Not worth all that money,
This review is from: Sealskinz Walking Sock - Waterproof, Large (Misc.)
Tested these socks on a day trek and woodland camping through the peak district and found that they do give you that edge and feet will remain completely dry on short walks .I found that after an 8 hour hike through very boggy ground that my the socks had let in a slight bit of moisture. In conclusion these are not worth what they are priced at £15 would be a fair price in my opinion and they should claim that they are highly water resistant not waterproof.

I doubt the sock let in any moisture - more likely you had sweat so much that it had made the inside of the sock damp. Note that if the sock did not breathe - you would be pouring sweat out of your sock, rather than it just being mildly damp.

a customer says:
I Heard a tip as i have some of these but my feet did get wet and the advice was' go to a supermarket and buy some margiold or similar gloves (they even have the size on the back of the packaging).
I measured my ankle width and compared it to the packaging and promptly bought a medium size. I went back home and as the glove had a long cuff i cut off the fingers so i had a apiece 4 or 5 inches long.
I then (the next time it rained - i was cycling to work) i put the 'marigold cuff section' around the top ankle section of my sock and Lo and behold apart from the top of the ankle bit (as the marigolds do not allow moisture to escape) being damp, the rest of my feet (which had been wet previously) were dry.
it seems that the rain had entered down the top of the sock mid way up my ankle as the sock was a little gaping as i have slim ankles.
It maybe worth a try
