socks, 6-Pairs" from Amazon for under $15. There are over 17,000 reviews.

I have several pairs of the same which I have worn @ three years now while jogging and traveling in both Europe and Costa Rica (hot). While I do not have hot feet, these do not make my feet hot even while working out. I also have Under Armour shirts that truly are moisture wicking. They are a part of my staple outfit to wear on planes.

I like Injinji Toe Socks which wick away sweat and keep my feet dry. Not everyone likes toe socks and they do take some getting used to! My little piggies love them! They have various heights of sock from no-show to crew. I prefer the mini-crew height.

Wright Socks Coolmesh II anti-blister socks.
Weeks in hot, humid SEAsia...for me, these are the answer.

My favorite socks are Balega. They are the most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn, and never make my feet feel hot. They fit very well; not too tight and not to loose.

I’m a huge fan of Wrightsocks Cool Mesh II. I’ve been wearing them for over 15 years, since I did the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. Living in AZ I need everything cool and comfortable. These socks are double layer anti-blister and have a mesh top for ventilation. REI also carries them.

I have "hot feet" too and I rarely ever wear socks, but when I do, I like the Injinji toe socks. Most regular socks constrict my toes. The Injinji are nice and light and don't slip down in my shoes, like many other minimal socks do.

Falke Cool 24/7 ankle socks claim to have a cooling effect, and the one pair I own seems to work. They're not cheap, and they don't hold up all that well based on my limited experience, but they do seem to cool one's feet.

Mardee, I recently discovered Balega socks and am now a total convert! I splurged on a couple of pairs from a local running show store when I bought my most recent sneakers, and then scored several pairs at TJ Maxx and Marshall's!! Still keep my eyes peeled at both of those stores in case I get lucky again.
