Do you prefer mittens or gloves on your feet? That’s right, gloves for your feet, these cuddly critters fit your tootsies like a glove. Why is that so great you might ask? By having the sock fit around each toe, they separate your toes and keep them from rubbing, keep them drier, and allow your feet to perform naturally without restriction. This all sounds like manufacturer hype, but they are definitely intriguing and worth a try.
Photo: These socks fit like a glove – literally. Pictured is the outdoor merino wool model.
The Injinji sock models are all fairly thin (so they don’t squeeze your toes), and come in a variety of fabrics targeted to different activities. We liked the merino wool Outdoor model for hiking and similar sports.
