- what do you wear when wearing your winter boots?
previously i have used normal shoes a size bigger than normal and worn seal skin socks but recently i have been getting cold tootsies so have got me some MW80s, but when using full on winter boots with a goretex liner, is there a need for seal skins or will a pair of nice wooly socks do the trick at keeping feet warm, even when the water does get in?Posted 9 years agoTheLittlestHoboMember

Went nd bought a pack of 3 pairs of Karrimore (I Know they are just cheapy crp nowadays) walking socks for Â£4. Now i ride with two pairs of these socks on and the boots. Carry a backup pair in the camelback which i havent had to use yet. Toasty feet s farnickcSubscriber
By all means wear a thicker pair of socks, but the trick to not getting cold feet is to not restrict the flow of blood to them. Give your feet room to move inside the boot/shoe, and you’ll do a lot to alleviate the chilliness. try not to pull those Velcro straps too tight (or arch your foot when you do up your shoes) Makes a huge difference. Also try to get some socks that don’t have a mid arch compression (the stretchy bit on the foot that some running/sports socks have), and a not too tight cuff, that can make a difference too.Posted 9 years agogingerflashMember
Mine were bought with enough room for walking socks. i have long socks that come up to my knees (Thorlo wool/silk mix) and they’re toasty-warm.
Because of the combination of waterproof boots and waterproof-panelled tights, I very rarely get totally wet feet but they soon get warm again.Posted 9 years ago
