Waterproof Socks FAQ

Waterproof Socks

How do I wash them?

For a deepest clean, turn your waterproof socks inside out and hand-wash in cool, soapy water. For quicker and less thorough washing, you can throw them in the washing machine in cold water.

How do I dry them?

Waterproof Socks should first hung to dry inside out, then turned outside in after the inside of the sock is dried. They can be dried near a heat source such as radiator, but NEVER directly on top or too close. Any heat over 50°C (120°F) could potentially damage the waterproof membrane.

For fastest drying you can tumble dry on a temperature low/cool setting if you absolutely need to, but for longer lasting life span drip drying is best.

Are they breathable?

Yes, the sock lining combined with waterproof membrane not only absorbs moisture and heat from the inside layer, but it also releases and evaporates heat, making our waterproof socks totally breathable!

Are waterproof socks worth having?

If you are outside a lot for work or pleasure, investing in a pair of waterproof socks is undoubtedly worth it. They keep your feet nice and dry and feel similar to regular outdoor socks.

What are waterproof socks good for?

Our waterproof socks can be used for all sorts of outdoor fun including hiking, walking, golfing, running, cycling, skiing, and fishing. Any scenario where you may get wet feet, these socks will keep you dry. Our socks are also sand-proof, making them great for beach, dirt and dune activities.

Can water seep in from the top opening?

Yes, it's possible that water can get into the sock from the top opening. Our waterproof membrane is only to the top of each sock, so any water coming in from the top might still seep in. Luckily our Active and Slim socks have Dry Guard Tap technology applied to them, stopping water from getting for at least 80% of our tested scenarios.

Now the scary topic- stinky feet. Do Drymile's Waterproof Socks feature odor control?

Yes, say goodbye to stinky feet! Our socks are all breathable. Depending on whether you go with the Slim, Mountain or Active model, our lining has either charcoal or another odor/wicking material knitted into the lining. This means that sweat is no longer an issue with our anti-odor technology!
