Wiggle Room For Toes
A new sock may allow for more range of motion for toes.
The Injinji Therapeutic Toesock™ separates each toe, which may help minimize friction between toes and help reduce the development of blistering, sweat buildup and athlete’s foot, according to the sock’s manufacturer Injinji.
The company says the sock features CoolMax® freshFX™ fibers, which combine moisture wicking and silver for anti-odor and antimicrobial benefits.
Injinji says the sock may help inhibit the growth of fungus and odor-causing bacteria. The company adds that the sock provides cushioning and may help eliminate the pain associated with corns, rubbing and pressure.

AliMed says the product’s protective barrier on the skin could fight germs for as long as 24 hours.
