Give Your Toes Independence!

Give Your Toes Independence!

Two years ago, I bought my first pair of Vibram Five Fingers (VFF’s) and first pair of Injini Socks on the same day.  As you may know, VFF’s are “barefoot” shoes that have pockets for each toe.  So, if you want to wear socks with VFF’s, then you need some toe socks to go with them.

I decided wearing some ’70’s vintage striped knee high toe socks would push the ‘you look ridiculous’ meter over the top with the VFF’s.  I opted for Injinji’s instead.  Plus, they are moisture-wicking, which I don’t think had been invented  when those original toe socks came out.

These days, I rarely wear the VFF’s, but I do wear Injinji socks on almost every run.  They work just fine in regular shoes.  I still like Swiftwick as well, but right now, I favor the Injinji’s.  The moisture-wicking is great and the toe pockets prevent blisters and maybe even give the toes a little bit of independence.
