Brooklyn-based company launches bootie sock crowdsourcing effort
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 25 February, 2015 - Brooklyn, New York - If you've worn a wetsuit before, you know what a pain it can be to wriggle out of it when you're soaking wet, especially if your extremities are numb from icy water. Enter Wetsox, a thin, split-toe sock made from rashguard-like material that makes slipping in and out of your wetsuit and booties super easy.
Some surfers use plastic bags to achieve the same quick entry and exit—except, they rip. Dive socks are similar but don't offer the dexterous split toe bootie design that most surfers wear.
Wetsox is the only thin, four-way stretch sock built just for slipping in and out of your surf gear in seconds.
Available via crowd-sourcing website Kickstarter, Wetsox are made from a premium nylon, Lycra, Spandex blend, so they're quick-dry and smooth on your skin. Wearing Wetsox will also lengthen the life of your surf gear because it eliminates the need to pull, tug, yank, stretch, and do awkward yoga poses to get it off.
