I'm so glad I broke down and bought a pair! They were, well... a little weird at first. You know that strange feeling of lint between your toes? Yep, that's the one. But within an hour, that "strange" feeling had dissipated. By the time I finally wore them hiking the first time, I no longer even noticed the difference. Here's what I did notice, though: No more blisters on my toes! It was absolutely incredible! I have a Morton's foot type with a bunionette, very slight pronation. All of that amounts to my toes sometimes sliding beneath each other ever so slightly, and WHAMO! blisters. The Injinji socks corrected that situation!
Additionally, I found I rather enjoyed slipping them on each time, because I noticed that ever-so-subtle separation of the toes. I began doing foot exercises and stretches years ago to help separate my toes (greatly helped with many foot problems). Granted, these socks are nowhere near the toe spreaders one would use, but even that fine separation is helpful if you are a person whose toes naturally want to crowd next to one another.
I use a pair of Smartwool liners on top of the Injinji liners. I also use the Injinji original weight hiking socks by themselves (no liner). Most recently, I picked up a pair of the Injinji compression socks for my post-hike recovery. Obviously, I'm a huge fan and a believer!
One more note: Though I've found the Injinji socks to work quite well on their own, I will often also coat my toes (and sometimes heels) with Hike Goo before rolling the socks on. Added insurance!
toe socks can not be beat for keeping your toes dry and warm... and, this is another quality Injinji product, made of good materials, very well designed and sewn, and a very comfortable, high performance sock... specifically. it is;
• a nice, thin, wicking base layer toe sock
• very easy to align and to slide over toes
• no toe seams! that is very, very nice and comfortable!
• no pressure points around the ankle or at the elastic trim at the top of the sock
• a moderate, comfortable compression around arch, which is a very nice attribute, both for performance and comfort
• very well made & high quality
• very durable and, hence, long lasting (13jul17 update)
notes regarding toe socks;
for those unfamiliar with toe socks, please consider the following;
• your toes sweat and stick together with regular socks, which is often the root cause in cold toes, and, subsequent, cold feet.
• though it seems counterintuitive, as we all know that mittens are generally warmer than gloves, because your fingers are together, rather than separate, keeping them warm, the opposite is true for toes and socks as the difference is that fingers do not sweat like toes do. so, when it comes to toes and the ever present sweating of toes, again, it is the opposite to fingers and when you keep your sweaty toes separated, it enables them to be dry and warm, for a more comfortable experience.
• most importantly, wicking toe socks are excellent as a cold weather base layer, as they keep your sweaty toes from touching and getting cold and they wick the moisture away, keeping your toes, and subsequently, your entire feet, dry and warm.
these liner crew toesocks also “wick” exceptionally well and, thus, keep your toes and feet warm... though these are not polypropylene, which is normally, by far, the best base layer due to polypropylene's wicking ability, the polyester weave on these liner toesocks do result in exceptional wicking and, as such, in addition to being very thin, these socks wick and dry out very fast.
in the cold weather (~10°-30°F) case, i found the Injinji to be the best toe sock and below, you will find a link to my favorite and highest recommendation, though this Injinji liner is excellent for these temps, as well.
• note - in the case of cold weather cycling, you still need windproof toe covers for your shoes, but the wicking toe socks will do wonders to keeping your feet warm by handling the sweating and keeping your toes and, subsequently, your entire feet warm... you will also need a great wicking top & bottom, which the Helly Hansen Polypropylene LIFA is the absolute very best. there are many sellers of HH polypro LIFA tops & bottoms, so they are easy to find here on Amazon.
in closing, the highest recommended cold weather base layer wicking toe sock:
