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.

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 - Closeout:

          This pair was for my wife. We kayak year round in Florida. Winter paddling can be 36 degrees when you start and 80 degrees when you finish. With launches and our skinny kayaks you get your feet wet. Water temps are nice relative to the rest of the country but 50 degrees seems cold to us. These socks keep feet warm and comfortable in your water shoes. The bottom of the sock is smooth and does not have any pressure points. Once your feet get wet they stay warm.

                  Q:

                  I wear size 11 US sandles & shoes. I wish to know how shoes sizes relate to your Hydroskin wetsock sizes. For example is wetsock size L equal to shoe size 11 US? Is wetsock size M equal to shoe size 10 US and so on?

                  Do you have an Australian distributer for this product?

                    I also wear a US 11 and I always buy the Large size hydro sock. I'd say Large fits foot sizes from 10 to 12. Medium would be 7-9.

                    I wear large wetsocks over regular socks, and normally wear a 9.5 US shoe.
                    So I would assume you would go with an XL, which is what the sizing chart
                    shows.

                    I have a pair of these that I wear canoeing and rafting on cold days. They
                    don't irritate my skin, and they keep my feet halfway warm when they are
                    soaked in cold water. If I wear them and my feet stay dry, my feet tend to
                    get sweaty. If I thought total submersion wasn't likely or frequent, a pair
                    of Smartwool socks would probably be as good or better.

                    I would not recommend hydroskins under normal conditions, only when you
                    need to stay dry or warm. They may cause blisters if you wear only the
                    hydroskins. My wife and I wear Chacos with wool/synthetic (not cotton)
                    socks all the time while hiking, and they work great. We wear the
                    hydroskins over the socks when experiencing wet/cold conditions only.

                    The bottoms are covered in nylon fabric; they wouldn't provide much grip. Many SUP boarders find our Shock Socks, Item # 30038.01 and Freestyles, # 30017.03, work great for your sport.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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....

                    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.

                    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.

                    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!

                    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).

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    The next larger whole size. Socks don't stretch very well and you don't want
                    a tight sock on your foot for an extended period of time.
