We’ve affectionately dubbed it ‘Kinder’s perpetual dampness’, the wet grounds that persist into the summer months… On those days when your path resembles a stream, or your feet are squelching with every step, it's always reassuring when you have a secret weapon to keep the water out.
Rana waterproof socks are designed for those days when the ground is wet and you’re not wearing fully waterproof shoes, whether you’re biking, trail running, and hiking; navigating puddle-littered fire track or traipsing through interminable bog. They look like normal socks, they feel like normal socks, but they give you full waterproof protection from the elements.
Rana redefine what a waterproof sock should feel like; after all, who wants to feel like they’re wearing plastic bags on their feet? The waterproof membrane runs throughout the full length of the sock to give you the best possible protection, but is one of the least obtrusive on the market – you'll forget it's there until you find yourself splashing through standing water out on Kinder. The low-profile, 'thin' fit means they don't take up loads of extra space or give you that squashed-in feeling in your shoes.
Waterproof socks are known for being sweaty, but 3-layer construction makes Rana different. The inner is 80% cotton which absorbs moisture to stop your feet from getting sweaty and feels super comfy next to your skin. The PU waterproof stretch membrane delivers 10k/10k performance for waterproofing and breathability, which means Rana socks keep the water out but still let you breathe.
A touch of spandex in the inner fabric makes the Rana socks incredibly stretchy. This means they're not only easy to get on and off, but are comfy and unrestrictive once you’re wearing them, leaving you free to pursue your adventure and splash through every puddle in your path whilst you're at it (if that's your cup of tea).

Really waterproof, amazing!
Also please try hypershellz waterproof sock, it's very nice too.
Christened these this with a 10km today through the local bog. Passed the waterproof test and nice and comfy. Replaced my previous pair of seal skins which the missus put in the tumble dryer - these feel much less like a plastic bag between two socks and feet were only slightly damp afterwards, seemed to breathe better.
If I were to be picky I'd like them an inch or two higher.
Otherwise really impressed so far.
Tough love sometimes hurts
I’m a massive Alpkit fan. I have lots of their stuff and I really rate (almost) all of it. But you know when you love someone you sometimes need to tell them the truth, even when the truth hurts? Here goes: Alpkit, these are not good socks. I really wanted to love them like I love everything else you make, and I gave them a really good go, but I’m afraid we just didn’t get on. They weren’t very comfy on their own but not thin enough to layer. I found the material stiff and scratchy and they didn’t really keep the water out. There, I’ve said it. I don’t want us to fall out, but perhaps back to the drawing board on these. Consider it an intervention; friends don’t let friends sell bad socks.
