Rated 5 out of 5 by KayakingQuig Extend Your Paddling Season
I live in the northeast and love to paddle. It gets tough after mid-October as the temps drop. I added these neoprene socks under my neoprene boots as an added layer of warmth. They work great and I was able to paddle well into November this year; there were snow showers around the last day I paddled. I'm looking forward to an early start to the paddling season with these.

Wasn't quite what I was looking for. They say they are insulated but they are not. Just really good Neoprene booties. They fit great and do (Help) keep your feet warm.

This is exactly what I was looking for! I use my Keen sandals to kayak on the lakes. Of course sand and mud get under my feet. I wanted a thin hydroskin socks to wear with my Keen sandals. These are thin enough so that my Keens are not too tight and seem strong enough to last. As other reviews mentioned the heels are alittle large but that does not bother me. I have only worn them around house so I hope that they stay up when I am walking in the water and mud. I am not sure about warmth, I only kayak in warmer weather, so will see next spring if they are warm. The medium fit me good, I wear a size 8 or 8.5 in womens shoes.

I wear these socks with my titanium booties as an added layer of warmth and protection from the cold water when kayaking. The socks don't have much stretch, which is why I give them 4 instead of 5 stars, but they are still great socks for water activities in the cooler weather.

I bought these to supplement my booties on my Kennebec waders and for using in my cheap river wading boots. Very comfortable and my feet actually got very warm in the river these past couple outings.

Bought these to wear with water shoes while kayaking. Performed very well, were comfortable and kept my feet warm. Would definitely recommend them to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nicknamer Hydroskin socks for kayaking
I haver a large foot, size 13 1/2, so I purchased the largest Hydroskin sock available. Tight fit, especially around the in-sole, but really does the job! Doesn't keep the water out, but does keep my feet warm, which was an issue before with early and late season kayaking in VT. Highly recommend it. Would like to see a larger size and a thin sole that would make it more conducive to using it as a slip on shoe as opposed to a sock.

Fit is tight to get into the socks, once on- they keep feet warm and offer some protection from elements.

I normally wear sandals or watershoes to protect my feet from oysters when I take my paddleboard into tidal creeks. I was looking for something to help keep my feet warm during the winter months. I tried wetsuit booties, but they were not as comfortable as my favorite sandals. These watersocks fit perfectly and let me wear my sandals during the winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinaMama Not a snug fit, but work under my Keen sandals.
I'm a paddler and I got these to protect my feet from my Keen sandals, which rub my toes raw when sand gets in them. The HydroSkin socks keep sand and gravel away from my skin, keep my feet warm in winter, and protect my feet from sunburn. After wearing, I just rinse them inside and out then let them dry. They're a bit roomy in the heel (I have narrow heels) but they do the job. I used to have some thin neoprene socks made by a different company, but luckily they don't offer them anymore as the NRS socks are a higher-quality product. If I don't leave them drying on my bumper then take off for work (which is what happened to my other socks), they will last me for years. One man on my dragon boat team just wears these socks as his paddling footwear, but I need the thick sole of the Keen sandals. I'm very pleased with my NRS socks and and recommend them highly.
