I often have trouble with the balls of my feet hurting due to Mortons neuromas. I have come to believe that it started with my toes being bunched together from tight socks and small toeboxes on my shoes. It was easy enough to buy shoes with wide toe boxes. But buying socks that were big enough to allow my toes to spread out but not so big that they bunch up in my shoes was a little difficult. These toe socks can be purchased in exactly the right size. They don't bunch up or rub. And they feel like a second skin. Very natural. Now I do get lots of funny looks when I wear them with flip flops, but I see it as an opportunity to talk about how wonderful they are. My only regret is that they don't come in more colors or in a pant sock to be worn with dress shoes...

I wish I had these years ago!!
i am a 54 year old woman, a fitness profesional and a long time ultra runner. I also do livestock work outside many hours a day. I have suffered from Plantar Faciitis flairs for years and in the past 2 years I have been having hammer toe issues. I had gotten a pair of Injinji socks in a race bag and just put them away....TOO WEIRD. But when my toes started to bother me I got them out and was pleasantly surprised how good they felt for my feet. My doctor was amazed on how my toes are straighter and my feet stronger. I love these socks! They wear like iron, there is a color selection, and I get a fun reaction from anyone who sees them on my feet.(Someone called me Kermit the Frog in my green ones!) I would recommnend them to anyone.
Might look strange but they feel great.
The Injinji socks are great, I first experimented with two pairs to see how they worked. I had been having problems with my feet getting hot and sweaty in all kinds of sports socks from heavy padded cotton to "wicking" sports socks. I was also having issues with blisters. All of those went away with the Injini socks. Like I said in the tag line... they might look strange but they feel great.
I wear my injinjis, I have 8 pairs now, whenever I run. Whether the distance is a short 4-5K run or a longer 10 to 20K I only run in my injinjis.
My Favorite Socks
Love the black socks. Stick with one color, the multi color have seems on the bottom of the sock making it very uncomfortable. Black are perfect (doesn't show dirt or wear) and toe socks are comfortable with any footwear. Now only if they made dress socks I'd be happy wearing my toes socks every day of the week. I use them for CrossFit, hiking, running, walking, virtually any activity and I LOVE them. Like I said, multi colors look cute - just not practical. Waisted money on two pairs and could not wear them....
Socks with toes?
Ok, so these have been around for a while and I resisted them, even though I am usually a first adopter and I believe comfort starts with the feet. Well, I finally broke down and bought a pair, and I was pleasantly surprised. I'd wear them every day if I didn't already have a favorite brand of socks (Puma, if you're wondering, they make the BEST). There's something quite hard to describe about the feeling of wearing these socks, but its very nice.
Interesting, nothing special
I'm always interested in trying new gear and seeing how it fits into my workouts. I thought these socks might actually be cooler and more comfortable because of the spacing of the toes and wicking material between them. I didn't notice any heat advantage. They were comfortable enough, but not especially so.
The one problem I found with the socks is that they made my shoes fit a bit tighter around the toes. I'm borderline wide anyway, but with these socks on I experienced some chaffing, both while walking and running.
Sweet runs with no toe rubbing
Slip them on your feet and your first sensation is a tad weird but after that I swear your toes are in heaven. I run marathons in these puppies and they help reduce sweat, blisters and they even give me a sense of extra speed and endurance (they give you added room or the sensation of additional room on the forefoot and you sense your toes more...if that makes sense). Basically you feel like you're running barefoot in your shoe but with added comfort. You won't be disappointed.
Dry heat runner
El Paso, Texas
I only run in these socks. At first, it feels strange between the toes, but after the first mile you don't even notice them. I've worn them in 10km to 30km runs without any issues. I've had no hotspots or blisters in each occasion that I've worn them. They're now my go-to socks for all long runs!
New running socks
First I get blister on my 2 small toes on both feet due to them rubbing each other. Tried bandaids, blister sprays and nothing works. Gave this sock a try doing an 8 mile tempo run on the treadmill and it was awesome. Not only did it not make my toes blister up between each other, but it kept my feet dry, not sweaty and its really comfy. Plan on buying a couple of more pairs for the upcoming spring/summer runs. Saying bye bye to my other tube socks!

Great Blister Prevention
Bought these because the surface we run on at our base in Afghanistan is covered in fine dust which worked its way in through shoes and socks to cause bad blisters between my toes due to the grit. Since trying the Injinjis, I've had no blister problems on runs up to 10 miles long, through "moon-dust" up to 4" deep, in 90+ degree heat. Fit is true to size and they're holding up well in this environment. Worth every penny!
Tried one pair and came back for more
I often get blisters under and between my toes so I bought one pair of these to try them out. They are SOOOO comfortable. I'm not really sure how to describe it, but it seems like my toes are being "stimulated" when I wear them - almost like getting a foot massage all the time. I now have 8 pairs and wear them all the time. Unfortunately, due to an injury, I have not been able to run in these yet, but am optimistic that my blister problems are over!
Good Performance, low durability
I liked this product for the first few weeks. The socks are comfortable and definitely separate the toes. Never got a blister. They also never slid down under my ankle. Only problem was durability. After only a little over a month, they developed a hole in one of the toes. I've never had a hole form that fast on any socks. Somewhat disappointed. Otherwise I liked them short-term. For the money, not worth it over regular socks.
Wierd but comfortable
This is my second pair. I bought my first pair because I was developing bad blisters on my middle toe. I wear these specifically on my long runs and haven't had a blister since I started wearing them. They tend to feel wierd when I first slip them on, but once my feet are in my shoes I don't notice them at all.
St Louis, MO
I'm currenlty deployed in Afghanistan and the terrain is extreme for running or walking. The socks are so comfortable for running, especially with blisters. This is a must have item while deployed. The only down side is too much for a pair of socks BUT I guess you cant put a price for your feet.
These are the best socks i've ever had! Weird at first but after one run I loved them. They are a huge improvement over 'old style' socks... seriously!!!!!
Why doesn't RRS carry size XL (shoes 13.5 and up)??? I have to buy them locally instead... bad RRS!!!!
New Orleans, LA
Happy toes in Europe
I particularly love these for traveling--I hate when my feet get hot and my toes get crammed together when I'm out and about all day long, walking around a city, standing in museums, and so on. These Injinji socks kept my toes happy all across Europe. I just wish they were available in higher-on-the-ankle versions for this sort of thing--hate having sock gap when I sit down and my pants cuffs rise.

