Wellys? Wellies? Wellington boots? However you spell it or say it, when you’re wearing those rubber rain haters and festival favourites, you need welly socks that are up to the task. Men’s welly socks - or any kind of long boot socks for that matter – need to fulfil one basic but important function. Welly socks need to fill those boots properly, and that means thick knits and long legs.
Loose boots usually lead to blisters, due to the feet constantly sliding around, causing friction damage. Thick welly socks fill out the boot, protecting you from the cold at the same time. Of course, wellies aren’t the only boots that need long chunky socks. Mountaineering socks and hiking socks fill much the same requirements and even ice hockey boots, riding boots and ski boots need longer-fitting padded socks, albeit with more technically-placed cushioning.
For extra warmth, and leg protection, longer knee-high welly socks can be worn with shorter length boots and not just wellingtons. Socks for walking boots, golfing socks and hunting/shooting socks are generally long leg, covering and protecting against the natural environment’s ability to cause abrasions from rocks, shrubs, and in the case of golf, errant golf clubs!
The great thing about men’s welly socks is that they’re super-efficient at keeping you warm. Thermal welly socks make a miserable, wet day feel much better, so pick good ones. Either go for the type that are heat holders, that can retain warmth in brushed pile inners, or pick naturally insulating merino wool socks or luxury mohair socks. And, if you want to make extra sure, go for a waterproof welly sock!
