For those who tend to be outdoors often, waterproof socks are a must. They help keep feet dry while trudging through wet and snowy terrain and during unexpected downpours. These socks typically feature a three-layer design consisting of an external layer of waterproof nylon, an internal waterproof membrane and an inner layer made from elastane or spandex. While these socks tend to be a bit bulkier than traditional crew styles, they’re lightweight and breathable to prevent sweat buildup.

Below, we rounded up a selection of unisex waterproof socks that are perfect for hiking, biking, kayaking, and much more. Read on to shop them all.
