I love hiking, and am not always super picky about gear – I love trying new items, and seeing how they work out. One thing I am picky about is making sure my feet are happy. That means comfortable socks and footwear. Injinji has some new socks coming out, and I was fortunate enough to receive 2 pair. A pair of lightweight Liner socks, and a heavier pair of Hiker socks. These won’t be available until fall, but we have a sneak peak! Click HERE to read my initial thoughts and plans.

November and December have been heavy racing months for me – I completed 3 half marathons, and a full marathon along with several 5k’s and 10k’s and the Injinji Performance Run 2.0 socks have been my constant companion for every race.

I have used both pairs of Injinji Performance Run socks to run and hike over 200 miles over the past month or so. They have performed well, remained comfortable and most importantly, I have had no blisters! Only a couple nitpicks – like all other socks, they don’t stay over my calves, and I got a random hole in one of the socks, probably from hiking through bushes at the Woodland Conservancy, but I am not really sure.

As an ultrarunner I find that one of my biggest challenges on long runs is blister formation on my toes. I have tried many different ways to alleviate this issue with moderate success. Over the next few months I will be testing the Injinji Performance Run 2.0 socks to see if they have unlocked the key to beating blister formation between my toes with their toe sock design.
