Athletes Take Note!

Toe socks. Yes, toe socks. But not for fashion, for function. Injinji‘s Performance series toe socks have received the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance which “recognizes products that are found to be beneficial to foot health and raises awareness among podiatrists and the consumer about products of exceptional quality that are manufactured with the consumer’s comfort and safety in mind.” In simple terms, they reduce friction and stress on the foot and toes while wicking moisture away from the skin. They’re made from an anti-friction material that is lightweight and breathable. The toe separations were created to “fully utilize the agility, dexterity and balance associated with each toe.” Man, these people really did their homework. The socks feel a little funny at first (because we’re not used to have material between our toes) but I got used to them very quickly and they eventually became extremely comfortable. They come in various colors, patterns and styles so you’ll no doubt find the perfect one to match your work out clothes (which I’m sure we all agree is very important).�
