What’s the advantage of Toe Socks?
The key design principal in the development of the Injinji toesock was to create the best possible interface that allowed the entire foot to perform naturally and freely inside our shoes, just like being barefoot. Everything about the conventional tube sock works against your feet’s natural form and function. Consider the difference between gloves and mittens: Mittens keep your fingers together to create a warmer, oven-like environment, while gloves offer less warmth but more dexterity. The same principles can be applied to our feet. Conventional tube style socks force your toes to work together as one unit creating heat and moisture build up, unprotected skin on skin friction and reduces healthy air and blood circulation to the foot. Why have we been wearing mittens on our feet all this time? The human foot has toes to facilitate proper balance, posture, stability and grip. Each series of Injinji patented toesocks are specifically designed to enable your entire foot to perform naturally and efficiently from your heel to five toes inside your shoe. By providing a restriction free environment, your toes are able to become activated, providing you with increased dexterity, tactile sensitivity and allowing them to perform as they were intended. In addition, the flat knit weave and seamless construction of the performance toesock means there is nothing to rub or irritate the foot within the shoe providing an excellent interface to prevent common foot problems from developing; blisters, hotspots, moisture build-up, transference of fungal conditions and neuromas caused by improper footwear and athletic form.
