Five Reasons You Need Waterproof Socks
If you’re cycling during winter, it’s vital to keep warm, dry and comfortable. While a good winter jacket and pair of tights should easily keep your core warm, keeping your extremities nice and toasty can be a little trickier. Although most cyclists opt to wear overshoes in winter to keep their feet warm and dry, occasionally, you’ll need a little more defence against the wettest, coldest conditions. With this in mind, here are five reasons you need a pair of waterproof socks
1. They improve comfort
It’s not hard to understand – your feet are far more comfortable dry, than wet. Similarly, by preventing water ingression, waterproof socks will also significantly reduce the chance of chafing and blistering.
2. They’ll keep you warm
Rainwater is often cold – icy in fact. By preventing cold water from ingressing into your shoes, waterproof socks keep your feet warm. Many waterproof socks, like the ones below, are constructed with merino wool too – which keep your feet nice and warm, even if it’s not raining.
