    Nice but only lasted for a few wears

      I do like these socks but they are getting holes in the big toes after having them for less than two weeks. They have been worn just on my jogs and washed maybe twice in that time.

      Nice but only lasted for a few wears

      Cozy, comfortable, with a few flaws

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought these to hike with in my new Xero Shoes Daylite Hikers, which were a great move as the Daylite Hikers are snuuug! So these slim socks work perfectly. They are quite warm, soft, and cozy. I've hiked a few moderate day hikes with them as well as my daily walks and not had a single problem biomechanically-speaking. As an 8.5 women's, I sized up to the Medium after speaking with the very helpful Backcountry customer service and they fit just dandy.

      However, they have a few cons: I wish I had bought the ankle socks, as the tube above the ankle is VERY snug, too snug for my comfort. Maybe some folks like that compression, but I do not at all. So I have to fold them over anyways which defeats the purpose of having the tall tube. And THAT exposes the major weakness of these socks.... BEWARE VELCRO OR BRAMBLES!!! Just don't go near it! The elastics that go around the upper tube are not enclosed at all, so you brush up against one piece of velcro or something sticky when the upper tube is folded over, it grabs all those little elastic strings and creates numerous pulls and snarls that are then vulnerable to more damage. It's happened to 3 of the 4 pairs I have now. These two flaws make me wish I could modify the socks (or that I had bought the ankle socks instead), but stretchy material is very hard to sew (at least for me). So, keep that in mind if you are considering the taller pair of toe socks.

      Other than those two issues, I love these socks!

      Cozy, comfortable, with a few flaws

      best socks for big days.

      if you're prone to blisters and calluses on your toes, try these socks. they have completely fixed that issue for me. they're well made and seem to be holding up extremely well to the abuse i put them through.

      Super comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These fit true to size for me based on shoe size, they slide on fairly easily (takes some getting used to if toe socks are new to you), and feel GREAT while wearing them. I've been wearing them for daily use first before going on a long hike, just to make sure they work at that level. Have not yet taken them hiking, but from my daily experience, I believe they will do fine.

      Magic Backpacking Socks

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      These were the only socks I wore (except while sleeping) on a 3-day, 10 miles a day, backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon in February. I was really happy to have them, as they helped keep my feet blister free, wore well, and didn't even stink (well, not much, ha) by the end of the trip.

      Great fit, comfortable, effective

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These socks fit my feet perfectly, including the individual toes. They are very comfortable, and keep my feet warm and dry. Appear to be sturdy, so I expect them to be durable and last quite a while.

      Who else remembers back in the day when brightly colored, cotton toe socks were all the rage? Y'know those same ones that bunched uncomfortably and made your toes feel mega kinda weird? Yeah, I remembered them too, so when I picked up a pair of these I had some shades of apprehension.

      However, I was desperate and I know this is going to sound kooky but on my longer trail runs, I was getting weird blisters and hot spots between my toes. Now, I had tried everything under the sun to avoid this and my husband suggested I try the Injinji socks. And so I did.

      And, my blisters and hot spots between my toes went away. Also these socks discourage that kind of build-up of grime and chafing that happens for me when I run through dusty desert areas, and the crew length is a shade tall but it protects my lower calves when I run through brushy areas, too.

      Not to mention, the fabric is prime. It wicks away moisture, dries quickly and is anti-odor, which is a definite plus.

      All in all, you want happy feet? Go with these socks. I typically wear an 8.5 in running shoes and purchased a small and it fits great.

      OK, this is dumb.

      But stick around, you'll learn something.

      I have these boots. They're too small. Other footwear I had that was too small got donated. These didn't. Should have, but didn't. Sentiment. Love. (Gore-Tex.) Dunno. But I kept them. Can't wear them with conventional socks. Toe-box city, egregious forefoot cramping, pain pain pain, and it doesn't take long.

      Enter the Injinjis. I switched to a pair of the original in a mini-crew length. Eureka! No more toe-box no more pain feet felt great. But this weekend was gonna be, I thought, a leetle tad chilly for mini-crew. I have been saving these up for summer use with my Chaco Unaweeps, but I decided now was time. I wanted warmer shanks, so out these came. I brought along a pair of lighter Injinjis in case the fit was off. The fit wasn't off. The fit was great. My too-small boots, improbable as it seems, have a new lease on life. And my Injinjis are why.

      You should consider them no matter what you are going for in socks. Toe slots minimize blisters not only in the forefoot but throughout; they align the sock so that a heel placement millimeters off simply doesn't happen. Your toes aren't restricted by the sock and they don't rub against one another. Whether your boots are sized right or not, I'd consider these.

      Looks funny but it is very nice...

      My foot size is between 6 1/2 to 7 and I got it small.
      I have sweaty feet and it bothers me a lot when I hike for long hours.
      If you have sweaty feet, it is good choice of socks you want to wear.
      Try it, you will love it!

      Big fan of Injinji socks. One thing I was worried about on toe socks is.... well.... my toes. I have this useless little pinky toe that doesn't even touch the ground, so was worried there would be extra fabric bunching and bundling up making a pinch on the outside. However, once getting them on, lined up, and all my toes in order, that was not a problem at all. They are really cozy, breath well, and dry out well. Great for hiking and stretching more than a single day out of them because of the wool.

      I used this hiking in the Alps averaging 7-10 miles a day. While wearing these socks I did not develop any blisters. When I switched over to a regular pair of socks, I developed blisters in 2 days. I won't wear any other type of socks hiking going forward other than Injinji.

      Great, comfortable socks

      My collection of the old Injinji outdoor wool socks were worn through to the point of falling apart and it seems they are discontinued; these seem to be the logical successor.

      They are every bit as good, perhaps more so. They are longer than the old outdoor wool socks, and feel a little less thick but are still warm. I like the new gray color (I got them in Charcoal) design. The appearance works well for outdoors and for everyday wear.
