Your favorite sock liner?
Through much of the winter eg between 20-40 deg have had trouble w/ feet getting sweaty, then freezing.

To be able to use my regular road shoes am planning on wearing from inside out:

-Thin, wicking sock vs sock liner
-Chemical toe heater
-Sidi Mega road shoes
-defeet slipstream (thin over shoe; 60% Cordura Nylon 30% Nylon 10%)
-Pearl Izumi toe covers

This way have more wind protection up front, breathability rear of foot to prevent sweat-->freeze

2 questions
1-What thin, wicking sock vs sock liner would you rec? Have heard Patagonia has nice Ultra Lightweight Hiking Crew Liners to use as only sock to leave lots of toe wiggle room.
2-any adaptations of the above you'd rec?

For <20deg I have Last yrs Lake Mtn boots w/ Outlast.

Thanks, TJ
