Sounds like they will keep the water in and not out!

Could be good by for bikers in Scotland.

Don't really need these, my feet are waterproof.

So your toes don't go wrinkly after being in the bath a while then? And you're immune to trenchfoot I presume?

woosh

Buy 2 tins of cheap Aldi beans, ask for them in seperate carriers, eat the beans, wrap your feet in the carrier bags, put your socks over 'em and join the empty bean tins together with string to make a walkie talkie device. Jobs a good 'un

You've more chance of damaging your feet wearing waterproof shoes than having them in water for the same period. But I am unequivocal in my assertion that no water enters my body past the the stratum corneum, which is a thin membrane of mostly dead cells, rich in a protein called keratin and also coated with sebum, an oil secreted through hair follicles. Together they create a water-resistant barrier that protects the dermis, where the capillaries and sweat glands lie.

The prunelike effect on your hands and feet that you mention is a result of the keratin becoming waterlogged.

But as you probably already realise, I was simply making a joke in the first instance.

the trouble with waterproof socks is they all, even the really expensive ones, have a massive hole in...

Actually recent experiments have shown that the wrinkling may be an adaptation rather than just waterlogging, as the wrinkles increase grip.

Shame this, I was looking for some 50% waterproof socks.

I don't know why they are calling these 100% waterproof.
They are wetsuit socks, to be worn under your fins.

The ones in the link are just a neoprene membrane but these ones now are like the sealskinz, so they're like a proper sock with the waterproof lining - that's how it seems from the pics.
