i really, really want to like these sock. The idea seems great but in practice i just can't seem to get them to work for me. The sock fits well in all areas except the pinky toe on each foot. There is a lot of excess material on my pinky toe on each foot. During my first (and last) run with these socks, I ran a pretty brutal trail for only about 8 miles and my pinky toes were killing me!! At the end of the run, i took off my socks and my toenails were so sore. A few days later you could see the blister that had built up under each toenail and after that i got the dreaded black toenail on each foot. Mind you, this is the same pair of shoes that i've worn on the exact same trail for an entire 50K with other socks. When i used these socks, however, i couldn't even last 10 miles. The next day, I went back out in my normal drymax trail socks, and was able to run the exact same trail in the exact same shoes with absolutely no progressing problems. My nails didn't get any worse during that run but were still damaged from the prior day.
On top of all of that, after only an 8 mile run, the sock was starting to pill really bad between a few of the other toes. It was only an 8 mile run!!! wtf.
This is my first experience with toe socks. I wanted to see if there was a sock that would not bunch under the middle toes of my right foot on my 4 to 7 mile walks. I bought the Injinji Unisex Multi-Sport Midweight Crew Socks along with these Mini Crew socks. I have done several walks with both of these socks. These socks are not the most comfortable socks, with mainly irritation between and beneath my toes. These Mini Crew Socks are even less comfortable than the Crew Socks.
Rubbed a blister on the bottom of my third toe. Only wore them one day, walking around the house and no running. Friction between sock and toe. I would like to report I love the sock, except my toe hurts.
My shoe size changed and my shoes started rubbing my feet really bad so I picked these up and still got blisters although not as bad as with the cotton socks I was using before. Then, I picked up some Darn Toughs after using these, they solved the blister issue and introduced me to merino wool, I doubt I'll ever wear these again...
