Hi All,

Well, I'm looking for some advice on socks. I am going to Europe in March and am starting to gather up my travel gear now so that I'm not scrambling last minute. Anyway, last time I went to Europe for 2 weeks, I wore plain cotton socks in regular sneaks, needless to say, I ended up with some major blisters the whole trip. It made me extremely uncomfortable and I don't want to make the same mistake again.

About 2 months ago I bought a really good pair of Keens and have been wearing them most of the time in order to get my feet used to them. I am still wearing the same style of cotton socks with the Keens, but I would like something that will have better support, be fast drying, color black, and will whick moisture away rather than hold onto it. I've been looking on the web and About.com lists their top socks as being: Thorlos, SmartWool, WrightSock Double Layer, WigWam Mills and SockGuy. Any thoughts, opinions?

Thanks for your help!
