Everyone is different. Do what works best for you. Continue wearing the socks you wear during training.
FYI - I wear single layer socks: Balega Enduro or Thorlos.
No question you should use what you use when you train...but, if you want a recomendation on some socks check out Icebreaker. Get a couple pairs of these and I would bet you will never buy regular socks again.
