Competition: Win a Pair of unisex Sealskinz waterproof socks from Sock Shop

win waterproof socksI love walking. In the countryside, along the coast, around towns. Anywhere really. Of course, it helps if the sun’s shining. Or at least if it’s not raining.

Since bringing Barney, our cocker spaniel into the family, I’m walking more than ever. That’s great. But the downside is that I have to take him out in all weathers. And walk through a lot of muddy puddles. And as a result I’ve discovered that a lot of my shoes let in a lot of water.

Step in some wonderful waterproof socks. I first got hold of a pair of Sock Shop’s Sealkinz Waterproof Socks when my eldest son headed off to the Brecon Beacons for some wild camping as part of his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award last month. Every other expedition he’s been on, he’s come back with blisters and wet socks. So I figured some heavy-duty help was needed.

The socks kept him dry through not only rain, but mountain sleet and snow too. And no blisters. So, needless to say, they’re more than a match for a walk in the woods with your dog. Which is why for the moment, they’re in my sock drawer thank you very much.

We’ve got together with the fantastic Sock Shop to offer you the chance to win a pair of unisex Sealskinz 100% waterproof mid-length walking socks worth £30.99.

  2. Your comment that the legs in the photo aren’t yours made me smile, Kim! I would be proud to have such shapely legs, give or take a little depilation, of course!

    I am a fan of socks and of the Sock Shop. They sell much more than any old sock and I am pleased to see that they stock unisex socks, too. I would much prefer to see more clothes and accessories sold as unisex.

  3. Perfect for my husband who cycles to work every day – rain, snow, sun, storms, hail – he has done it all !

  4. These would be perfect for my daughters boyfriend – he builds dry stone walls and is out in all weathers x

  5. I suffer from Reynauld’s which, as a distance runner, causes me all kinds of problems, so these socks would be perfect and would hopefully allow me to get back into long distance off-road racing which I miss so much

  6. I like Sock Shops selection, they literally have something for everyone I would wear waterproof one’s cycling

  7. I like Sock Shop because it provides accessibility to socks such as Sealskinz. Also because I spend a lot of time outside, and appreciate the outdoors type clothings, especially waterproof. Sealskinz waterproof socks appear great. Maybe if I could afford I would buy lots of Sealskinz waterproof and windproof socks.

  8. I absolutely adore new socks and love walking so a shop of wonderful socks is just my cup of tea and socks for walking are even better!

  9. Whatever kind of socks I’m looking for I can find them at Sock Shop. The socks shown here would be ideal for all my treks in the perpetually soggy Scottish Southern Uplands.

  28. I would love to win these socks for my daughter who is a keen member of The Ramblers. Her present boots are old and the leather has cracked in places so these would be amazing while she saves up for replacement boots!

  29. would love these socks from such a good shop for my partner who is a fisher man and always gets wet feet

  30. I would love these socks for those cold wet days of summer and winter that we always seem to get and still have to take the dog out for a walk!

  31. Always working outside in the the British weather, and these would be great for making the working day more bearable

  32. I too enjoy walking, no dog though and these would be brilliant for those puddles I can’t avoid and traffic seemingly throwing the puddle water at me. I would love to try a pair.

  33. I would wear them for the days when I work at an inner city farm. After it has rained, the horses get muddy (they seem to love rolling in mud!), then they have to be washed and even though I wear wellies & waterproof trousers, water often gets into my boots and makes my feet wet. Spending the rest of the day with cold wet feet is no fun, so it would be nice to have socks that keep my feet dry.
