injinji Toesocks

Not too long ago, Kovas and I received some injinji toesocks to try out (read his thoughts on them at Midwest Multisport Life). The idea behind the toesocks is that the 5 toe seamless design provides proper toe alignment, protection from blisters and hotspots and superior moisture control. The separation of the toes also increases airflow keeping feet cooler.

The injini Performance Series Lightweight Toesock™offers a sleek and ultra thin interface.

The injinji Performance Series Midweight Toesock™ features a honeycomb design on top of the foot for added breathability and a light compression for proper fit. 
I have to admit, they felt a little strange the first time I wore them, and they do take a little getting used to. Like injinji states - be patient with your first wear and allow your feet to adjust. Once each toe is in its sleeve, it’s worth it. My feet felt great while cycling, walking, and running in the toesocks. The toe separation is especially nice on long hot summer runs. Biggest struggle is keeping the kids from swiping them:)

 The MANIFESTOE: 
 "...Forever committed to innovation that allows your feet to live and perform at their peak. 
 We are...a better way."

  4. I keep hearing great things about those socks, but I have to admit they freak me out a little.
