When we use the term ‘waterproof’ for socks, it indicates that the membrane used in the DexShell lamination technology are waterproof. It does not mean however that you can submerge your waterproof socks in water or ride for many hours in the rain without experiencing some water ingress. The water may run into the socks from the tops leading to you then believing that they’re not waterproof!
However all of our garments will keep the worst of the water out and protect from splashes and any water that enters your shoe. Of course we have also developed socks using our DEXLOK® technology (cuff seal) that can stop water from ingress when you wade across river intermittently – so this is an option open to you.
