Does anyone's feet sweat as much as mine. I haven't found a sock yet that will keep my feet dry. Any recommendations?

Wool.

I learned last year to wear wool on an elk hunt. Get light weight, meduim weight, and heavy weight based on how cold it is outside. It naturally wicks moisture. They cost much more than cotton, but I was told pre-elk hunt "cotton kills" don't have any cotton as a base layer. That was correct. Wool socks are more durable as well.

you'll never regret getting some good merino wool socks.
get 70% or better. if you still have a problem, find some
of the polyprolene liner socks to wear with the wool.

+1.

If you wear a very thin liner sock of polypropylene or thermax--which is hydrophobic and wicking--under your heavier wool socks, your feet should remain dry all day. The liner will also help prevent blisters when hiking or climbing, and it will keep your feet away from the itchy wool, if that bothers you. I also like to carry an extra pair of wool socks in my pack in case I need to change them out midday. My feet sweat like crazy too, even in so-called breathable gore tex boots.

Nothing works inside rubber boots, but otherwise, wool!

Mine Do! I can take off my boots and leave wet footprints on the rocks. I have spent many miles backpacking and found that wool socks were the answer. Get multiple pair and every time you stop for a break, switch socks. Get the wet pair attached to the outside of your pack and keep on going. If blisters are a problem use a polypro sock liner. With regard to the socks, REI will have a good selection. Most of my socks are the Smart Wool brand.

Hyperhydrosis is the condition
First try antiperspirant deodorant daily
Second try certain dry pads they are a strong antiperspirant
Be sure to spray your shoes out with Lysol Bacteria in the shoe plus sweat equals stink
There are 2 prescriptions for the condition.
Drysol roll on. It is an extra strength antiperspirant

And last lazarformaldehyde. It is a formalin base and will dry your feet out for an extended period of time. Weeks sometimes months. Need tk use lotion along with it to help the skin. .

The Gold Toe "Cotton Fluffy" are great socks for feet that sweat. They come in a few varieties. Get the thick ones with the cushions at the ball and heel. Great socks.

I agree with those saying wool socks with a thin liner sock underneath. It's worked great for me.

Sock liners with wool socks and an extra pair of wool socks to change after about 4 hours will is enough. You also need leather boots, they breath, rubber boots don't and you can be walking in water if your feet sweat real bad.

This is the ticket. The liner sock also goes a long way in preventing blisters/hotspots.
