Default Sweaty Feet = Cold Feet

My feet sweat and then get cold.
I wear good socks [not cotton] and good boots but still they sweat & get cold.

Anyone else have this issue? Is there anything a person can do?

Thanks!

The best medicine for cold feet I ever found are heavy polypropylene (Polartec type) socks from Cabelas. Bought a couple of pair 8 or 10 years ago and haven't seen them for sale anywhere since.

Hm, hubby does this, and they work.

Under Armour crew socks as a liner, and high quality merino wool hunting socks over them. Fox River socks or Redhead Treestand socks.

I use a synthetic wicking liner (the ones that came with my old Smartwool hunting socks, or my 'Gobi' synthetic polypro liners (Redhead from BPS), under my Redhead Treestand socks.

What kind of boots you wearing, man?

I wear 400gram Danners for not so cold weather and Sorels for the cold stuff.

The inside of my Sorels are just wet with moisture when I take my liners out -even when I not walking in wet conditions

Some of the research Ive done may date back to my early days and maybe some bouts with frostbite.

I had a heat related injury in the Army nad my doctor told me that I would struggle with heat and cold the rest of my life...I have to work real hard to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer... not sure if this is your issue as well.

Do your feet only get cold when they sweat? Have you ever tried wearing a lighter boot that allows your foot to breathe and maybe not sweat and get cold? Only asking because I wear a light hiking boot (waterproof) and a regular wool/cotton blend sock and never have much problem with cold feet. Just a thought and not trying to be a smart [email protected]@.

I drive to the goose pit/ice hole in different shoes from what I wear in the cold. I change when I get there. I wear smart wool socks. They make two different thread counts. I wear Pac boots. Never get cold even when I sweat in the field.

My feet are always cold - no matter what footwear or socks I have on.

Some of the research I read is that a shot Botox can cure the problem, or foot electrolysis from the doctor.

I also seems the older i get, the worse it gets
