I found Sealskinz useful even after they'd sprung a little leak, but no longer use them now that I have found a better (for me) winter solution of thinner and more robust non-breathable waterproof socks worn over the top of woolly ones. Not only was I going to ride the puddle, I planned on stopping and fully emerging my feet and shoes into it. Unless I'm expecting very cold weather, this is my go-to footwear combo for any kind of hiking, wet or dry. I've waterproof sealskinz and rate them for winter, esp anything more than an HR or so of running when I expected my feet to get wet and stay wet.

Trail runners dry fast; when boots get wet, they take forever to dry--but you can stuff your shoes with newspaper and it helps. For me, Sealskinz mid-length waterproof socks, worn over a not-too-thick pair of synthetic-material boot socks, were an absolute must for the conditions, even though they are rather expensive and relatively short-lived. Sealskinz are great for walking, for which they are designed, esp in boggy terrain and when using cold wet boots with a clean dry pair of sealskinz - perfect.On the subject of keeping your feet dry, many believe you shouldn't worry about keeping them dry, but instead, being comfortable when wet. Dexshell waterproof socks - the biggest kit discovery I have made in years - get the thick ones, as the thin ones are a bit too fragile. regarding the socks I have tried many brands, and have to say, if you live in a country where Lidl Crivit socks are available, look no further.

For "Joe Pilgrim" in his typical needs, you would be generally right -- but it's not a "myth", it's a specific need in some specific circumstances, which aren't those of the "average" Joe Pilgrim. and they are Brilliant my feet have never been more comfortable, then I tried them in my running shoes up in the Peak District and again Brilliant, knee deep bogs and water and my feet were comfortable all day long !I wear wool boxers, wool shirts, and wool socks almost every single day… Usually, if I'm not wearing wool socks, it means I'm barefoot — which is ideal. If you suffer from cold feet, get a pair of long warmbac neoprene wetsocks -just keep trying until you find a pair that fits, Sealskinz will get wet on the inside in a wet cave and then your feet will be cold. Humid feet happen when wearing non-breathable, non-draining, slow-drying footwear that gets wet inside (from rain and/or sweat) and stays wet and warm.

I think that if the cut of them had been closer to my foot shape it would have helped a lot, but everyone's foot shape is a bit different and I imagine that trying to produce a range of socks with such a wide range of shapes would not have been cost effective. Once I figured this out, it allowed me to continue working or running happily outside in the rain and cold as long as my tools are protected. Although the cockpit stayed dry under the hard top, a trip to the bow got you drenched with water coming up from both under and across the tramp.Two days track cutting, four days clinging onto the Benarat Cliffs, 185m of rope run out climbing to the legendary Corner Cave feature and. a while ago I was suggesting sandals as the best alternative, but then again, there might be "weak ankle" syndrome. But like others, I've got a couple of pairs of Sealskinz that I use for running in the winter (I 'normal' pair and a merino pair).

Over a long day walking, I think the poorer fit than normal socks, and reduced breathability, would make my feet less comfortable than normal socks. I had no sock issues and no blisters, but man did they fill with sand at the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. I've got through some pretty gnarly full days in winter (a full day tour of a big section of the Northern Fells, and the Marsden-Edale Trigger in temperatures well blow zero) and my feet haven't dropped off yet.I was waiting for the socks to arrive before replacing the shoes (Speedcross; I got fed up of their behaviour on wet stone), and I reckon they will make half a size difference.
