I love the concept of toe socks but am having a hard time finding some that fit my feet AND do not cut the circulation to/from my toes. Up until now I have been wearing both Balega Hidden Comfort/Dry socks. It wasn't until I tried a pair of toe socks that I realized that the toe box in my Balegas are too narrow. So I am wondering, what socks will allow a natural toe splay without the toe sock style?

I noticed that a pair of thicker Darn Tough socks that I bought specifically for backpacking/hiking have sufficient room in the toe areas but haven't tried an everyday sock of theirs yet.

Thanks!

Haven't seen any, and a quick Google netted me nothing. Can you just go sockless? I used to hate the idea of not wearing socks and as I started ditching my shoes when I did have to put them on I found that there were no socks in them.

Not sure if it matters, but I will say that they are for use with Altra Adams and Altra Instincts. It seems senseless to use a restrictive sock with shoes that feature a nice wide toe box.

No socks doesn't work for me Smiley

I wear cheap cotton socks from Wal-Mart and my toes splay just fine in my STEMs.  I have not had a sock so stiff and restrictive that it limited toe splay.  Maybe in a pair of very heavy winter socks or something, but never in a pair of crew socks.
