    Bought these for our recent week-long tour of the Highlands as, having seen the weather forecast, I didn't fancy wet feet the whole way around. they're not cheap (25 quid or so) and I was a bit skeptical about how effective they'd be -- would they be waterproof? Would my feet just end up getting all sweaty anyway? they were actually really good -- we had a couple of days of solid rain and my feet remained pretty much dry and warm, while my g/f's feet (with some "water resistant" overshoes on) got soaked and cold. I had heard reports of water leaking down the top of the sock, but that didn't seem to be a problem for me. They're multi-layered and do feel a bit odd to put on, but once on feel comfy -- I was pretty pleased with them and I'm sure they'll be pretty good in winter, too.

    Thanks for the review.
    25 quid for a pair of socks, thought .... don't you need a fresh pair every day?

    they are Marino wool so don't smell.
    Excellent socks.
    They are worth every penny in my book.

    I didn't have to wear them every day (fortunately!), but as ianrauk says they have a merino liner so don't get too whiffy :smile:
