I’ve been tempted to try out waterproof socks, but I haven’t quite made the mental jump to give them a go. There are few reasons behind this, with the biggest one that I worry that by being waterproof they won’t be breathable, the second is that they tend to be pretty expensive, and lastly there’s the how to keep water from coming in from the top problem (i.e. rain running down your legs).
This set of Hummvee Waterproof II claims to be breathable, so that’s one less thing to be concerned about (assuming they actually work :)), now to think on the other two.
Update: I totally forgot that the water in the sock problem is a solved issue. Get some of these (thanks Deane). Done.
