Great for preventing toe blisters
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these after I started developing blisters on the inside of my big toe during the downhill on trail runs. They seem to do the trick for preventing blisters. I've worn these for 3 or 4 trail runs that I was regularly getting blisters with conventional socks, and with these Injinjis there's no more blisters. So far so good! They're not super light weight, but light enough that I would be willing to wear them running even on the warmest days here in Southern California.
Update (January, 2013): Just bought a second pair of these because I loved them so much. Got a hole in the big toe on my third run (after about 25 miles total of trail running), e-mailed Injini customer service, and they're sending me a new pair, free of charge. My first pair is still holding up great with no signs of wear after several trail runs.
