I'm a Sock Snob-Wanna Win Some?

I am an admitted sock snob.

For years, I would only wear Balega's. 

Then I discovered Swiftwick and LOVE 'em. That is all that covers my toes. 

Recently, I was asked about Injinji socks.
I have never worn them. 

I have no opinion about them...so I ask you-
Have YOU tried them?

Do you WANT to try them?
One lucky MMM reader will win some socks from Injinji. All you have to do is visit the Injinji site and tell me ONE thing you learned.

Earn a bonus entry by sharing this post!!

GOOD LUCK

I learned that help with proper toe alignment and help prevent blisters.

I learned they are funky looking socks. enter me and go Swiftwick!! (whoops)

Trish said...

I've heard of Injinji before, but I've been afraid to try them, because I'm kind of, ok, totally a sock snob too!! I did learn that the toe box is seam free, which does interest me. I would love to try a pair and see how my feet fee!

TriMOEngr said...

I learned that they make toe-less toe socks. Funny - some of my hole-y socks would fit that bill. Can always use more socks.

Linda said...

Who knew a sock could improve the alignment of your feet/toes!?

Colleen said...

I checked out their website- they look like cool socks! I learned that they are good for blister prevention. thanks!

I have never heard of either brand, but I learned that the individual toe compartments cold prevent blisters and I got a couple of doozies on my pinkies from RR!

Jen said...

Yes - I want to win them! They are all I wear and I'm do a few new pairs! My toes rub when I run and these socks are the only socks that prevent that!

I am a shoe snob

I didnt know they were toe'd socks, that is interesting

Jen said...

I've never tried the Injinji's yet - but I'd love to win some! I never knew they had compression socks too. Hmmm....love compression.

Lisa said...

HA! They make TOELESS socks for yoga. and in a very cool strip pattern. Who knew?! My feet tend to get cold during yoga, especially in my kitchen. Cheers!

Katy said...

I had no idea there was something as "proper toe alignment" or that socks could screw it up or help make it happen!

Jenna said...

oooh would love some socks! I learned they make socks for yoga?! Who knew! And they have toe-less-toe socks. Again, who knew?

Jenna said...

Would love some socks! I learned they make socks specifically for yoga (who knew?) and they make toe-less-toe socks!

(sorry if this is a repeat comment)

I learned that they are toe socks!

Suz and Allan said...

I know this is going to sound bad but I only thought they made the crew-length toe socks. Learn something new every day!

The anatomical 5 toe sleeve design properly aligns toes, prevents blisters, and promotes proper posture and balance.

Priscilla said...

Oh i so need these as I have one toe that goes over the other and this would really help keeping it in alignment!! Love it plus the choices and the cost.

Lynn Lascola said...

I leaved that injinji socks can prevent blisters.

Jennifer O said...

I learned that each toe is allowed to move independently, which means blister-free running!

Kate M said...

JEN! You know I need some new socks! Mine are all dirty from when we got lost on the trails :P

Injinji keep my toes from destroying each other in my shoes... they don't get along very well.

Hope you got home okay!

KCKrane said...

blister management!!

Jeff Vanis said...

I did not know they also made compression calf length socks! Exciting!

Marnee A said...

Is an observation the same as a learned lesson? If so the guy in the video has a great running form..okay maybe not what you were going for.

I have never heard of this brand but I must confess I am not necessarily a sock snob as much as I have a reasonable fear of anything new - could they be better? I don't know, but I'm afraid to pay the money to try so hopefully I will win and then I'll know!!!

Oh yea, I learned they are good for preventing blisters! Booyah!

I was also a die hard fan of Balega, thinking I would never try another sock. Then I was given a pair of Injinji's. They are both great socks in my eyes and both have great attributes. I would love to win some Injinji, one pair just isn't enough! I checked out there sight and found out they have compression socks, I guess you learn something new everyday!

Melissa Cunningham said...

Im totally not a sock snob,(i wear my sons socks if i cant find my walmart elcheapos)but these look cool!!!
and i had no idea socks played such a role with toe alignment..and injinji makes socks for yoga?????

LunainPA said...

I learned that they make compression toe socks.
They sure do appeal to this aging newbie runner with sore legs.
