    So far I’ve never had this problem, even while using my 3mm thick divers socks for a VBL in cold weather.

    I’m very careful to dry those VBL socks every night and to change into a clean, dry pair of thin poly liner socks for the next day. But using the proper preventative creams/salves is another way to keep your feet healthy.

    When backpacking Coyote Gulch in Utah’s Grand Escalante I spent about 2/3 of my time wading in the creek wearing Merrill MOAB mesh shoes and wool/acrylic blend socks that dried rapidly. No problems that week.
