Super socks for sweaty feet

Please share your recommendations for ladies sweat-wicking exercise socks.

After exercise my feet are a sodden gross mess of sweat. I'm currently wearing 100% cotton OR merino. Not working. Help! Recommend to me the best anti-sweat socks you know. Difficulty: must be black, below the shoe/ankle line ie not show outside the sneaker, ladies, small size, available to buy online, and, crucially, black or other dark colour. Oh. And must must wick the sweat from my sweaty sweaty feet. Such a thing must exist... Right? Please?

Cotton socks are just about the worst thing you could wear unless you want swamp feet.

Try these SockGuy socks or other socks made of wicking material.

These Lululemon no-show socks are the best I've found. I wear them for running and adore them. Not sodden at all, even after 10-15 miles in the summer.

Best answer: I really like Balega socks. These would work well for you.

Best answer: I run in Thorlo running socks. I can't link from my phone, but they have been great. I get mine from Sports Authority. REI also has them or with a quick google search and you can get them online.

SmartWool socks. I wear them for running and biking. They're great for activity in the winter because they somehow manage to keep your feet warm but dry.

Came here to suggest Balega. They don't slip, are great for sweat, come in many colors and don't show above the sneaker. My favorites.
