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.

      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.

      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!!

      A:

      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.

      A:

      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
      thin-dress socks when paddling with a dry-suit, which has become standard
      gear for me once they came out with breathable materials.

      A:

      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.

      Always wash neoprene in cold water. Do not wring dry or use a clothes

      If you have issues with odor (everyone does, especially in warmer months)
      squirt a couple drops of this inside each sock and hand wash.

    Q:

    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.

      This sock is made for being worn inside shoes or sandals, but it does not have any kind of reinforced "sole" to protect your feet from gravel or rocks. I wouldn't recommend wearing them without any shoes or sandals.

      A:

      I don't think this sock is what you are looking for. These are not
      really that thin or form fitting. They are designed to keep the
      water out and your foot dry, but if you overtop them they will fill
      with water which will not drain out. Although I am not certain from
      your description of what you want, it sounds like you need more of a
      wet sock. Alternatively, I often use a thin merino wool base layer
      sock inside many of my water shoes to prevent chafing, etc. You just
      need to choose the proper weight for the seasons.

      A:

      I love these socks. They worked well with sandals with Velcro on the straps
      to allow for the form to go around the sock. I have worn in large boots.
      The socks feel too bulky though to fit in normal shoes. But maybe I got a
      too big a size. The socks fit looser than normal socks, but that was OK
      with me for use with sandals. If you can wear big boat shoes, they may work.
      Or a smaller size sock, and have patience getting them on. I could see how
      the sock could be more form fitting if I had gotten a smaller size.
      But I can't emphasize enough how these socks have been of such great use
      around the river, or as the inner lining of boots in the snow. Your feet
      will NOT get cold in these.

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.

    Comments about NRS HydroSkin Wetsocks:

    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.

                Comments about NRS HydroSkin Wetsocks:

                I use these socks in conjunction with my Keens and they've made swamp hiking even better. I creates a cushion that dries very quickly. My only issue is with the location of the bottom seam which rubs against the sole of my foot and creates a long blister. I now use waterproof medical tape to cover that area before I put the socks on.
