    Pricing looks OK for water proof socks…

    How well do they wash? I had a couple of pairs of sealskins years ago but both ended up in 40C washes by mistake which ruins the membrane

    Since then just accepted warm but wet feet when conditions overwhelm waterproof boots (which is probably when waterproof socks become useless anyway

    Just reminded me that I need to order a couple of pairs of these (in tiny version) to help get the kids through winter

    Good to see. I have been a big fan of gore’s waterproof socks but they appear to be discontinued. These look cheaper.

    My Sealskin lookalikes from Lidl’s are still going strong after 4+ years and cost less than £10 as I remember, unfortunately never seen them in there again. I do wear them under GoreTex boots most of the time though. Which reminds me I must re-proof my boots, had the first proper rainfall in Dorset last night since I can’t remember when!

    I must admit to having been unimpressed by the two pairs of these that I’ve owned. Wet feet in rides that my seal skinz would have kept me dry. Maybe it was due to the length (mid on the seal skinz). Might have to try the longer style and see if that improves their performance, as they are reasonably priced.

    @b33k34 I wash pretty much everything at 30 deg and they’ve been fine so far. I have spoiled other socks by washing too hot though, and also by trying to rush the drying process on the top of a radiator. Then they’ve gone kind of crinkly and much less waterproof- but still better then standard socks for keeping the cold and wet at bay.

    Anyone else think the Decathlon site is rubbish – no sizing info etc.

    No only no sizing, but also no stock of the socks that were recommended. Overall a pretty useless review

    The seller has sold out of the socks, so the *review* is useless? Tough crowd!

    I had the old version of these, very good. I get the feeling that calf fit’s pretty important to stop them leaking in the top, and they aren’t warm at all, but I like ’em.

    I got my socks via Upgrade Bikes, who have plenty in stock: https://www.upgradebikes.co.uk/Catalogue/DexShell/Dexshell-Range#Socks
