Injinji Performance Mini-Crew Sock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Injinji makes some comfortable, durable merino wool socks that might just aid in preventing blisters between your toes. Injinji makes some comfortable, durable merino wool socks that might just prevent you from getting a blister around your toes. For some people this is a real problem and these socks seem to solve the problem brilliantly. I'm evaluating these socks against five other pairs of socks that I've worn over the last few years. These socks look great and fit great—no excess, no bulging,… Full review

Darn Tough Merino 1/4 Sock Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars A comfortable, cushioned, and durable merino wool sock that might just last a lifetime. Darn Tough makes some comfortable, cushioned, and durable merino wool socks that might just last a lifetime. I'm evaluating these socks against five other pairs of socks that I've worn over the last few years. These socks look great and fit great—no excess, no bulging, no binding, just a great fit. They are comfortable right out of the packaging. I typically like to wash my clothing before using, but on one… Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Don’t believe in advertising. I feel painful when I wear sock on the road that full of rock. Terrible product. Terrible. I feel I‘ve been ripped off. Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Felt cheated, I must say. This is not a material as advertised. It did not take maybe 10-15 km of pure walking and both socks were damaged in the totally same spot actually hurting my feet as I did not expect them to go off that quickly so I did not notice that I actually walk barefoot. Do save your money. Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 2 of 5 stars Over-rated, over-sold, and bad customer service. These socks were a present and the gifter is extremely disappointed by the result. The toes sleeves are the exact same length which means none of the toes fit properly. The big toe sleeve is very narrow so it barely fits on the actual toe. The material is much weaker than advertised and visible damage ocurred after a single trail run. The grip dots fell off from just walking in a living room with floorboards. The company is trying to ride the minimal… Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars These were absolutely awful. These shoes are advertised to withstand rock climbing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. They did not hold up long at all and I only had them for a month before they started getting holes. They advertise it like you can wear these anytime and anywhere, but you can’t and I would not recommend it. Complete garbage! The product is complete trash! Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 1 of 5 stars Poorly made. Not as advertised. Pure garbage. Wore them for two bouldering sessions. The rubber nibs wore off quickly and I wore a hole in the fabric. So much for being durable and made of the strongest fiber. The company said they would be happy to exchange them, but first asked me to check the fit. What's the point if it already has a hole worn into it? Interesting idea but poorly executed. SAVE YOUR MONEY. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.  Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The company sent me the wrong size. I needed a size medium and they sent me a size large. I tried to work with the size but I'm pretty sure that it is not supposed to hurt my feet to wear these. I had to push so much fabric down in between my toes to get them to fit properly that it actually hurt my feet to wear these. They did not work right for rock climbing and they did not work well for jogging on the concrete when I encountered a very small patch of pebbles. It felt just like I had no protection… Full review

Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 5 of 5 stars Outdoors socks made in Dyneema, which according to wiki is 8-15 times stronger than steel. Protects the feet from stings and cuts, while at the same time keeping them warm. I love running and doing outdoors stuff in these. They are very light (perhaps 50 grams each?) and versatile. I use them for running and forest walking, climbing etc now, but can see many other uses for them. For example next time I go sea kayaking I will bring them instead of ordinary shoes or sandals, as they dry quickly… Full review
