    Had anyone ever tried these? Do they keep your feet dry under heavy rain conditions? What about stepping in puddles? Just a few questions I had.

    I would imagine your feet would sweat inside them, negating the benefits of water proof socks in the first place

    No.

    No.

    I walk around them, when possible.


    There is no such thing as a completely waterproof boot but you can buy a good pair and then spray them with a waterproofing substance.

    Here's an idea. I'll just toss it out here: How about better shoes?

    Who cares about wet feet when it's raining. Wet feet at 0 degrees is another story.

    When you are out delivering in frozen slush your feet will get wet no matter what you wear.

    You could wear your boots like I did when I was kid in the winter. Slip your socks on, then slip some bread bags over your feet and then slide your foot in the boot. Boom!! Waterproof!!

    I have been using them for years. It's basically made from wetsuit material. I wear a pair of socks and then put them on. I only use them when absolutely necessary, and with so-called waterproof boots.

    I would suggest going with smart wool socks personally. They will keep your feet warm wet or dry.

    Been there done that as a kid. Water proof boots creates the same problem as wearing a raincoat when it 80 out....
