Is choosing a rowing sock the ultimate geek’s paradise for fantasy shopping?  We decided to find out by running through the full list of different socks currently on the Rowperfect store.

Start with the All-Rounder Rowing Sock

If you choose one sock for year-round rowing – this is the one: Ultra Light Rowing Socks. It will perform well keeping your feet comfortable in most weathers. This ultralight and waterproof ankle sock with a high visibility yellow cuff is a simple and low-cost choice.

Additionally, your fun rowing themed red and green socks – port and starboard one for each foot.

Now for the Waterproof Socks

There are a couple of options. If you want an Ultra-Thin Waterproof Sock, this is your choice. It won’t keep your feet warm in cooler temperatures. However, you will still be able to wear the same size shoes. Designed by the experts at Dexcel. Furthermore, the socks are known as the thinnest waterproof socks in the world. Additionally, the ultra-thin fabric is very flexible, highly breathable, and lined with bamboo. As a result, they are antibacterial –  nobody wants foot fungus!

The Ultra-Dry sock has dry-release Merino Wool liners. The combination of quick-drying, moisture-wicking, and odor elimination – is a win-win-win. It includes a cushioned terry loop footbed for extra comfort. It’s a bit thicker than the ultra-thin sock.

You should consider the Crosspoint range if getting very wet feet is a problem. Two designs are available. The original Crosspoint Crew Waterproof Wool sock is “a sock that feels like a sock but protects like a rain bootie”. But also the 9% lighter Crosspoint Hi-Viz Crew Waterproof sock is an excellent choice.

Warm socks

Our easy-choice basic warm rowing sock is a lightweight style. It warms the soles of your feet using good old fashioned sheep wool in little loops (that’s the terry loop thing – it’s not a bloke in the pub).
