I have about a billion pairs of the Dr. Scholls diabetic/circulation socks. They're hard to find, so when I do find them I buy eight or ten pairs (always black).
They don't bind at the ankle and they wick moisture well enough for me and they're that magical balance of warm in winter but not too hot in summer.
I've never tried another brand so I won't say they're "the best" but they work great for me.
When they get old I save them as "bed socks" and slide on two or three on each foot when it's super cold at night.
