Commonly heard complaints from boaters are "My wetshoes dry slowly" and "My shoes really stink." The problems are related. Neoprene shoes don't "breathe" so moisture escapes slowly unless you work to eliminate it. And bacteria and other microorganisms in the water and from your feet can generate odors in those moist conditions. This video shows how to clean and dry watershoes to head off odor. And if stinky shoes happen, we show how to eliminate it.

    Q:

    Hi there,

    Is this a waterproof sock? (Similar to Seal Skinz and/or Dexshell socks)?

      No they are not. Think of them as a wet-suit for your feet. They will get
      wet, but trap water inside so you don't lose heat.

      Imraan, the neoprene material itself is watertight, but the seams are not taped and you can get some leakage there.

      A:

      No, I would not recommend them for SUP unless you were to wear booties over top, they have no grips, they are just like regular socks. The best use, correction, my best use for these socks is to wear under booties when the water temperature calls for a full wetsuit to kayak or paddle in and even sometimes under sandals (like KEENs) when the water is not quite warm enough for recreational swimming and I can wear a shorty in, but not so cold that additional layers (like a full wetsuit) are required.

      A:

      They're like a rubber sock. They have no grip or traction on the bottom. They wouldn't stay on your feet long in the water without a boot over top of them. If you were to wear them alone, water will fill up inside them like a balloon and they wouldn't stay on your feet. You'd loose them eventually. I wear them as an extra layer under the NRS 7mm neoprene boot because I work in very cold water.

      I don't think they will work for that application. Bottoms don't have the necessary grip, and they might roll on your feet when stressed. For what they were designed for they work great! You might take a look at their booties with soft soles. I own several different NRS styles and they all grip really well. Best of luck on you search.

      Sorry for the late reply, I've been out of the country for 3 weeks. The
      socks are pretty thin, I wear mine with shoes all the time. Assuming your
      dry suit booties aren't too thick, I think you'll be fine.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I think I know what you're getting at, but you might have worded your question backwards. I wear these socks INSIDE of the waterproof socks that are built-in to my drysuit. So the drysuit provides waterproof protection, but these separate hydroskin sock help pull sweat-moistuire, etc. away from my skin. At least I think I'm doing that right.
      And yes, when worn inside my drysuit, I can get all of that into my neoprene boots, but typically I don't wear all of that into regular shoes. I think it would be just too much. I usually wear regular clothes to the put-in and change on site, and I usually just wear my dry-suit and water booties all the way home from the take-out (assuming it's only an hour or so drive).

      A:

      Yes, the NRS Hydroskin 0.5 should be thin enough depending on your shoes. I personally purchased NRS shoes that were specifically big enough for my drysuit and socks. I have a “summer pair” of NRS shoes that I wear with no socks. I like to wear a thick pair of wool socks under my drysuit so they stay dry and warm. I then put the drysuit bootie directly into hightop NRS shoes to protect the latex bootie and my ankles. The NRS Hydroskin 0.5 sock should work either inside the drysuit or outside… if you plan on wearing it outside get a size bigger at least so that it doesn’t bunch up the latex drysuit bootie and drive your feet/skin crazy.
      Hope this helps!

      A:

      Yes, Dru, these socks aren't much thicker than a dress sock. If you're looking for warmth, I'd suggest wearing your insulation on the inside of the drysuit socks. If perhaps you have latex socks on your drysuit and are trying to make them easier to slip inside your wetshoes, then a thin dress or hiking sock will do the same job, and cheaper.

      A:

      Probably, depending on how tight your paddling shoes are and how thick of a
      sock you're wearing inside your drysuit. They're only .5mm thick, so I'd
      think so. That's probably the best application for these socks. Good luck.

      Answered on 12/4/2014 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The Hydroskin seems thinner than similar neoprene so they'd be the most
      likely to fit, but I have a question.
      I imagine you know this (don't mean to insult your intelligence), but the
      way Hydroskin and other neoprene style socks work is by trapping a layer of
      water beside the skin. Your body warms the thin layer of water trapped
      there to keep your feet warm.
      However, it the hydroskin socks are not against your skin, I'm not sure
      they can serve their function. I presume your wetsuit booties are made of
      neoprene or a similar material, in which case, you'd already be getting the
      benefit that these socks can bring you.
      So why not go with a thin wool sock? My typical layers on my feet are
      Hydroskin socks against my skin and a wool sock over that, thickness
      depending on how loose my shoe is.
      Just a thought....

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      When I wear these socks, I wear them on their own without any other sock
      layer. You need to have the fabric in contact with your skin. Your skin
      warms the water trapped in this sock so that your feet don't get as cold,
      in the same way that a wet suit or neoprene style gloves work. I suppose
      you could wear a wool sock over them, but that might be too thick to fit
      into your water shoe. If your shoe accommodates them, I imagine you can
      wear the wool over the water sock. I find the water socks work well in
      moderately cold conditions to keep my feet from chilling out too much.

