Good sock for Kayak or SUP
The fit seems to be an issue in most of the reviews so I will address that first. I am a female and usually wear an 8.5 or 9 in athletic shoes. By the fit chart I should have ordered a small but I purchased the medium and the fit is correct. There is room for a light liner sock but not for heavy wool or a dry suit. They have enough sole to manage walking on some rocks and sand but I would not trust them over oyster beds. There is padding on the bottom but when used on a stand up paddle board they still allow a good feel and grip of the board. Great "socks" and good value.

Great summer paddling boot
They call it a sock, but it's really a wimpy boot. The neoprene and rubber sole are thin enough for summer use, but thick enough to take a little abuse. The low profile makes for a great fit inside a tight whitewater kayak. Sizing ran tight. I'm usually a 8.5 and ordered the 9, my toes are pressed right up against the tip of the boot. Since they are neoprene, this doesn't seem to cause any discomfort. I borrowed a pair of 10s from someone else and they fit perfectly.

Awesome Kayaking Shoe/Sock
Very Comfortable! You won't have to worry about these not fitting in you boat or cramping your feet! I've done a lot of walking on rocks, asphalt, sand and these hold up great!

Soft & Dry
These are extremely comfortable. Can walk around in them if need be. Good fit around ankles. Slightly roomy in the foot, but it may just be me. Pretty durable. Don't keep water out, per se, but drain well to allow comfort after they've dried some. Keep you warm in mild chill and still comfortable in the heat. I recommend for your next whitewater or recreational experience.
