    Yep - Had a pair of Sealskinz for the last 2 years, good investment, warm and dry feet in any golf shoe, regardless of how waterproof the shoe has become.

    Re: Waterproof socks

    Both sealskins and dexshell are very good, my advice you might need to size up your shoes as there pretty hefty / bulky 👍

    Thanks but unfortunately it's 2 hours or so to the nearest links, besides which half my time's spent in the long grass which still gets wet

    Re: Waterproof socks

    Sone good advice on here, thanks guys... seems a worthwhile investment as I've found in the past that even with good waterproof shoes that water still comes in over the top etc 👍👍

    Re: Waterproof socks

    After all the positive reviews/recommendations (thanks) I bit the bullet and bought some Sealskinz

    Picked them up for £21 from Go Outdoors (still priced up at £35 in store)

    First thoughts are... Wow, they're super comfortable and warm

    The real test will be out on the course this weekend after all the rain 👍

    Re: Waterproof socks

    New to the forum, but I have used sealskinz for around 5 years and swear by them!

    On course in rough they are superb!

    Re: Waterproof socks

    yes, still nice and thick. But I do believe you can buy a thinner pair now that are equally as waterproof!

    Mine are like this, bought them earlier this year. I wonder if they could stand up on their own.......I don't mind that on cold days, winter golf will be a breeze, but on a wet summers day I would sometimes accept wet feet from normal socks rather than overheat in these. I need to find an actual shop that sells them rather than online and see if I can find a thinner version for warmer, but wet, weather.

    I would add, they have worked brilliantly for me including in some very thick and wet rough. I no longer dread the walk into somping grass knowing the inevitable wet feet that will follow no longer happens.
