Like I said, I ordered a size too large than I should have, but I decided to take them on a practice hike anyway. My friends and I went to a local state park and hiked for about 3 hours, covering over 4.5 miles up and down hills, and also trudging a LOT through creeks and shallow rivers. I have to say, I was really impressed by the socks. They kept my feet dry and comfortable, and I didn't develop a SINGLE blister. The day high was about 85 degrees, and the socks weren't too hot for the hike. The socks also covered my lower legs/ankles well, making it easy to walk through the brush. However, if you step in water that goes above the sock level, water WILL get in the sock, and once it's in, it can't really get out. However, my feet were still comfortable and I didn't even know there was water in the sock until our hike was over.
I would recommend these socks! I am actually going to order a longer pair in the correct size, but I'm keeping these ones to give to my fiance (who is a size 12). Overall, good product!

They worked fine the first night. 12 hours of slightly sweaty but not rain-water-soaked feet.
When it utterly heaped it down, I did get wet feet.
They're ok, I also have
I think the aquaseals are better but the length is annoying if you have a thick calf and these are considerably cheaper.
I'm still looking for the perfect sock!
Wife loves them, wearing them in the trainers for walking and running in the woods. So I can't actually say they are mine any more.
Her trainers are drenched within minuites, and feet are dry as the fabric is breathable.
For tougher wetter conditions get the Sealskins: more expensive though.
Also took them on a few mud runs but the problem there is once they fill with water it stays in (although the first time I had to properly swim they actually kept my feet buoyant so I comfortably back stroked across the pond!) so higher risk of blisters and for the last two have switched to socks recommend for fast drying rather than waterproof.
Found these to be a great alternative to the more expensive brands on the market and they also have a lot of different styles and lengths so you can find one that will be for you!
After 18+ months of *hard* use they have now become more water resistant than fully waterproof but I feel this is a good life spand for what they have done. Think these ones will last out this winter's BMF sessions before being retired and replaced.
Recently, I completed 3 cross country races with them and overall it did a good job. I definitely will use them.
Of course, I feel a little cold when I run through puddles but when I finished my runs I didn't have any water inside.
My main reason to give a try was that my feet are cold in winter and I don't like to deal with wet and cold feet together.
I used for example a track spikes shoes for the muddy run, which is definitely not a waterproof shoes, and it was a really good run with these socks.
It doesn't do a miracle for you but it helps keep going. Try to imagine when Rocky Balboa did a sweaty run with his jumper. If you believe there is a big difference between 'a jumper like that' and technical top/t-shirt then you will appreciate this socks. But if you care more about complete a training than what you wear then just buy what you usually would do.(because they are not cheap if you need 5 pairs etc)
The only downfall we have found is that these socks do not like to dry very easily and take a very long time to completely dry out. If you ride every day you would need a few pairs to ensure you had a dry pair each day.
I would recommend them and will be purchasing more pairs for my hubby
