Showers Pass Crosspoint Mid Calf Sock $34.95
Begone soggy toes
Unexpected rain often leaves your toes squishing in socks and feeling prune-y at the end of the ride. And, shoe covers aren't exactly an accessory that we throw into our jersey pockets. Leave it to Showers Pass to create the Crosspoint Mid Calf Sock.
Showers Pass is located in Portland, Oregon — a city that is no stranger to rain. Even so, if there is a glimpse of sun, you don't want to load your pockets with extra rain gear. For these days, the Crosspoint sock functions as a waterproof layer to keep your toes dry. Constructed from Artex, a breathable, three-layer fabric, these socks really are waterproof. Sure, your shoes may get wet, but if you're like us, we prefer to wear shoes we don't care too much about in questionable weather anyhow. The socks are knit in two layers. The exterior is tightly knit to reduce wear and they feature a Coolmax FX lining. This lining wicks moisture away from your so that your feet stay dry from the inside out as well. After all, the only thing worse than wet feet, are sweaty feet.
The socks feature a knit band that holds them in place and reinforced heel and toe. The mid-calf height provides maximum coverage and closes the gap between your shoes and tights.
The Showers Pass Crosspoint Mid Calf Sock is available in sizes Small to X-Large and in the color Black.

What community has to say
Waterproof so far......
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have recently purchased the showers pass cross point waterproof sock. After taking the sock out of the box, I noticed that the socks appeared to be of different material (synthetic type). Nothing wrong just different from wool or cotton socks that I'm used too. The socks are not thick socks and appear on the thinner side. I have tested them this morning on a very wet, rainy ride with lots of standing water. I wore them with my Shimano MT88 mtb shoes with no covers on and feet remained totally dry. The outside layer of the sock does get wet due to the water inside my shoe. It does feel like your foot is wet as you move it around inside the shoe but again stayed dry. I would recommend pairing this waterproof sock with an inner wool sock to keep warm. The temp I rode in was around 45 degrees and my foot felt a little cool possibly from the sock wet on the outside. So if you ride to work like me, you will need to pack another pair of socks. I do ride a mountain bike with knobbies so flat road speed is not 15-20mph just FYI. Downhill is were my feet got a little cool. At 45degress though with just a wool sock on and dry, my feet remain warm. Overall, I would definitely recommend these socks for bike riding in the wet. Time will tell how long the waterproofness last.
