Are you ready to have the same enjoyment pulling on a pair of socks that your kids get from pulling on a pair of their favorite fun colorful toesocks. Well I have to say when the injinji Performance Socks arrived at my house it was all smiles!!! I didn’t know what to expect with these socks, because I had never tried toesocks before (not even as a child. Yep, I think I might have been neglected!!) I was really worried that they might bug me, because I thought that my toes really liked being free!!! So, I decided that before I got out on a long run I would just give them a whirl around the house, so with that, on went the toe socks. At first I thought, Hey, wait they do feel a little weird!! Well this initial feeling went away fast as I think that my toes were happy to have some individual attention!! My toes did not realize that they were actually being trapped together when I was wearing regular socks. So, walking around the house in just the injinji socks (wait that doesn’t sound good. I did have clothes on, I just was not wearing shoes over my socks) I realized that I had the same comfort as just being barefoot, which is my favorite way to go!!!
The next day I decided to give the injinji socks a whirl during a run. Now once I had my
shoes on I had that same, wait these feel a little different, feeling at first. However, as soon as I was running they felt great!! The cushion level with the injinji Performance sock is just right. Not too thick and not too thin, but what I liked the most was the comfort of the sock. They are soft even after washing them many times.
So, other than making you smile, being comfortable, and looking like your child’s fave toesocks, the injinji performance socks are actually made for function. Well what you ask? Well first off they are made to prevent blisters and chafing by wicking away moisture more effectively with the “Anti-Friction Fibers”. Which if you suffer from blisters and toe nails falling off, these are the socks for you for sure!!! The injinji Performance socks have a true Left and Right Anatomical fit. The 5 toe seamless design “Allows Proper Alignment For Stability, Gripping, and Balance.”
Here is what the injinji Footwear peeps are saying about the socks. The Original Weight
membrane that is light and breathable. Seamless in construction, the Performance Toesock™ forms to every contour of your foot. This allows for true restriction free and natural movement from your heel to five toes. This design encourages healthy circulation and eliminates skin on skin contact between your toes to prevent blisters. The socks also have AIS: Technology which is describe in the picture below.
Performance Toesock is engineered to separate your toes with a CoolMax® moisture wicking fiber that we blend with durable Nylon and Lycra® to create an anti-friction
(P.S. if you are a fan of the Vibram Five Fingers, I hear that the injinji socks work “amazingly” with the shoes. One reviewer said, “I especially like to wear the injinji socks with my five fingers when temps begin to drop!”)