      Answered on 8/11/2014 by Trulyb from Asheville
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      It's all about how cold the water is & the boot/show you're wearing. The neoprene sock will give you some warmth. You can 'layer up' by wearing another insulating sock either under the neoprene one or on top. However, you need to make sure that whatever you do, you'll still fit comfortably in your boot - too tight and you'll reduce blood flow which is not great for staying warm. The best advice is to try things out and find the right fit/arrangement for you and the conditions you'll be paddling in.
      I have one pair of NRS boots for winter that will fit my dry suit booties plus socks comfortably and another pair of NRS boots for summer that work great for bare feet.
      Cheers and enjoy the water!!

      I use the wet sock directly on a bare foot. It has a tight fit and is adequately insulating for my purposes. I use a water sandal over wet sock. I’m sure that if your wet sock is large enough and you are prone to having cold feet, you could wear it over a regular sock. I’m not sure how comfortable that would feel. Hope this is of some help.

      It has a comfortable inner lining so can be worn directly against the skin. You could layer another wetsock over it for more warmth. Normally there'd be no reason to wear any type of sock over it.

      In my experience it is important NOT to wear multilayers of socks. I'd wear
      wet socks inside kayaking shoes in a cold "wet" paddle, or else I wear

      gear for me once they came out with breathable materials.

      I really am unqualified to know whether XXL size will fit a 14 foot size. However, I can say that medium wet socks fit foot size 9.5 and 10. And, that these wet socks were perfect for the 50 degree water on the Colorado River rafting trip. Wore them comfortably all day for 8 days straight.
      If you have never worn neoprene previously, it really can stretch, and body powder can help the slipping on process.

      squirt a couple drops of this inside each sock and hand wash.

    If I wear a 9 1/2 shoe would you recommend the large or XL sock?
    Asked on 5/19/2014 by Steve from Mt. Laurel, NJ

    8 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The NRS Hydroskin Wetsocks are true-to-size. My shoe size is currently 10 or 10 1/2 (depending on the shoe) although I was a 9 1/2 when I was younger and the Large wetsocks fit very nicely. They are supposed to be form fitting, so XL would probably feel loose for a man who wears a 9 1/2 shoe. The only other consideration might be ankle size. I have average ankles and the L wetsocks feel relatively snug around my ankles. For a man with thicker ankles, they might feel constricting. Remember, however, that Hydroskin is a naturally stretchy material, so if you want a warm snug fit that your feet aren't going to slip around in, but true-to-size.

I love these socks, I mainly use while Sea Kayaking, wearing inside LaCross Alpha Burly 18" high rubber boots, over lite wt. wool socks. My feet stay dry feeling and the inside of the boots stay almost dry feeling. I have worn this set up from 7am to 11pm several days on week long yaking, fishin' trips. I first used them for cold weather cycling, I liked so much I bought another pair one size larger for kayaking, thinking I would want to wear heavier wt. socks while yaking. Sizing is good, I have 10.5 feet, XL 10-11, fit is perfect. I first use the xxl socks for yaking with a med. wt. wool sock, great, I then tried the xl with med. wt. sock, felt good, was not tight, sock has enough stretch not to feel tight around foot. I have not worn sock with out a liner sock.
Cons: I would like a XXXL size for wearing over a Heavy wt. sock for wearing while grooming a XC ski trail. Currently wear sock over Hydrosock.

great fabric, thin but warm. good to keep in dry bag for unplanned cold water or weather.

unfortunately, on my pair the stitching started coming apart with only a few uses. NRS qickly relaced them with a new generation so maybe this problem has been resolved, but I have not used the new pair yet. also, i usually wear size large socks (10) but seem more comfortable with xl in these socks.

        I recommend these socks if you are going to be in the water for an extended period of time or if you have boots/wetshoes that may be a little hard to get off or on. I wear these all the time now when I put on my water boots. They do help keep my feet much warmer. I'm in the water for sometimes 9 hrs a day working on piers and the water ranges from 40 degrees to 70ish. These socks work well, are comfortable and durable. I can usually get through 1 pair in a season (4 months-5 days a week).

        The only negative is you have to clean them really well inside an out or they will stink worse than you can imagine. I have to leave them in the back of my truck otherwise my cab will never be the same.

          This is a great product that I used on a short paddling trip down the Black River in Watertown NY. I noticed that the day was going to be cooler than originally expected so I chose to pick up a couple pairs of these great socks for my wife and I. They were one of the best choices that I made. I should add that I also purchased the 1.5mm NRS Hydro Shirt as well. While everyone on the boat was shivering due to the cooler water/outside temperature (which impacted their enjoyment of the ride) we were nice and toasty even though we were just as wet as they were. I think that the hydro socks are so important to a pleasant paddling experience because the feet are in constant contact with the water. The purchase of both the socks and shirts was a bit expensive but immediately paid for itself when we put our feet in the cooler water and engaged the relentless splashing of the rapids that followed. We stayed warm the entire trip!

                  These were great! We used them for rafting in the Grand Canyon under water sandals. The size M fit my daughter very well, she wears women's size 8.5 to 9. She originally said they were uncomfortable when she tried them on, but ended up wearing them the whole time, including short hikes, with no complaints about rubbing. And she said her feet were nice and warm (50 degree water). Dried out nicely at night - we turned them inside out.
