I have finally worn out my first set of these excellent toe socks. They outlasted every other brand I have tried, and I have tried them all. They are light and breath well for summer use. These are basically the only socks i wear now.

    These are my favorite socks ever! They are very thin, and they really fit like a glove. I've tried several varieties of toe socks before, and none of them worked well for me. I liked the toe separation, but the other socks didn't fit right and were too bulky. These however, are the most comfortable socks (of any type) that I've ever worn. These are the only socks I'm wearing from now on. They also work amazing as liners for heavy hiking socks, etc. I wear them every day and they keep my feet dry and comfortable even during high-intensity activity.

    A little too thin on the cushioning for my liking and I have never had any toe socks or shoes before so maybe I am just not use to it but it just felt awkward.

    I wear a women's size 9 and chose the large size. Though I normally hate anything between my toes, I love these socks. They are the most comfortable socks I've ever worn. They also help if you get corns between your toes or if your toes are beginning to overlap. I highly recommend trying these.

    These are light and warm and fit great with my five finger shoes. These are my new favorite toe socks.

    • The problem I am having is this sock is shown in two different forms....a low ankle sock and a slightly higher ankle sock. I am just trying to find out which I would be getting if I ordered as clearly whoever set this up did not notice the differences in the photos used.
