    Booties vs Wool/Neoprene Socks

    I went for a frosty ride the other night...the only bad thing was my toes...1/2 my foot felt frozen by the time all of us finished...some of the guys wore booties and they said their toes were frozen Ive got these gator socks they are neoprene I think...and I prolly need to try them..anyway I was wondering which do you think works the best on a cold night of riding..booties or wool/neoprene socks?

    I prefer booties like the Endura MT500 over thick socks, thick socks make my shoes too tight and then my feet get cold quickly. If your shoes are big enough for neoprene socks without constricting blood flow that works well too. Sorels or hiking boots and flat pedals work best if it's really cold, the pedal/cleat/shoe interface is where a lot of heat is lost.
