Great Protection! Pack Small and Flat!
These socks are great for fun in the sun! I have size 12 (US) feet and ordered the large beach socks and they fit perfectly. The Lycra material is thin and lightweight and stretches around your foot for a secure fit, even with the additional weight of water when wet. The sizing chart provided in the item description helped me choose the correct size. The lightweight Lycra material feels more like a sports sock than a shoe and provides good protection from the sun and sand. The heavier neoprene sole weights the sock so it doesn't slip around your foot and provides additional protection for the bottom of your feet so you can confidently navigate rocks, coral, and hot surfaces. At the top collar of the sock is a velcro tab that allows you to secure the top of the sock to the bottom of your calf...I found the tab helpful but there was still a little sag in the sock though it didn't affect performance. I plan to use these while kayaking or on the beach during my annual trip to Mexico. These socks are a lightweight version of diving booties...I would certainly use them for snorkeling, but since they are lightweight they aren't really designed for diving. If you're heading to the beach or plan to engage in water activities these are very handy to have as they provide lots of protection and pack small and flat; easy to pack on top of a suitcase, in a backpack, or even in your pocket! Recommended. I did receive these socks for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. If you found this review helpful, please vote "yes" below!

Go with Small for Ladies size 8 foot.
The sizing chart is off: that's my only complaint. A women's size 8 is a Small in this beach sock, not a Medium. I got a medium and passed them to a friend with a 9.5 foot instead of bothering to return them. Bought myself a Small & it's good. A ladies 9 would be a Medium. 8.5 is tough - could fit a Medium if the foot is wide or you don't want a snug fit. Other than the sizing being off, the sock is nice. Adjustable Velcro at the ankle, good grip on bottom of foot, very light material and great at protecting feet from scorching sand and sharp rocks.

We are both happy with the price and quality
These sand socks look a little silly, but they keep my feet warm and dry during my fall sand volleyball league. I wear a women's size 8 and ordered the extra small. They fit perfectly. My husband wears a size 12 shoe and ordered the large. His socks were way too big, so he is exchanging them from a L to a M. We are both happy with the price and quality. Would order again.
