    I really really REALLY like Injinji toe socks. Even the pinky toe on the Injinjis fit my squinky little pinky toes. No funny sock creases. (I tend to get them on the outside edge of my foot, under my last two toes.)

    I tend to have pretty good luck with Smartwool socks, and have a ton of them. Injinjis are more expensive, and I only have a couple pair. I wouldn't bother buying Injinji wool socks, as they fall apart quickly. But their other socks are great! http://www.injinji.com/
    +1 for toe socks in general. After living in Japan where that's all they wear I'm a convert. No bunching, no skin on skin rubbing in the toes...amazing. I've never tried that brand but I now wear toe socks for running, cycling, and snow sports.

    I'm intrigued now. I've seen a Japanese motorcycle racer wearing toe socks and it totally cracked me up because I hadn't seen toe socks since 1970-something.

    I'm the opposite of Knot - I've got size 7-1/2 feet and size 11 toes, for a total foot length of about size 9. It's a real problem for me buying shoes, because anything that has the arch in the right place bunches up my toes something awful

    Do all the toe socks wear out pretty quickly? It would be nice not to get blisters on the corners of my toes, but I'm not sure I'm ready to treat expensive socks as a disposable item. Besides my arches blister much less with thicker socks.

    My experience with the wool Injinji socks was that they wore out very quickly, within a year.

    The regular Injinji socks have lasted maybe 3 years now?

    dang, I'm right on the line between sizes too (which usually means neither size fits ) I wonder how durable the bamboo socks are?
