cheap toe socks

2010-06-09 15:49:51.821319+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

For you Vibram Five Fingers wearers, cheap toe socks. They don't have a molded heel, but a friend of a friend on Facebook suggested that they worked fairly well.

Speaking of which, I've taken up running, not huge distances, a 4.5 mile loop and a longer one, two days a week right now. Started with my basic cross-trainers, once I got comfortable with the distance I switched to the Five Fingers. There's too much going on in the first few weeks/months of taking up a new activity to call anything data, but the days when I wear the Five Fingers my calves and the sides of my thighs feel a lot better afterwards.

FWIW, I wear my VFFs sans socks (office environment, and just generally walking around, no actual running). By the end of the day, after 10-12 hours of wear, they're a little ripe, but if I give them a day off, the anti-microbial stuff and fresh air seem to work. That's at least as good as, if not better than my Tevas, which give my feet a lot more chance to breathe.

Over a month of that sort of wear, and I still haven't had to wash the VFFs due to funk. Will soon as the outsides are getting dirty.

Drop the VFFs into a bucket of water followed by an Efferdent tablet and the funk goes away.

I now have three pairs of the VFFs. The Classic pair I started out with have a hole in the sole of the right foot one from wear. I have one pair of toe socks that I use on only the coldest of days. The rest of the time I wear them without socks. Even switching them out they get funky fairly fast. I must just have stinky feet.
