Many of us have to deal with the dreaded dance of fighting with our wetsuit and booties in a life and death struggle to remove our wetsuit after a day of surfing. A few times, I almost felt as if I had broken my fingers trying to pry my booties off my feet.

Then I came across this product called WETSOX. WETSOX have one thing that the old plastic bag trick can not beat. They stay on your feet until you take them off. Even better is the fact that they are the length of tube socks which ensures the legs of your wetsuit slide on and off easily as well.

So to my friends in cold water locales…A portion of your struggle is about to end!

    First, great idea but it still doesnt help me in dragging my front toe with those silly things on. I hate booties.

    Second, don’t show a tumbleweed going across the screen at the end of your commercial. Makes one think that the product is dead before it hits the water. Pun intended.

      You need to build up that wimpy upper body Mr. H.! That will solve your toe issue.

      As for the socks, you can use them without the booties too. Which would be 4 days out of the year for you! Just slide the suit on and then pull off the socks and go out. Tah-dah!!

      BTW…Sending you an e-mail shortly bruddah!

  2. Do they make your feet sweat or does the water still get into through them?

    • 1stpeaksteve says:

      Water still gets through them. They are not as tight as say neoprene in a wetsuit but more dense than a lycra shirt. They do have one model that is even thicker that gives off more warmth for your feet.

      Kind of thinking about it…I bet they could be worn on your feet and under swimfins if you were diving too. I do not know about using them for running in a wet environment that you would not want your normal socks to get soaked. …Just brainstorming what you can do with them!

      I hope that helps!

    It’s not really a great product if the water still gets through them.

      They are not designed to be booties. The booties are what keeps a portion of the water out. These are to provide an easier way to remove your wetsuit and the booties which adhere to your feet.
