Comparable to Lycra, these soft Nylon Spandex Swim Socks from Sporti are perfect for those looking for extra protection from swim fins or water shoes.
Hi Carla,The Sporti Nylon Spandex Swim Socks are not waterproof and do not keep your feet dry. The socks are made to protect your feet when walking in the water and offer additional comfort when wearing swim fins.

I love this swim socks!
This is the second pair I buy from this brand. The first one was blue and with the chlorine, it fade over time and started to make some holes in the neoprene sole. That was probably my fault as I was walking out of the pool with the socks on and started to run in the shallow pool with the socks. I swim 5 days a week and use them all the time with my fins. It last for about 6 months so this time I bought black. In a couple of months, it will look grey but I like it regardless. I will be more careful now and make sure when I leave the water, the socks is off.I prefer this nylon spandex socks than neoprene. I used both before but the nylon spandex is a LOT more comfortable on my toes and feet. It feels I am not even wearing anything and the nylon spandex gives a cooling effect to my feet when in contact with the water, love it!
Fit: Feels true to size

I bought these for two snorkeling trips in Indonesia where we snorkeled twice a day for 4-5 hours per day, for about 16 days. Unlike others in the group, I never had a problem with my feet getting blistered or rubbed in any way by the fins. The socks have washed out beautifully, kept their elasticity, and were so comfortable to wear. I have had stress fractures in my feet in the past so these socks were just the cushioning and sun protection I needed. I found if I wet them before I put them on, the fins went on easier. I highly recommend them.
Nylon not strong enough
After the second time I used them, there was a hole in one of the socks
This sock has a padded sole that is not necessary for my use. I put them on when I use fins and that works well to prevent chaffing, but don't need the padding as I remove them poolside with the fins. The biggest downside is the weak elastic around the top edge. It stretches out quickly and the socks keep sliding down onto my heels. Believe they used to make these without the sole padding but that elastic at the top also failed after a few uses. Would be willing to pay more for a sock with longer functioning elastic top-edge. Silly to have to throw them away just because the elastic fails so quickly. Have not seen other socks here that are just thin nylon with a decent elastic top. Others seem to be heavier with neoprene and serve other functions.
How long should they last?
I work as a swim instructor so most of my time is spent walking up and down the pool deck and walking through the water. My feet were getting torn up and I thought these would help. The first day I put them on, they felt great, my foot was protected and they're lightweight so I almost forgot I had them on! Unfortunately, I wore them several days in a row and the pool deck and bottom proceeded to tear them up. Both socks ripped along the seam and holes appeared in the soles. I guess our pool deck is pretty intense, but I was hoping the socks would last a little longer than a week. Pretty disappointing.
Don't have to ever worry about fins rubbing feet. Sturdy thin material with reinforced heel and toe.
Nice swim socks
Very reasonable price! Made well! Great for handling rocks in the water, beach, ocean.
This product protects against flipper rub, keeping your feet nicely protected.
Perfect Full Fin Sock for women with small feet
Having small feet (size 4.5) is a real disadvantage. All my life I can get close, but never really a perfect fit. This is true of the TUSA fins. They needed a little help to stay snug. These socks are well made with a little padding in the toes and heels. The bottom is a black light foamy material. It is stretchy and the weight is not too thick or thin. Very comfortable. It is really youth sized: boys size 2 and women's 3-5. If black becomes available, I will buy it.
