Default SealSkinz Socks

Ok so it's not a boot per say. However it might as well be.
Bloody brilliant.


I had been using an old pair of ankle Sealskinz socks which were ok.
However yesterday these bad boys arrived.

Wore this morning, ok so it wasn't raining - I don't doubt the waterproofness of them. But nice and toasty. Best 34.99 I've spent in awhile.

Yep, will make up for a bad or worn boot that lets in water

I seem to have acquired 3 pairs of various lengths & thicknesses.

I have a pair that are specifically designed as overshoes for my cycling shoes.

I wear Sealskinz when off roading on my pushbike, as my feet stay dry & warm. Totally waterproof & wash easy

Pretty sure I saw a display of these last time I was in Blacks so easy to get hold of too. As I don't do rain (except in the car) I have not invested in them.

Sealskinz have been really good for me on the bike. I was using some ex army type liners that are ok but not as convenient. I use the Sealskinz for walking too and they are very good. The only downside for me is that as a walking sock they wear at the heal quicker than a regular sock. Otherwise worth the cost. Recommended.

Got a pair of dexshell lightweight waterproof socks for xmas. Wear them under a boot sock when out on the KTM endure, boots leak like a sieve - the socks don't.


Bit cheaper than Sealskinz, and not as 'rubber johnny' feeling !!! Bit more like a sock than the sealskinz one's.
