Zone3 review of neoprene swimming socks

The Neoprene Swim Socks from Zone 3 are a must have for athletes swimming in open water, but they can be very useful to swim in a pool.

They keep feet and toes warm in cold water for zero-distractions when you perform. The tight fitting design allows minimal water entry and works with your leg-kick whilst swimming. A Velcro strap hold the socks securely in place while the longer length ticks into the wetsuit leaving no skin exposed.

The under-sole is made from durable, gripping fabric which helps to protects feet when walking to and from the water. There are three sizes available: Small to fit foot sizes from 3-6 (UK), Medium to fit 6-10 (UK), Large to fit from 10-13 (UK)

My Conclusion: as I am swimming every single day to lose weight, I want to be really careful to protect my feet and not catch any infections. The only reason I bought these socks is because they are quite easy to wear, durable (because they are made of neoprene) and they won’t split as easy as the latex swimming socks could.

Although they are designed for swimming in cold water, I thought they could be also used to protect my feet from infections in the swimming pool. Anyway, since I bought them, I haven’t used them very often in the pool (4 or 5 time); it takes a bit of time to put them on anyway and, if they aren’t completely dry are quite unpleasant to wear semi wet. Also, I felt a bit uncomfortable using the Zone3 with Finis Edge fins on my right foot, as it felt quite narrow, not to the extent to remove them, but swimming again for 40 minutes becomes really difficult.

I am happy anyway to own these socks and I see myself using them on my next scuba dive if the water is cold, or most likely on my next trip with paddle boarding in some smaller lakes or canals where the water is surely cold and dirty; thanks to their gripping under-sole, they can be definitely useful to maintain a better balance and not slide on the board  if the feet get wet.

I do not swim on lakes or in any places with cold water, therefore I wouldn’t recommend them for swimming in a pool clearly, unless you must wear latex socks and you have split them shortly thereafter. With these socks, you feet will be protected anyway from not having to touch the pool surface with your skin; just remember that water will get in anyway.

Finally, to dry them, I placed them once in the drum dryer for few seconds and it helped to get most of the water out, but to get them to fully dried it takes much more time as the neoprene is quite thick.
