Sealskinz waterproof socks for trail ultra running

Sealskinz Thin Ankle Length Sock

Reviewers say:

Good: Not ‘famous’ as specialist running socks, but an undiscovered gem. Totally waterproof, rendering redundant the useless Goretex trail shoes which retain water. Merino wool is warm – different thicknesses available. The layering of the wool and waterproof also seems to provide a good blister barrier as users report few injuries even over long ultras. Can tumble dry. Average life 2yrs with fairly heavy weekly use. Go for 2/3 pairs to rotate summer and winter.

Bad: Sizing is slightly odd. Go larger than expected – especially for tumble-dry shrinkage. Ankles seem to go baggy on the longer socks fairly quickly.

Price from: £21/$32
