    Hmmm, you know I hadn't considered that. Riding in Motocross boots has never bothered me plus I do like the protection they offer and for the most part they are pretty warm and dry, only when it's torrential to me feet get wet.

    I have a pair of Goretex socks (more like over socks) that I wear if it's going to be wet.

    I can't remember where I got them or when.

    They aren't real strong so I wouldn't wear them if I was doing a lot of walking.

    Keep my feet dry on long wet days when I am wearing my Endure boots.

    They are a high tech expensive version of plastic shopping bags on your feet.

    Golly David. That sounds positively weird. I haven't heard of that product before.

    One that I am aware of is the neoprene inner bootie or sock. Tech 8's have them, mainly for shock absorption, but ADpete got a 3mm thick pair from BFC to wear in his un-waterproof boots to keep the feet warm even when wet, and he swears by them too, plus the added padding for comfort.
