There is nothing in the world worse than cold, wet feet. Let’s say you’re out walking around in sneakers or brown work shoes and get stuck in a rainstorm. At first you say “meh, a little rain never hurt anyone” until 10 minutes later you’re a shivering, miserable mess. Depending on your footwear choice that day, the the first part of your body to succumb to elements is almost ALWAYS your feet. It sucks.
Showers Pass waterproof socks are here to change this agonizing experience. The Portland, Oregon- based cycling outerwear company’s sock technology is being lauded across the Internet as a game-changer for the footwear game.
So what makes these better than other socks? A three-layer system that Showers Pass describes as follows:
Our socks are fully waterproof thanks to 3-layers: a wear resistant knit exterior (feels like a regular sock), a waterproof breathable Artex membrane, and a Coolmax FX moisture wicking anti-bacteria lining. The result is a sock that feels like a sock but protects like a rain bootie.
In other words, it’s NOT like putting a condom on your feet. These bad boys actual breathe.
You can grab a pair on Amazon, where two versions are for sale. The neon yellow ones are rad AF, IMO.
Showers Pass Crosspoint Waterproof Crew Socks for $28.99 – $35.00
I’m kind of shocked they’re only $35. Durable, Gor-tex waterpoof outdoor hear is usually much, much more expensive.
