Final Update: Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew

Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew Despite the shrinking, I have continued to wear the Injinji Lightweight Mini-Crew socks about twice a week. I don’t think they have shrunk anymore.  I did wear them 2 days straight once more during the test, included an overnight in my hammock.  I put them on on a Thursday morning as I got ready for a canoeing trip in Mississippi.  I was wearing a different pair of FiveFingers this time because I recently bought some Sprints for water use.  Anyways, I drove to Montgomery Al to pick up another guy and then we both drove on over and camped on Black Creek for the night so we could be at the canoe outfitter early Friday morning.  To read the rest of the update please click here.

Ever wonder what a  toesock might look like.   Think glove sock and you are on the right track because each toe has its own, shall we say, pocket it fits in.  According to Ininji, this translates into better performance by allowing the foot to perform naturally and freely inside any shoe, much like going barefoot.  Injinja says a toesock is more like wearing a glove while regular socks are more like a mitten, so while regular socks are warmer, the toe socks allow for more dexterity.  They also claim that having each toe in its own compartment helps eliminate hotspots, blisters, moisture buildup and transfer of fungal conditions.  To read the rest of the review click here.
