A staff favorite, the 100% waterproof and breathable Rocky Gore-Tex Socks are your foot's best friend, especially during those cold, frost biting months. Pair these with your favorite sailing shoes for the ultimate in wet shoe, dry foot comfort. Layer with a non-cotton sock, such as wool socks, for an insulating effect when you need added warmth.

If you’re looking for warmth, just slip this sock over top of a wool sock and it’ll have you head-over-heels hooked. Another great use for these socks is with summer sailing shoes or boots. Maybe a pair of offshore boots isn't in the budget right now — you can simply wear these under your racers, and BAM; makeshift offshore boots.
For waterproof socks we always recommend getting 2 sizes larger than your standard shoe size in order to accommodate a warm WOOL (not cotton) sock underneath. Keep in mind, even when going two sizes larger, these socks will not be loose and baggy and may still be a bit stiff to get on and off. That being said, make sure they are not too tight to the point of cutting off circulation. Just like any running shoe or ski boot, you'll want to make sure you can still freely move your toes. Having that little extra room will mean all the difference for keeping your feet warm and comfortable.
The Rocky non-slip, breathable, waterproof socks are the one article of clothing that you can ALWAYS find in my cold weather gear bag.
