Don't waste your money,
This review is from: Sealskinz Walking Sock - (Misc.)
Don't waste your money on these. You'd do better wearing normal socks and accepting the wet feet.
I have now been through two pairs of these socks. The first pair leaked (well one sock did) on the second trip out. I complained through Amazon and was asked to send them back for testing. Since I was asking for a replacement pair and not money back I thought this was very distrusting.
Anyway the replacement pair arrived. I've just had them out on one of my runs. All I was doing was running through wet grass, not even puddles and both pairs have let as much water in as if I was wearing normal walking socks.
I have a SealSkinz hat which is great and bought these following my experience of that.
Please don't waste your money on these socks. If you want some hard wearing walking socks then feel free, but if you are wanting waterproof ones then look elsewhere.
Overall I'm gutted as their promise was just what I was after. Unfortunately they just haven't delivered.

sealskinz socks are designed for walking not running in, if there;s any constant movement from when you run the waterproof membrane will slip and wear out !
