The in 2022 totally revamped Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew Wool Slate is the hiking sock par excellence. With this new version, Injinji opted for a new ratio of merino wool to synthetic fibres with a whopping 75% merino wool! Moreover, they changed suppliers. All this aims to further improve the quality and durability of these socks.
Hikers who frequently do long (multi-day) treks have probably had a lot of experience with blisters. For that, everyone has their own solution. One of the most common causes of blisters is friction of the toes against each other. Many hikers solve this by taping the toes individually.
The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew Wool Slate is a much easier and better solution. Skin-to-skin contact is impossible thanks to the individual toes. This avoids blisters between the toes! The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew Wool is therefore the ideal toe sock for hikers. The slightly thicker heel underfoot provides extra comfort and cushioning where you need it most.
By now, most people already know the benefits of merino wool. The fibres are spun extremely thin but still very sturdy. One of merino wool's special properties is that it does not itch and provides excellent moisture regulation. Thanks to its natural properties, the fibres of these merino socks retain small air pockets. These air pockets are the ideal insulation, keeping your feet warm in winter and fresh in summer. And are you doing a multi-day hike where your backpack shouldn't be too heavily loaded? Let your socks air and dry overnight, and you can safely wear them for several days.
Note: Injinji toe socks with merino wool are extremely comfortable, but unfortunately also a tad less sturdy than the synthetic Injinji socks!
