    Gul 0.5mm neoprene socks

    Could these be the answer to cold feet? Use titanium to reflect heat.
    I have just done the Mamores VK, and spectated the ROS. Got cold wet feet, and cold feet donít work too well, lose feeling and natural cushioning.

    I've used these for several winters:-


    For both running and cycling.

    Not the perfect answer but a sight better than v. pricey 'waterproof' socks & gloves that are definitely not waterproof.

    I guess those GULs will be technically superior; but at what price?

    Just answered my own question by googling:-

    £13.50 looks good value for the technical enhancement and 75% thinner material?

    Did not do much Pennine 'deep' bog trotting last winter but at last year's 3 Shires prize giving I did receive a spot prize of a pair of Inov8 thin nylon socks that performed incredibly well even in quite deep snow on Pen-y-Ghent and also on some very wet cycle rides.

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    Tried some Dexshell waterproof socks for the first time today on a run over Red Screes - with some thin Injinji's underneath - warmest feet I have had since summer - and despite wet shoes, the Injinji's - and my feet - were dry at the finish. I did try some Sealskin's on a few years back, but they were not remotely foot shaped and I did not buy them.
