I bike Commute and train year round with icy conditions being the only thing that keeps me from riding. These socks are the best I have ever owned and work well to keep your feet dry as well as warm. I find the Shoe covers do a basic job but, for shorter rides when it is not raining very hard. The combination of Shoe covers and waterproof socks keep your feet warm and dry as well as your shoes clean.
These work great.... They keep your feet dry and fairly warm even while splashing through muddy puddles. The only issue I have with them is that they are bulky. I had to get a half size larger shoe fit them in.
