May be obvious to some but the only thing you need to do is make sure water is not running down your leg because it will run into the sock and your back to cold wet feet.
This used to happen to me when I used the shorter version of these socks even when I had over trousers on because they would ride up as I was going along allowing water to get to my leg, then I bought these longer ones and no further concerns.
I would heartily recommend these even though they are expensive for socks, warm dry feet are worth it.
I've had a pair of ankle length SealSkinz's for years and they are still in really good condition, but I do find that water tends to run down my leg and inside the ankle length ones when I'm mountain biking, and going through lots of deep puddles. But the mid length ones are perfect as they come much higher up the leg.
At over £25, these socks took a significant amount of research and consideration before I made the purchase, but I can honestly say that these socks are the best use of £25 I could ever imagine. I bought them a few days before some field work involving a river. They arrived and I immediately put them over my hand and ran them under a tap. No leaks. I then filled the sink and immersed them. No leaks. I then put a jar of pasta sause in each sock and left them in the sink overnight and was delighted to discover that they were completely dry inside.
The field work came and went and for the first time ever I enjoyed the day fully with my warm, dry feet. Warm being quite an important word. I have used these socks on tens of field work expeditions all over the UK and Europe, all year round in rivers, mud and snow and my feet have always been warm. I tend to wear normal socks as well, just out of habit more than anything, but these socks do keep your feet snug even in the coldest of temperatures.
The socks are also very comfortable when completely submerged- its strange as you don't really feel the water sloshing about in your shoe at all. It all feels sort of, well, normal; which is great.
I had my reservations about their longevity and robustness after the first couple of uses, but so far so good. They've been through the wash a few dozen times and their seal is still watertight. I guess I'll have another few years of trouble-free usage from these yet! Another good thing about these is that if you're out camping and have no means of drying clothes, the outside of the socks seem to dry really quickly so they can be put in your bag or worn in dry shoes without making them miserable too.
After seeing my persistent use of these socks, many of my coursemates and lecture staff have gone on to buy their own. I would recommend to anybody for any purpose.
The boots look perfect and we all treat the leather with oil, polish, dubbin or waterproofing spray, but they still end up leaking at some point, by the next winter.
These socks allow me to wear the boots for a second winter so are great value. They are also warm.
Anyone know a make of golf boot that is watertight for more than one winter?
