I like the Hilly off road sock, and best of all, the Pete Bland All Terrain sock. Inov8 mudsoc is OK too.

All are here - peteblandsports.co.uk

Some people like Sealskinz, but lots of others seem to hate them for fell running. I can't comment as I only wear them for mountain biking.

I have been doing a fair bit of off road and trail for the past few years and would not go out without bridgedale socks & my inov8 debris gaiters to keep the annoying bits of stones/earth/sand/blah out of my shoes :)

Socks are socks. Off road ones are just dirtier, for me at least.
