Since the first time I tried Injinji Socks, I have never worn any other type of sock. I did try a different brand of toe socks once because they were cheap. The word CHEAP describes them perfectly. As it turns out, my feet carry the weight of my whole body any time I stand, which is quite a common occurrence. ; ) I will never go CHEAP on any thing that protects my feet again. Why not buy Injinji socks and have both quality and comfort! Bottom line: Have both! Buy Injinji socks! And when you do, get amazing, friendly, and excellent customer service by choosing Sock Geek as your store of choice. With service providers like Mandy, you’ll never be disappointed.
