PRODUCT REVIEW – SealSkinz – Waterproof Breathable Thin Socklet – by Andrea R4W forum member
Style – These socks didn’t look massively attractive but that’s not really the purpose of socks. They certainly looked like a good pair of outdoor socks and would fit in with any outdoor kit. Score 3/5
Comfort/Fit – When I took these out of the packet they felt stiff and I didn’t think I would like the feel of them but I was really pleased once I tried them. The fit was excellent and they molded to my foot really well. They were really comfortable. Score 5/5
Freshness – After running a 10k in these, my foot felt fresh and there was no sweaty foot smell. I did a hike in them also, using them under walking socks and this worked well too. After washing they retained their look as shape. Score 5/5
Quality – This is a really good quality product. Score 5/5
Overall – I know that I will get lots of use out of these socks, both for running and also other outdoor activities. I would say that this is an excellent outdoor socklet. Water got into my shoe when on one of the walks and the waterproof socklets held up well. I would buy these again and recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable sock which can be used for running and other outdoor activities. Score 4/5
