  Some prefer latex socks
  Posted by: pblanc on Jan-26-14 8:23 AM (EST)

Fabric socks seem more common on dry suits than latex socks these days, but some people prefer the latex socks.

The fabric socks do not snug down around your feet so there are always pleats of fabric inside your shoes which some people find uncomfortable. The fabric socks also have seams. The seams get a lot of stress being walked on and it is not uncommon for them to start to leak a bit after a while.

I still have an old Kokatat dry suit with latex socks. I haven't used it in a while, but when I did I would wear a thin pair of inner socks inside the latex and a thicker pair of insulating socks on the outside to protect the latex.
