I have found just the opposite to be true.  Whenever I have used a liner sock,
blisters were inevitible.  Yet when I use a good sock (either Thorlo Trekkers
or Smartwools) without a liner, I have had no blisters.  Just goes to show you
how different everyone's feet are.  The best advice I can give is to
experiment with different combinations BEFORE hitting the trail and to use
what works best for you.  No two people are exactly alike.
