Rating: Scubamax 6oz Premium Lycra Fin Dive Socks Review - $9.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Kenneth Scheffler
These were perfect for protecting my feet while diving in Maui last month. The fit was perfect and comfortable. Anyone with sore and painful feet like mine needs a pair of these before they hit the water.

Rating: great idea
Reviewer: Karen Singleton  -  View all my reviews
Ive never used dive socks before, but I find that these make the boots more comfortable and I find that I slide around inside the boot much less once Ive been in the water and gotten wet. Makes a great addition to my gear.

Rating: good quality
Reviewer: Donna Ellins
Never thought about how easy these socks can make putting on a wetsuit and booties. Bending and putting on booties can be challenging when you have a physical limitation and this makes the job very easy and fast.

Rating: Great Socks
Reviewer: Jerry Morben  -  View all my reviews
We bought these dive socks last year and added another pair now. We used them for 50 dives last winter in Cozumel. They were perfect and very comfortable. They do not have seams that irritate your foot which is great.

Rating: Divers Socks....really??
Reviewer: Susan Grimshaw  -  View all my reviews
After over 12 years of scuba diving decided to try out these diver socks.....WOW.... the ease and convenience of donning and doffing our wetsuits became immediately clear....and then we asked ourselves why we waited so long to use these items....long story short....do yourself a good thing and try some dive socks....should be pleasantly surprised how much easier it will be getting into and out of your wetsuit...good deal...makes your dive life great!!

Rating: dive socks
Reviewer: Dianne K.  -  View all my reviews
We got these dive socks to keep our feet from getting sunburned when we snorkel or paddleboard. They worked great. I expect they will work well the next time we dive in warm water. Would definitely get them again.

Rating: Scuba boots, easy on, easy off
Reviewer: Robert C.  -  View all my reviews
If you have never worn a pair of lycra socks on your feet when wearing scuba boots, then you should start. These socks make putting on a pair of boots and removing them as easy as sneakers. Your feet will slide in and out very easily, no matter how much water may be in the boots.

Rating: Great Product at a great price- But not too comfy on their own.
Reviewer: Benjamin Shey  -  View all my reviews
These socks are great. They are well priced and quite nice quality. They make your feet feel a little warmer, but they also make putting boots on and off completely effortless. These arent too comfy when you first put them on because they arent really a sock shape and the seams are thick and you can feel them on your foot... but once your in the boot you forget and it feels nicer and more comfortable then with no socks. Highly recommended.

Rating: A must have
Reviewer: Jason C.
I have always laughed at this accessory, and always thought it was COMPLETELY unnecessary. But like I tell all my dive buddies, its the best money I have ever spent on something so trivial. Any wetsuit diver, snorkel finatic, cold water or tropical ocean goer, if you use open fins with boots these will make your life so much easier and worth every cent. Makes sliding on boots ( any thickness / style ) smooth and easy. And taking them off even smoother after that long dive were taking wet heavy exposure suits off is exhausting and annoying.

Rating: Dive boot socks
Reviewer: Robert Chilton
These socks are perfect and a must when putting on wetsuits. Ive been diving for over a year and have been on over 50 dives, unfortunately I only bought these ten dives ago. Good fit for my Henderson and Aqua Lung boots. I dont know about longevity, but they seem to be lasting so far.

Rating: Just what I needed!
Reviewer: katrina m.
I bought these socks to wear under full foot fins for protection from chafing. They worked very well! They held up with me walking around on a dock, on a sandy beach and on a textured boat deck between dives. My feet came back from vacation unscathed! The socks fit my Womens size 9 feet very well.

Rating: They serve the purpose
Reviewer: Zdenek Nagl  -  View all my reviews
These socks are made of sufficient thickness of material, compare to some super thin ones I had before that fell apart after one trip. The stitching is a typical fast and cheap production level, without trimming. A nice improvement would be a curved sock shape for a better fit but they do the job in my case to protect skin from rubbing on stitching in my poorly made booties. Turning the cocks inside out further improves comfort.

Rating: really low profile boots
Reviewer: ricky f.
after reading the other reviews on the socks running a size smaller than normal. I ordered one size smaller, i normally wear a 12, but i ordered an 11. I am glad i did, they fit perfectly. So order one size smaller, they are well worth the price. and are perfect for running around on the deck of a dive boat, they have a rubber bottom sole.

Rating: Ocean Quest 6oz Premium Lycra Fin Dive Socks
Reviewer: Jayadi Kusumah
I wished I knew these socks long time ago. Once you put on these socks, donning on and off your wetsuit and your dive boots are so much easier. Also these socks prevent your feet from getting blistered when you have to dive 4-5 times a day for more than a week. I will buy them again in a heart beat.

Rating: Theyre lycra socks, what else do you need to know
Reviewer: Rick B.
I like to use lycra socks because they help when donning a wetsuit. The make your feet slide through the neoprene much easier. These are thin and unlined, so they shouldnt cause you boots to feel any tighter. They seem well made for a fairly low cost.

Reviewer: Patricia M.  -  View all my reviews
I ordered and wore these socks with the Zipper Dive Boots. They added to the extra comfort of the boots while in the water and kayaking! So far Ive only used them in Costa Rica...the water was warm. Im sure both products will give me great protection in every aspect of use! The socks wash up and dry nicely. Pat

Socks fit well and are sleek, but the top seam (around the ankle) has started to come undone after one wash and four uses. They will still do the job, but the quality is kinda disappointing.
