Dryex waterproof socks - the answer to no more wet feet?
« on: January 13, 2018, 06:48:18 am »
I am yet to come across a proper waterproof boot.  My Gaernes or Fox boots certainly doesn't meet that criteria.

Does anyone have experience with waterproof socks?  Saw this and are keen to know if this could be an option.

Unfortunately only have the Facebook link.

"Don't let cold wet feet ruin your outdoor fun! We developed DryEx Waterproof Socks to solve the soggy toe problem and to keep your feet dry while cycling, running, hiking, any outdoor activity in the rain.

Our socks are fully waterproof thanks to 3-layers: a wear resistant knit exterior (feels like a regular sock), a waterproof breathable membrane, and a moisture wicking anti-bacteria lining. The result is a sock that feels like a sock but protects like a rain bootie. 

Now you don't have to choose between keeping your feet dry and breathability (we don't like sweaty feet either)."

Get SIDI boots.   They amazingly waterproof.  I saw the same fb advert. The thing I worry about with those ads is that they look like they promoting gimmicks. . I'm not convinced

The socks in the picture are a bit short for your typical boots.  The problem with waterproof is that they retain water and sweat.

Like Highsider said. Once you put your foot down during the water crossing,  your stuffed! There will be no way for the water that flooded in at the top to escape.

 :thumleft:  Obviously not the answer to my wrinkly feet woes.   :biggrin:

New boots is however out of the question for now.

I don't get the need for waterproof boots. It also means water cant get out.

I'm not looking at a solution to counter submerging the boots completely, that happens very seldom.  It's when your boots is ankle deep in water (even walking through a stream crossing), it seeps in and you have to ride with wet feet the rest of the day.  Waterproof socks should keep your feet dry and the water can find its way out the boot again through the same route it came in, or something like this.

ktmkobus, ek dink ons hier in die Kaap is gesort en hoef nie te worry oor nat voete nie.  Hier is nie water nie.   :-\ :'( :lol8:

Nee, ek weet wat jy bedoel.  Sal self wil weet waar kry n man so n paar sokkies.   :thumleft: :thumleft:
