Must depend on who's feet they are on

I have two versions of Chota lace-up models, and have never seen any need for special socks to aid in getting them on and off. In fact, they go on and off far easier than ordinary hiking boots (whether high-top or low-top), for which special slick-surface socks aren't needed. I am a slender person, but others have mentioned here in the past that the "fat-taper" uppers of Chota boots make them go on and off with ease. Anyway, I always wear wool socks with a polypro liner sock under them. Wool is better than any other material I've tried when it comes to warmth, but also are amazingly cool compared to other materials when it's "too hot" for warm socks. The polypro liner sock is just an easy way to keep the wool clean.
