The trend today is to wear sun-protective clothing to cover our head, neck, arms, and legs. When you’re sitting on a kayak, the pants legs frequently ride up and expose your feet and ankles to a nasty sunburn - especially if you’re pedaling. Vincere Sports offers several thin neoprene "Sand Socks" to help protect parts of your skin where sunblock may be less effective.

Vincere Sports Grip Socks and Sand Socks review

As a Hobie kayaker, I had an issue with sunburn on my ankles when pedaling. I would wear Dockers and fishing pants for sun protection, but that left about 2” exposed above the Dockers. Sunscreen lotion did not help much - I think it was rubbed off in the pedaling action.

I looked at local dealers for a solution, and found boots and thick neoprene socks which seemed heavy or hot. When searching the Web, I discovered “Sand Socks” by Vincere Sports. I ordered a pair, and a pair of “Grip Socks”.

I tried them out this weekend while kayak fishing. The Sand Socks are comfortable, and the sunburn problem was solved. The neoprene heel, sole, and toes fit very well. The Lycra™ is light and cool on a 102 degree day.

Grip Socks are ok. They offer the same protection from the sun, but for me are less comfortable than the Sand Socks because the durable soles don’t mold to my feet as well.
