Anyone ever try these inside MX boots? Seal Skinz

Recommended Posts

I took a flier and bought a pair of these off Ebay.  I wear MX boots and want to keep my feet dry if I get caught in the rain.  These seemed like the best cheap option.....we'll see!

Haven't tried them either but many have confirmed they're great for adventure riding in heavy downpours so they must be good!. Go ride in a hurricane and report back! 😉

I have used shorter version for commuting by bicycle in Seattle. They work ok, but the heart pumping aspect of a bicycle inevitably meant sweat and clamminess inside socks. It will be entirely different on a moto. Clammy and cold will be your challenge with them.

  Just saw them on the sale rack at whistle workwear.  50% off reg 49.99 us. Of course they only had small and med.

 

Have used their other products and were water proof till the seams start leaking.

How about this?

 

Trust me....I thought about that option.  For $35, I thought it was worth it to give the socks a try.  We'll see.

Sealskins in MX boots you can't go wrong. I now also use the shorter ones in my work boots.

Just don't wash in regular washing detergent ( I stick mine in the washing machine with no detergent, had them for years)

Awesome.  And thanks for the tip about washing without detergent.  I'll probably hand wash them....

I have a different type of Seal Skinz socks for in hunting boots . Tested them by standing in a tub of water 6-7 inches deep , my feet never got wet. Not sure how the MX version would be but the lack of breathing does collect sweat if exerting yourself but I wear a polypropylene liner and they're much better.

Oh, I'll have extra socks...a pair for each of the 8 days of the trip, but I can't go through them all on one day of rain.  🙂  And once the boots get wet inside, dry socks don't stay dry very long.  🙂   I'm not sure how thick these sealskinz are, but maybe I can wear regular socks under them, to keep them clean?

Oh sorry I didn't realize we were talking trip here... I just meant day to day rides. Yeah tho you should be able to wear regulars under them...

Yes I wear cotton short sock's underneath, no problems.

Good deal. I guess it just comes down to how much extra room you have inside your boots.
