To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Estoy consciente de que lo pedi a un proveedor en otro pais (China) y que fue envío gratis pero creo que deberia estar mejor descrita la talla ya que quedaron justos un poco mas chicos de lo que esperaba, solo 3 estrellas espero que duren bastante, gracias
I don't find them any more comfortable to run in than normal socks.Therefore they are not worth the extra money. In fact since they take longer to put on and take off than normal socks (getting those toes in and out!) , I would have to say that they are actually worse than normal socks! Don't waste your time with them.
On long hikes (>20 miles, 30 km), I was having problems with toe abrasion and chafing between the toes, and also my two smallest toes would overlap (underlap?) the adjacent toe, resulting in a sharp corner of calloused skin which would be very painful and chafed after several hours of hiking. With the Injinji toe socks, my toes stay in their proper position, cannot overlap each other, and do not chafe against one another. The socks are a pain to put on and take off, but once you get each little toe in its proper spot, they are quit comfortable. These aren't practical for everyday use, but for long hikes I love them. My first pair has been worn and washed 10 to 15 times and still looks good, but I bought another pair to have a backup just in case.
I first started using toe socks to alleviate pain from toes rubbing against each other from wearing shoes that looked nice, but didn't fit nicely. This helped so much I tried toe shoes and have been wearing them for nearly as long as I've worn toe socks.
All the toes socks available on Amazon work great in regular shoes, but, when wearing them with toe shoes, many of them don't have a long enough toe pockets, making toe shoes somewhat uncomfortable. Those are the ones advertised as one size fits most. I apparently I don't fit the "most" category.
I've looked at Injinji brand before and passed because, at a starting cost of $13 for a single pair, they are quite expensive, more expensive than some of the running socks. But with the cold weather here, I find that wearing multiple pairs of the other toe socks exacerbates the problem with the shorter toe pockets.
This is the first pair of Injinji socks I've purchased. Right off, I was impressed that they carry multiple sizes. In fact, they carry one size that's too big for me. They are quality made and the toe pockets are deep enough that all my toe shoes fit nicer with them. Also, They are thicker than most toe socks as well, making them much warmer.
I'll be buying more of these socks, but, I usually like to have 30 pairs of socks. I can't afford to spend $400+ on socks so I'll only buy 4-5 more pair over a few months.
Injinji's size range might be the difference maker. I would normally wear large socks, but my foot size falls under Injinji's "medium" fit. I ignored that and bought the large size anyway (it was 1 US size above my foot size) and it was a better choice.
My experience with FILA's mediums were that they were too restrictive at the base of the toes; putting them on was a pain and walking with them for extended periods caused some numbness. Cutting the toe slots open was the only way to provide relief.
Injinji's 2.0 gives me a lot more breathing room while still being snug. I'm not sure if they'll become tighter or looser with a few washes, but out of the box I could easily slip into them and had no slippage while running.
One of the answered questions says that these can't be considered compression socks. I'm sorry I read that. These are as uncomfortable as any compression sock I ever put on a foot. (Color me unimpressed with the compression fad). I wore them out in the field yesterday, under a pair of ragg socks, with boots. Yes, I did manage to forget for a while that I was wearing them . . . but I never came back to the realization that I was with a "Damn, no wonder my feet feel so great." Which does happen with the medium-weight crew socks. And another thing: these "original weight" socks don't do nearly as good a job of separating and straightening out my hammertoes as the midweight ones do. In retrospect, I can't understand what I must have been thinking to purchase these (two pairs of them!) in the first place. Sad face, y'all.
I'm a walker. Life is good on the sidewalk, and that's where I'd rather be than in a car any day. Downside: my toes get blisters on them (blame years of being rough on my feet earl in life). These socks prevent that. They are AMAZING game changers for my toes. As someone with poor circulation (once again, rough on my feet early in life, see frostbite damage), I was hesitant about the tightness of the toes. But the toes in the socks proved to be comfortable, not baggy, and kept my toes warm. I can walk longer distances now with these guys because I'm much less afraid of getting nasty blisters. Layer them with another pair of socks to maximize warmth or blister protection. The elastic in the rest of the sock keeps them up on my runner calves without slouching or cutting off circulation. I'm slowly transitioning all my socks to these, and will advocate them to anyone who'll listen.
