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:

    I am looking for a thin style water sock with rubber style durability on the soles for rowing in crew. There are already permanent Velcro style slip in shoes that come already attached to the shell (sometimes the shoes are large & sometimes they are small, so I need a sock that will allow me to slide my feet inside the boat shoes but also allow me to walk when carrying the boat to & from the boat house on gravel. Would you recommend this sock for this specific use?

      I have only used these sock while rafting. They were thin enough to slip
      into my shoes without any issues. Sometimes, if I was submerged in water,
      they took on some water and didn't release until I took them off.

      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.

      I wear these socks with my teva sandals and they are comfortable. They are fairly thin, so walking on a rocky shore is not comfortable for a long period of time.

      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.

      The hydroskin socks do not have any sole to protect your feet, especially on gravel. They're designed only for warmth. The NRS Rodeo sock has a thin rubber sole and will probably work better for your situation.

      I do not think these sock would hold up long walking on gravel. The bottom is the same thickness as the rest of the sock, 2mm I think. I have only used mine inside water sandals where they worked well. I don't think they are designed for very much rough use.

      Debbie, HydroSkin Socks are 0.5 mm neoprene, but do not have a sole suitable for walking over any uneven surfaces. Take a look at the Freestyle Wetshoes, Item # 30017.03, to see if they might meet your needs.

      These socks have a thin neoprene construction. They work well when worn
      inside a paddling shoe such as the NRS Attack shoe. They do not have a
      rubber sole so they would not be suitable for walking on gravel.

      I have these wetsocks and I always wear a pair of very thin Smartwool
      base layer socks, as insurance. That protects from chafing from any
      fine sand that might work its way down into the sock, if overtopped.
      I did not alter the recommended sizing for this since the baselayer
      wool socks are very thin. I have had chafing with neoprene boots
      before and since I went to wearing the baselayer wool socks, no more
      issues, even with 1 week of portaging the Boundary Waters all day in
      wet boots.

      Katie, the HydroSkin Socks are about the thickness of a thick dress sock, so normally folks find they fit in their regular size shoes. You can wear a thin fabric sock inside them but unless you're doing a lot of walking where a two-layer sock system might be useful to fight abrasion, it's probably not necessary.

      A:

      If you wear socks, you should wear a poly, spandex blend and Not any cotton
      or wool. Depending on your level of activity and water contact, the
      insides of the socks will be damp when you take them off. They are like a
      wetsuit for your feet. The only reason to wear a sock is to keep the
      insides cleaner if you are wearing the Wetsocks for several days without
      the opportunity to launder or for cushioning your feet. I like a cycling
      or running sock when I wear socks like Swiftwick ( no offense NRS ).
      Size is a preference depending on how you like socks to feel on your feet -
      tight or loose so you can wiggle your toes. I think you should be thinking
      about small or medium.
      These are good socks and a good insulator. I've had a pair I wear when its
      cold with sandals for 4 years. I do wear them with socks but they breathe
      a lot better with sandals than they would inside a shoe or boot.

    I am looking for a neoprene sock to wear inside my hiking boots. (The neoprene sock is intended to be the liner of a two sock system.) I will be backpacking the Paria River Canyon for 4 days and needs a liner to help keep my feet warm and protect against blisters from the sand in the silty water. I am a little concerned about the seams on the edges if the socks. Has anyone worn these socks in hiking boots? Are they comfortable?

      i haven't worn them in hiking boots but I would be surprised if that would
      work with these, primarily because I don¹t' think the sock is shaped snugly
      enough to fit inside a tight boot without wrinkling, and that wrinkling
      might cause blisters.

      I have used this sock in maybe a slightly different environment. I have worn it on a through-hike of the Zion Narrows, wearing these socks, with no liner, in 5.10 Canyoneering boots. That was a two-day, 16 mile trek, with 60% of the time slogging in the Virgin River carrying a full pack. I have also worn them in a different style of 5.10 boot, navigating several technical Class III slot canyons where very cold water was one of the elements I had to deal with. I did not experience any undue wear and tear on my feet wearing these socks…either on the approach trails or in the canyons themselves.

      Hello,
       
      I have used those socks on many 2-3 day river trips. In fact, I use them exclusively anytime I paddle. You should have no problem using just one pair on your trip. 2 pairs can make life a little easier, although I don't believe that little bit of extra benifit justifies carrying the extra wieght/space consumption.
      You certainly don't have to wash them with soap until you get home, but, depending on your body chemistry, they may get a odor to them by day 4. At least rinse them with clear water 1X/day.
      They dry very quickly if there is low humidity, and high wind. Dry time will increase with high humidity and dead air. Here in Michigan, there is always dew, fog, or other moisture in the night hours in the river valleys.. I can still usually get socks dry by morning. Turning them inside out and drying the inside first is how I do it. I dont mind if they smell like campfire, so I place them by the fire sometimes (not too close).
      I have yet to find a sock this warm that dries as fast.
      Hope you have a great trip and that this info helps you.

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.

      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.

              Comments about NRS HydroSkin Wetsocks:

              I'm not sure what we did without these! When the air temps dip into the 20s our season is just warming up. Most of our winter activities are long attainment excursions on the local creeks for conditioning training. The hydroskin wetsock was the only missing piece of protection missing and has proven to push the cold air/water comfort level well into the 'toasties'. We wear these under a seals waterproof sock and then slip into the NRS Sasquatch boots. Fantastic. Sandwich a layer of wool in there and we'll be breaking ice on any given Central Pa water in total comfort this merry season.

                • Sup Boarding

                Comments about NRS HydroSkin Wetsocks:

                I live along the North Caolina coast (Wrightsville Beach area) and through at least the end of November I can go SUP Boarding without a wetsuit. The water is not that cold but with bare feet over a couple of hours my feet would get a little cold. I wear these wet socks without any shoe or anything else on my feet. I walk out in the water to launch my SUP board and of course some water gets in the wet sock but then after a few minutes everything is comfortable and not cold. I would not recommend these for walking very far without a shoe but for the short distance I walk they are wearing well. Last thought - when I get into rough water or lots of boat wakes on my SUP Board (narrow racing board) these wet socks let me "feel" the board better to maintain balance and control than any rigid sole footwear. I like 'em!
