I recently learned about Seal Skinz at a trade show that I attended and was fortunate enough to get to know this company a little bit better. We all know that you can not let weather stop you from having a good time at the tailgate, but no one likes cold, wet feet.
Seal Skinz to the rescue! I got to test out a pair of their socks (they have more types of socks than you can imagine for all, shall we say, WALKS of life) and quickly put this pair to the test.
I figured if you’re outside with some light rain in your shoes it may not truly show off how waterproof these socks are, so I had to get in the tub. I know, I know I’m going to keep it family friendly, no worries:)
I put the Seal Skinz socks on and first off, they were actually more comfortable than I thought they would be. Some waterproof items I’ve used in the past are a little rigid and don’t feel that good on. These were a different story in terms of comfort, but we’re here to see if they can keep your feet dry. I cut on the faucet and stuck my foot under the flowing water for about a minute.
Not a drop of water got through to my toes and better yet I could barely feel the temperature of the water!
PROS: more comfortable than you’d expect from a waterproof item, they keep water out!
CONS: They don’t fully repel the water as the socks are wet to the touch (the outer portion, not the interior that touches your feet) after you’ve been in the water.
Overall, a product that does what it says and is more comfortable than I anticipated. I’m ready for it to rain:)
