When I first saw the Injinji toe sock liners at the store, I was skeptical. I wondered how my toes would like having their own individual spot, and whether it would even fit since humans all have such differently shaped toes. I was convinced by the salesman to give them a try, and I haven’t looked back. Now I wear them on almost every hiking trip.
They are constructed so that each toe “sock” is seamless, so there isn’t a chance for rubbing. Therefore, no blisters! Plus, since they are constructed of a mix of polyester and nylon, they stretched to fit my toes perfectly, and of course are highly “wicking” so my feet stay dry in my boots.
The drawback? They’re always sold out! All of my hiking friends are wearing them now, and the word is getting out that these funny looking liner socks are preventing a lot of blisters and unhappy feet on the trail 🙂 REI sometimes has them in stock, otherwise try Amazon.com. Even though it says “Men’s Liner sock”, they are unisex. A small fits women’s shoe sizes 6-8.5, and medium fits women’s 9-11.5.
The next best alternative are the SmartWool liner socks – these really work well too!
If they weren’t so pricey I’d own several pairs of Injinji toe socks (I only have 2 pairs now).
