Whether you want to keep your feet warm, cool, or dry, we’ve got the proper selection of fishing socks for you.
Natural and synthetic fabrics are used in the manufacture of socks.
Natural materials are:
- Wool which is thin, durable, and hypoallergenic fiber, providing excellent thermal insulation. The more wool is in the socks, the warmer they are. Wool wader socks are suitable for high activity in cold weather.
- Cotton which is a fiber that is made up of 90% cellulose. The key feature of cotton fishing socks is hygiene. Cotton is breathable, moisture absorbing, and comfortable. Such socks are pleasant to wear, soft to the touch. They don't cause allergic reactions.
Synthetic materials are necessary to ensure moisture-wicking properties. These fabrics improve the physical characteristics of fishing socks such as wear-resistance and a secure fit on the foot.
We provide socks which are made of:
- Nylon which provides high wear resistance and doesn’t absorb moisture.
- Spandex which is an elastic fiber improving the quality and comfort of knitwear. The main advantage of the material is its elasticity.
- Polyester that gives the socks elasticity, strength, and durability. The fishing socks don’t rub off longer and don’t lose their shape. The material is easily washed and keeps color well.
Ice fishing socks with high thermal insulation retain warmth inside, quickly absorb and remove moisture to the outside, keeping feet dry and comfortable.
Fly fishing socks with a medium knit provide freedom of movement. Flat seams don’t chafe the feet. Such models are very soft, non-squeezing, and most of them are low.
Do you wear socks with fishing shoes?
Many people will go for whatever is convenient for them. If it's uncomfortable for them to wear socks with shoes, that's okay.
However, the main risk of not wearing fishing socks is that it increases your chances of developing infections. When you wear shoes without socks, there is no layer of material between the foot and the shoe to absorb sweat or moisture.
Walking barefoot around the house is relatively safe. But when you go outside, you expose yourself to potential risks that can be dangerous. Without proper foot strength, you risk losing gait mechanics, increasing your risk of injury.
