Usualy wear above ankle footwear, mid boots
or higher Danner boots, should lower flat shoes be worn, then
an old pair of black socks or silmilar.

Cut off the foot and use the upper sock part as an over sleeve,
can do the same with old Gortex socks for wet weather,
some elastic shock cord with cord locks can give extra
hold and adjustment.

Hey Muddy,
I tried a few things like that a few years ago when i wanted to solve this problem. The sock idea would only work for a short time like 15 minutes until they ride up and expose your ankles. They also don't cover your laces to keep mud from caking up there and anything else small enough to fall through the tough like fine dry dirt.

Using any cord to keep it in place would kinda work but it would still move around. It would also look unsightly on your feet depending on how long you spend making them to look good.

For DIY'er that have time, its fun to play around but won't cover all the issues.

Our Bandits cover all the issues and will save anyones time. They keep everything out and save your socks, insoles, and footwear from getting ruined. Plus grabbing a pair of Bandits supports a trail builder that has volunteered for over 15 years building Trails, Pumptracks, Dirt Jumps and more for public parks in New York, Long Island.

Thanks for the feedback
Jim
