Injinji Compression Socks

Has anyone tried the Injinji compression socks? Any comparison to other compression socks on the market?

I used these socks with the Vibrams so that I could be within Army regulation. I used the socks in my other shoes as well since I like the feel, which was incredibly comfortable.

I have a pair for my Treks- they're solid, if pricey.

Re: Injinji Compression Socks

I ponied up for a pair of the compression socks & they're definitely not very "compressive." An old pair of Gold Toe dress compression socks I had were much tighter.

The black Injinjis do make for an expensive but decent pair of dress socks.

If I could I'd return them for lack of squeeze.

Re: Injinji Compression Socks

There is a huge range of what is considered "compression" out there, plus a lot of it depends on how things are sized. Sizing a compression sock by a shoe size is kind of silly for example, yet a lot of companies still do it. How compressive the sock will be is based around how thick your calf/leg is, not how long your foot is. This goes the same for any type of compression gear, and there is a surprisingly huge amount of compression products out there that when measured aren't actually that different than regular spandex sportswear.

Re: Injinji Compression Socks

I use compression gear (UA), I have used it for a long time. I use it every workout and without it it just doesn't feel right. I enjoy it...even if it is expensive. Never tried compression socks...
