I love the Injinji Ex-celerator Toe Socks. For anyone with problem feet, wide feet, or just seeking comfort, they rock. Click the link and see a bit more info.

$38 a pair is tough sell. You can get 2 pairs of snowboarding socks at a ski shop for that price, or 4 pairs of hiking/ski/snowboarding socks from a Marshalls/TJ Maxx/non ski shop for that price.

I love my euro socks. Thick, warm and have extra cushion.

Every turn is a blessing.

Socks I love

I owe an apology. The link for backcountry discounts was broken. Here's the new link! At this moment, it's working.

There's seems to be some confusion as to why I recommend these socks. I've ridden with nothing be SmartWool for years. They are cheaper. Yes, other socks are cheaper still. Hell, K-Mart probably still sells some for 3 for $5. If they work for you - awesome.

These are for folks like me with strange feet. Mine are very wide. That means that many socks just don't fit well. By the end of the day, they bunch up and collapse my toes, creating all sorts of hitches in my getalong.

So, I was perusing Ski Magazine one day (go figure - they give me subscriptions sometimes) and saw that they now made toe socks for skiing. I thought that if they worked in the torture devices otherwise known as ski boots, they might work for me. I ordered a pair.

The difference in how my feet felt at the end of the day was incredible.

I don't recommend these socks to you if you're totally happy with what you have. I'm not an evangelist or a salesman. But, if your dogs are howling at the end of the day, they may just be worth a try. Painfree is worth a lot more than $35 to me.

BTW, I now have 3 pairs.

I don't know, I always thought the smartwool socks worked pretty well in comfort, warmth, and preventing too much moisture or anything from building up...
