They look awfully silly, and the guys might laugh, but you’ll be the one smiling at the end of the day after hiking or running in these toed socks. You will be blister-free, with no skin-on-skin rubbing, and you’ll find you have better posture and balance when your toes are allowed to work as they were meant to. Take care of your feet, and they’ll take care of you.
The Outdoor Series hikers combine Nuwool, nylon and Spandex for a comfortable, durable fit; the Performance Series runners have a high content of Coolmax designed to wick sweat away. $12-$16, www.injinji.com
