Update: Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew sock

Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew sock Since getting the Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew socks about 6 weeks ago I have worn them at least twice and sometimes three times a week, so I estimate I have around 15 days total in them so far.  I even wore them 2 days in a row once to test the socks ability to handle odor.  The weather during the month of July was exceptionally hot but it has cooled down quite a bit in the past couple of weeks with highs only in the low to mid 90’s F.  Anyways, they are holding up rather well so far.  To read the rest of the update click here.
