Would these be to hot in a winter boot?
Are these really heavy socks to the point that they get all sweaty and hot when wearing them in a good winter boot? And do they absorb odor or do they smell after wearing them outside for hours? And how soft are they?

They used to be very warm, and fit perfectly. They would be fine in a winter boot. Now they are not soft, very thin, and very loose fitting. I won't be buying anymore of them. It's too bad. They used to be the best socks you could find.
They're good socks they just fit poorly. Too big according to appropriate shoe size so they bunch up at the toes and heel. A good, practical weight. Not hot and sweaty or smelly. I have other wool socks that are softer. If they fit better I might buy them again but I have socks that I like better and paid half the price for so will stick with them.
I wear under boots to horseback ride what I like is they arent heavy and my feet dont sweat.

This can vary somewhat depending on the person wearing them, but they are designed to minimize moisture and odor. As a result, most people would not find these to be unsuitable for wear with heavier footwear.

They are not super bulky. In fact, I wear them indoors and they are just fine. That's the best thing about wool--it breathes and adjusts to different temps. They are very soft and comfy and do not get smelly--at least in the way that I use them.

If you still haven't decided let me tell you that you can't go wrong with these. These are a lighter version of the Redhead lifetime hunting socks. I've had those for 3 years and wear them all the time and have yet to wear them out. As a firefighter I wore them for work and never had a problem with the heat during the summer. I bought 3 pair of the Natural reflections for the days I wanted a lighter sock. I've had socks that were over $20 a pair and they didn't hold up near as well or feel as good on my feet.
Hope that helps
