Sealskinz® Mid-Weight Mid-Length Waterproof Socks
Keeping feet warm and dry is the key!
I had heard lots of great things about Sealskinz and finally recieved a pair for Christmas. First thing I noticed is they don't quite fit like most socks. More like a slipper, I suppose. With a foot that normally fits a 9 1/2 (US) shoe, the Large seemed a bit too big initially. However they stay in place quite well. With temps in the upper 30s F, they kept me plenty warm while cycling - in fact, warm enough my toes were a bit damp from sweat. And when the socks got wet from the outside I could tell that the outer layer was wet but my feet were actually quite dry and warm.
The fact that they seem a little loose is fine. As the temperature drops to the mid-upper 20s I was able to wear a liner sock with these and they fit just fine. With over two hours in the wind on a bicycle, my feet were plenty warm without any shoe covers.
I'm looking forward to wearing these hiking and it looks like these socks will be perfect for Cyclocross season.

You get what you pay for.
Dry feet are certainly worth a premium. Wore these in a mid-thirty degree ride including a water crossing and they performed admirably. Not sure I'll use them often, but invaluable when I need them.
