Under Armour ColdGear Outdoor Lite Boot Socks for Men
It's not a very thick sock, but it does have some nice features. They stay up very well, and my calves are very large. The arches are tight enough that they provide real support. Don't expect them to be warm when it gets below zero, they just aren't thick enough.

Great warmth to weight ratio
These socks do very well in their intended enviroment. They do not cause your feet to start sweating with moderate activity and keep them warm when sitting for a period of time. Not great for frigid days but that is not what they were made to do.

I bought these socks based on previous reviews (rather than more expensive socks that weren't as highly rated). What a bargain! They're warm and comfortable, even on the coldest of winter days. I'll definitely be buying another pair or two.

These socks are extremely comfortable with plenty of padding in all the right places. They're also very warm for how light they are. This wouldn't be a great sock for extreme cold, but it says so in the title: "Outdoor Lite Boot Socks". The socks breathe very well, as you'd expect from anything made by Under Armour.
I originally bought them to use while hiking but I've since ordered a few more pairs and I've taken to just wearing them around the house instead of my old slippers when my feet get cold. They're holding up extremely well under fairly heavy use. I'm very pleased and would definitely buy even more if my wife would let me.
One word of caution... The tops of the socks don't stretch very much, so if you have large calves like me you should order the largest size you think you'll be able to wear without it bunching at your toes and you should be fine. The material did relax enough to be comfortable after a while and the tightness actually just helps keep the sock up my calf. I don't count it as a negative at all, but I thought I should mention in case someone else would care more.
