Replacing ankle gaskets with gore-tex socks?

Has anyone has done this themselves. Just got a pair of kokatat tropos bibs the gaskets are way too tight cant seem to get them stretched out enough and like the idea of a sock better.

A couple reviews said the tropos socks leak not sure why they put sock on their pants and not the bibs.

Should be just like dong a gasket. Use PB-300, hands down the best glue for gasket work.

but where are you sourcing the drysocks?
