I've now put some good mileage on these socks and have found them to be every thing I require in a sock, i.e. comfy and no blisters or hot spots so far when using them with my Vivobarefoot trail shoes. Having 'toes' on the socks is a bit weird at first, but I now prefer these socks to any of my normal hiking socks for walking longer distances. They are an expensive sock, but I feel the price is worth it for the level of comfort I experience.
Socks looks well made and medium thickness. Felt soft and easy to put on. The first few steps felt a bit different, but within 200m walking distance, they felt completely normal. Only walked no more than 5-6 miles per trip so far, so can’t vouch for ‘blister-free’ properties on longer distances (20-30km per day) yet. Happy enough with these to have ordered an extra pair of liner socks for another occasion.
was able to previously walk for 2 hours before getting bad blisters under my small toes which are slightly deformed and lay sideways and tuck under the toe next to them. Tried these socks and attempted to walk the Purbeck Marathon Route. It wasn't until I got to around 7 hours (21 miles) that the little toes started to hurt and finally got blisters. I have since changed from running trainers to fitted trail shoes and tested them again last week with a 6 hour hike from Cranleigh to Ashington - no blisters just tired feet. Thanks Injinji these socks look to be life changing ! :)
I'd heard good things about these in the running community, but was always put off by the price. Who wants to spend 16 odd quid on a pair of socks?!
BUT, I am converted. The quality is exceptional. When you receive them you can tell they are well made and the material is lovely. I've been out on a load of 10 mile plus trail runs now and they've been very comfortable. They are likely to be my go to long run socks, so I may have to order some more!
Received these today , really comfortable to wear but thought the two smaller toes were a bit longer than they needed to be . Had a real comfortable run and found the toes were fitting better . Medium size fits me for my size 9 (UK) just fine . Gotta get some lightweight versions for the warmer weather now. Thought the socks was a bit expensive but the fit , quality and comfy feet are great.
Rather sceptical as to the comfort and quality of these socks when ordering but needed a pair for the Five Fingers shoes. Now amazed at both quality and comfort - certainly the best socks I have worn. Paired wonderfully with the FiveFingers and, after an initial period of 'that's odd', have become my firm favourite. Despite the odd glances and sarcasm from the family!
Yes they look odd and yes they are a bit interesting to put on but that said they are fantastic no blisters from three mud runs (wolf, Tough Mudder and a local one) in a month no dirt penatrating between toes despite being submerged in muck. I really rate these as a awesome trail running OCR sock because if the feet aren’t happy you certainly won’t be.
First off, they feel funny, not like normal socks, but after a while you get used to them. Bit of a pain getting them on as you have to get your toes into them one at a time. But after that they are very comfortable. Good price for them, and I will be trying them out with some long distance travel.
These are great. I wear them with my Vibrams when out running cross country or on roads. They fit like a dream, feel very comfortable, and feel / look well-made and of high quality. I will definitely purchase more of these at some point.
