Yeah, I'd appreciate it... I'd rather not shell out the bucks for SealSkins, but I think I want to add something similar to my arsenal.

I've got all kinds of goretex and goreclone type socks and boots for hunting. I paid 12 bucks for my SealSkins new, on Ebay. I LOVE THEM. I've played in sub zero weather with those and a light cycling sock, in my Salomons (non-gortex model), and I was super comfortable, fetl nimble on my my feet, and got really good grip.

I played a round in my burgandy Doc Martens today...I wouldn't recommend them. lol

I have a pair of Rocky's water socks. They were a recent addition to my clothing lineup at the beginning of the year before travelling to Vichy, MO to play DaveMac's monster course. Not that it was pouring or anything, but it was the spring, and this land is pretty wild. It holds a bit of water. It was after that trip when I realized gore-tex shoes is only good in light dew situtations when it comes to shoes that don't go above your ankle. My shoes (a pair of xa pro 3Ds) were soaked while my feet were kept dry from the water socks.

They're easily the best $50 I've ever spent on any one golf item.

Hey Further -

Are you saying that my yet to arrive Salomon GTX Mid Riverteks will not be waterproof enough for other than fair weather golfing?

We went from a 2 week mowing schedule to a 3 week for our parks in KC, and there were days that my feet left wet because of the high grass.

If you get Sealskinz, stay away from the H2O Waterblocker model. They have a section at the top where the membrane is exposed on the inside of the sock... I guarantee it will tear when you are getting the socks off and on your foot at some point. Maybe not the first time but it will happen.

Found some Seal Skins on ebay for cheap. $20 and I couldn't be happier. Wore them in a tourney last weekend where it poured through both rounds. I wore non waterproof boots and my feat were still dry at the end of the day. Pretty good if you ask me. We'll see how they hold up through the fall and winter.

I just can't understand how much you guys like Seal skinz etc. so much. I've never seen anybody use them in person here in Finland.

Do you really use Gore-Tex shoes + waterproof socks? Why?
Or do you use some non-waterproof shoes+sealskins? I can't see any point using those, if you have have gtx shoes, they are waterproof guaranteed or if you have non-gtx shoes, they just get wet and really cold and can't be any comfortable.

Just find good, fitting shoes with Gore-Tex and use good technical non-cotton socks. For example X-Socks, they have different socks for pretty much any given sport. Those are pretty steeply priced (atleast here) but they come with 2-year guarantee and all of mine are still good. Sky Run and Air Force One are my personal favorites for golf or running (+all of their skiing socks)


E: After reading this thread more carefully realized that JR had already hyped X Socks.. So you gotta believe they are good!

Even the good Salomon shoes with gore-tex start to leak after a while. It's just WAY better with the socks too. Or I go with the vented shoes in warmer weather with waterproof socks. The waterproof socks are really the only way my feet stay dry all day through two rounds in the rain.
