I've become an ace at battling the heat. I know my limits, utilize a cooling vest and hat, and make sure I stay hydrated.
The problem that I had never been able to solve adequately though was that of hot feet. When my feet get hot, it creates problems with strange tingling, burning, sensations that will segue into a rapidly painful case of nueropathic pain that will bring my hot weather outdoor activities to a screeching halt.
Because I'm outdoors and afield in hot weather, I need to wear good sturdy boots. Regular boots like sturdy hiking boots and protective snake boots are simply too hot to even consider, so I wear military issue desert boots.
But there was this pesky sock issue. My usual hiking socks were just plain too hot, too heavy duty, too miserable.
So, I did what I always do when I have a question about outdoor apparel, gear, or other outdoor needs; I called my friends Jeff and Shelly Ray at HerCamoShop. They know their products, they are quick to help a customer figure out what the best selection would be , and offer a huge selection of gear and clothing at a variety of price points to suit any budget.

I explained my problem, because I have such altered sensation my feet, very similar to those living with diabetes, I needed socks that would be protective of my feet, yet not melt them. HerCamoShop was quick to recommend the WigWam Silver Liner Pro, and were generous enough to send me a pair to try and review.

I donned the socks as soon as they arrived and set out for the dove fields with Willie. We did land training , water training, we hiked along the horse trail and my feet were cool and comfortable. I wasn't getting those little prickly feelings that signal it's time to head back home a ditch my boots. . They were comfortable and sturdy enough enough in my boots to offer protection to my feet but without a feeling of big bulky hiking socks. Willie was impressed when I took my boots off; the odor stopping abilities worked like a charm, and Willie no longer crinkled up his nose and rolled his eyes when he carried my boots to the rack for me.
Just to be sure this wasn't a fluke, I've worn them on every outdoor excursion since. This unbearable heat wave and drought have given me ample opportunity! They continue to perform as well after repeated washing as they did on the first trip out!
Given the lightweight, thin feel and snug fit I'm looking forward to wearing these under my more bulky hunting socks come those cold mornings in the goose pit.