No more blisters!
I got these socks to wear with my Asics running shoes that I love but that give me blisters, the toe box is a little big for me. I have also started wearing them with my Vibrams and haven't had a blister since! The size I got is small, my shoe size is 7 1/2, Vibrams are 38, they're a little snug in the Vibrams initially but after a few minutes they feel great.
Park City, UT
600 miles and no blisters
If you ever have blisters from toes rubbing on each other or against your shoes, these are for you. May be a little weird feeling between your toes at first. On really long trail runs I always seem to poke a hole in my right big toe. Maybe a shoe issue or biomechanical issue. I wish the toes were a little stronger, but still the best sock I have ever worn.
Great for all shoes!
I generally run in Vibram Five Fingers so these are the only socks that I can use. I also use them with my Brooks Mach 11 spikeless xc shoes and dress shoes for work. I like the freedom they give my toes. Go minimal or barefoot! You will not regret it!
good alternative to blisters
I have a neuroma in my foot and tight shoes eventually make the area above my second to last toe throb. These socks keep my toes separated enough so that the nerve isnt compressed. (This has the added benefit of keeping little toe blisters to a minimum.) I can now keep my sneakers tight enough to secure my ankles without having my toes crippled after an hour or two.
No toe jam.
I bought these to match Vibram Five Fingers shoes. For the price they should be more durable, but my when I wear them for a run in running shoes, my feet never felt this dry. When you take them off, it's remarkable how dry and lint free your feet are between your toes.
Excellent blister prevention!
I got these socks based on a recommendation from a friend. He used them on runs 15+ miles and never got a friction blister. I no longer have this problem! It does take some time to get used to the glove-like fit and feeling. If you like thick socks, these socks aren't for you. I love these socks and had to get two more pairs!
Los Angeles, CA.
Great performance socks!
These are great socks for anyone suffering from blistering between the toes. I had developed some blistering from my big toe rubbing against its neighbor and was looking for a solution other than bandaides. A friend recommended these to me. They work great - no blistering. Lightweight, moisture wicking. I wear these on long runs and when racing. Great socks.
LOVE the socks
I now have 2 pairs of these socks so I don't have to wash as often. I love the fact my toes don't touch while I'm running and that reduces the chance of blisters! I put a decent amount of miles on these socks during the week (25+) so I feel I am getting my moneys worth.
marti the marathoner
I have not had them long enough to comment on durability, but the comfort makes them great any time. I love the feeling of having my toes separated. I have already ordered more for myself and others.
So far, okay
The crew length socks have worked well thus far. However, the calf length socks developed a hole near the ankle by the third wear. I was disappointed to see that. My other three pairs that have been worn multiple times are working well
Would buy again
I'm an avid runner, putting in between 15-25 miles a week. I was a bit skeptical about them at first, but after my first few runs in them I would recommend them to anyone. Very comfortable and definitely help with blister prevention.
Hope Mills, NC
AWESOME socks, blister free!
These have helped me so much! I struggled with blisters on my toes after any run longer than about 4-5 miles. These have saved my feet and I never have any issues with blisters anymore. They stay in place for me, no slouching.
Great cure for blisters during long runs
I use these socks for my long runs. I have not experienced any blisters between/on my toes when using these socks. The Injinji socks also let my toes spread within the shoes.
Better than I thought
When you first put them on they feel weird but after a bit of time you get used to them and they become very comfortable. I recommend this product!

I've been running for 30 years and these are the only socks that have kept me from blistering on a run over 10 miles. They wear out quickly, but worth the money just the same.

There is no question they help with the breathability of the foot and blood flow. However my experience was nasty. They took forever to get on and then once on certain toes didn't fit them as well as others.

I have run more than 5,000 miles in all types of weather and terrain in these socks, and they are simply the best! Before Injinji, I got blisters with every other type of sock I tried, especially on long distances. I have not have one blister through 6 marathons, several ultra trail runs, and countless 1/2 marathons.

funny about "toes liberation", my girlfriend got "liberated" from plantar facsitis wearing Injinji- they allowed her toes to spread instead of the confines of a normal socks.... get Liberated!

I LOVE these socks! I have long, narrow feet with very long toes so I wasn't sure how these would fit. They fit fine, very soft fabric, and most importantly, my sweaty feet didn't get any blisters when hiking. I'm ordering more.

The world seems to have an issue today when it comes to the thoughtless and often horrific supression of toes. Toes were born to be free. Why has society began to imprison them in solitary confinement? Treat your toes they way you wanted to be treated! By this I mean DO NOT force them into uncomfortable, itchy capsules. Join the fight for free toes today and boycott this cruel product. Thank you from James at TOE LIBERATION.

Great socks! Due to foot surgery my first joint is fused on both feet. This makes me wear a gel toe seperator which can get very annoying. If I don't wear it I will get blisters. Not with these socks. I have run 2 half marathons this year, one in the rain, and I never get any blisters. These socks are the best!!
