This is a question for those of you who wear sandals outside of the summer months while riding. I've seen a lot of posts from people who just put wool socks on and continue to wear their sandals when it gets cooler outside. I feel like I could be a sandal kind of guy, so I got a pair of Shimano sandals on closeout a few weeks ago. Now what kind of wool socks should I look for? Hiking? Skiing? What's the difference between alpaca and merino wool? What the heck is smartwool?
I just want to keep my feet warm on those cool spring and fall mornings when I'm going for a long ride or doing a multi-day event. Does anyone wear socks with their sandals in the hot summer? I see some that claim to keep you cool in summer and warm in the winter. How is that possible?
