Avoid pain with these Toe Toe Running Trainer Socks
Fit Kit: Keep on running
Anyone who ever participates in any kind of sport will at some point get foot pain. A simple theory which has been explored for years is that your feet need the toes to be independent of each other to help with balance and flexibility. Another common problem is toenails that can cause cuts and blisters which the Toe Toe socks manage to eliminate by their design. The CoolMax® fabric gives you dryness in these ultra-low cut socks, complete with an arch support band and double-layered heel cuff.
HIT: Midweight fabric.
KNOCK: Low cut might not be everyone's taste. Other styles are also available.
