REVIEW: Injinji Performance 2.0 Golf Toesock
When it comes to choosing the right golf equipment to fit your game, chances are you don't include golf socks on that list. Our friends at Injinji are making some incredible golf socks that will force you to reconsider your priorities.
Introducing the Injinji Performance 2.0 Golf Toesock. What's a "toesock" you might ask? It's exactly what it sounds like: an athletic sock that features individual mini-pouches for each of your toes. The folks an Injinji call this design "total foot utilization," and it is a truly unique feel on your foot.

But let's be honest; will golfers actually want to purchase a toesock?
"If it is your first time wearing toesocks it will take a couple wears for your feet to adjust," admits Claire Kooperman, spokesperson for Injinji. "But then you will forget all about the toe dividers! Since each toe is separated, all skin-on-skin friction is eliminated, meaning no blisters or hotspots after walking 18 holes."
No blisters while playing a round of golf is a huge win in my book as I am usually prone to those little friction buggers at least once a year. The Injinji toesocks also feature a patented ventilation system to keep your feet dry and cool, as well as strategically placed support and padding around your sole and heel. Overall, this is an incredibly comfortable golf sock that can grow on me over time.
Injinji also offers a wide range of different sock styles for various footwear functions and at varying heights. The Injinji Performance 2.0 Golf Toesock retails for $12.00/pair and can be purchased from the company website at www.injinji.com.
