- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got these socks for snowboarding. I own about 10 pair of the injinji crew socks for running and everyday use, but those are too short for snowboard boots, the top is still inside the boot and will give you a line of blisters around your calf. (Ask me how I know.) These OTC socks are perfect. I usually ride with heavier weight socks, so these felt a little light to me at first, but they were plenty warm and I just tightened my boots slightly and all was good. After I got home I changed and put my gear away, but actually kept these socks on and wore them the rest of the day they were so comfortable. I bought my dad a pair and he has never worn toe socks but said he would try them skiing. He is used to a lighter weight so it was the opposite of me: he had to loosen his clasps a little on his ski boots. I noticed when we got home that he did the same thing I had done the first time: kept wearing them all the rest of the day. I think I’ve made a convert of him.
Love these socks

These socks I use it work. I am walking all day and they have really made the difference and how my feet feel at the end of a long shift.
