The 10 Best Waterproof Socks
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2017. If you spend any time in damp or downright wet environments, then a good pair of waterproof socks can save your feet. They'll keep your lower extremities dry and warm by resisting water from without and also by wicking away sweat. There's no shortage of styles available, either, so you can find something to fit your personal taste and suit the type of activities you prefer. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

We liked the look of the Bluelasers Ultralite Mid-Calf, but due to concerns over availability, we decided to remove them. After some consideration, we swapped the Sealskinz MTB Mid Length for the Sealskinz Mid Hiking; although they're both from a well-respected brand, the latter seem to fit just a touch better, making them the go-to for many wearers. We also looked at many choices from Showers Pass, another leading favorite brand, but we ultimately decided to leave the Crosspoint Hi-Viz, as there aren't many bright options that compare. Finally, we added the Rocky Men's Gore-Tex. They offer durability and waterproofing you can count on, even though they look something like booties and not sleek, stylish hiking socks. (If concern over looks is higher up on your list than extreme waterproofing, we'd recommend the Randy Sun Unisex.)
