Additional TipsWhen you get a waterproof boot, make sure to use the right socks. Most waterproof boots today have a system in them, which is called the membrane. In reality, it is just a glorified Ziplock bag. Now, this membrane creates heat inside the boot, and our feet naturally sweat. They sweat more than you think that they actually do. So, if you are wearing a traditional cotton sock, that cotton sock is absorbing a lot of moisture, and at the end of the day, you can theoretically think that you have a little leak in your boot. But if you opt for some of the higher technology socks that are moisture-wicking and incorporate that into the boot, you will basically be able to channel or pull away from that moisture and not necessarily leave it in the boot to where we end up with a wet sock.
