Surf Swim School Head Coach verdict:
I love these neoprene swim socks! They are a bit of a wriggle to get on but well worth persevering with in my personal opinion. They have been cleverly designed with external seams to reduce the risk of potential rubbing/chaffing. They are also a nice thickness at 1.5mm so they are thin enough to still feel the water, I also found that they didn’t adversely affect my swim position and I could still kick without my feet popping out of the water, a common problem with thicker or more buoyant neoprene socks. The best feature that I enjoyed was the compression fit. As a competitive swimmer I am used to squeezing myself into compression suits and reaping the benefits from doing so! These socks don’t claim to shave seconds off your PBs but you will feel the compression and I found it a comforting squeeze that helped me stay comfortable in the colder water for longer.
