I 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.
These thin, low weight mid-length socks will be your feet’s best friends in any outdoor, wet weather activity. Camping, trekking, or just walking the dog. Waterproof and windproof, they’re designed and made in the UK to Sealskinz ADD (Aqua Dynamic Design) principles with a patented Stretchdry technology – resulting in a flexible, close fitting sock with a comfortable merino wool lining, ribbed leg with elasticated cuffs, ankles and insteps for a supportive, comfortable fit, with blister-resistant hand linked toes for smooth seams.
