Has anyone tried this pair of Stormsock????

I just got back from a ride, it was ok at the start... but could feel some cold started to come thru...
I know these are made to be Weatherproof (so-to-speak)
I wore these alone in my regular shoes and wore Gator Booties.
Temp was about 38-40 Degrees F (raining)

I might wear some other socks under these Stormsocks

Any words of wisdom?

I have been watching the list and looking at socks people have suggested. I was worried about that exact thing, the cold coming thru.

Suddenly I remembered the wool socks we used to use in the service and how they did a pretty good job of keeping my feet warm so I ordered 6 pair at http://www.eabco.com/USArmySocks.htm. I have been riding down to 27 degrees so far and they have been keeping my feet toasty warm up to this point in my Shimano bike shoes.

OK OK OK

I am taking them back!

For 22.00 I can get some UnderArmor stuff.

Those "socks" are only good for Waterproof... I have tried putting them over a thick regular sock... BRRRRRRR for get that.... Neoprene Booties work better!
