Why are they called no show when they still show they need to make them lower cut l think personally

With regular shoes less might show; five fingers are very low cut. Also, I may have pulled them up a bit to get the logo in the pic. But yeah, I hear ya, I have seen lower cut "no shows".

I have the three pairs of the previous version (Micro liner) and I love them. Just recently ran in KSOs without them, and started developing hot spots due to the inner seams, but had never had anything of the sort the injinjis. I wish I waited to get the newer versions, which have a extra tab to cover more of the achillies (2nd photo), while still being loe profile. The previous version was flat on top and would angle down, causing the anterior edge to be higher than the posterior. My local REI had a bunch of the old style out on display, perhaps they are clearing inventory for the newer version.

Yeah I agree with Nick... They need to make an actual no show sock for V5Fs... Personally, and maybe it's just on me, but I think the socks sticking out looks weird... though the micros are a bit better, they are only the size of the little cuff shorter than the minis!!! That's like a quarter or half inch maybe... Not enough!! Haha I want a pair that covers just around the back of the ankle maybe an inch and a half up from the bottom of the foot. Or maybe injinji should work with Vibram and make specialty socks for each style of Vibram?? I bet they'd sell well, charge 5 extra bucks.... Id pay it if they fit just under the top edge of my five fingers!!!

The problem with a total "no show" for VFFs is they are so low if they start to creep down there is no way to pull them up.

I use the Micro versions now and love them. Unless walking in my Classics, I never wear VFFs anymore without Injinji toe socks (Mostly KSO and Treks).

I am about ready to buy a few more pair so will be on the lookout for these.

I've been a fan of Injinji toe socks since my first day in VFFs last year. I use them religiously to avoid the dreaded "Swamp Thing" smell that going barefoot in shoes can cause. I'm surprised you didn't mention this in your otherwise great review, as IMHO, this is the big upside to wearing socks in shoes, well worth the extra expense, cumbersomeness of putting them on and the look compromise. Great site BTW, keep it up!

Have been trying to find a site that ships the Injinji socks to Europe (Sweden in my case) but haven't found any so far.

Anyone have any tips on where I can find a retailer with international shipping?

"I'd just prefer to be barefoot while wearing Vibram FiveFingers."

The irony of this perception continues to astound me.

There's nothing ironic about that statement.

Vibram does make a no-show sock which is marketed in England and Germany as the Ghost. It's about the same height as the FiveFingers Classic, and comes in solid white and in solid black.

Injinji has now updated their website with the new socks:

This very thin Coolmax fabric slides on easily when new but is almost impossible to slide over the smaller toes after a few cycles of wearing, washing, and hanging to dry. They bind on the wide tips of the toes and leave a pocket of fabric dangling over the ends of the toes. Last August I purchased half a dozen pairs of the higher versions of these socks. I became so frustrated with being unable to get them on over my smaller toes that I stopped wearing them. My favorite Injinji thin socks are the Bamboo liner socks that they no longer make -- these slide on without a fight. I'm hoping that they will eventually make a lightweight wool sock.

anatomically, I don't see the need to have pockets for all five toes in these socks nor the VFFs. Merging last two (smallest) toes into one pocket would be easier, I would think. Often, I have to make an (as small as it may be) extra effort to get those last two toes in correctly. Those two toes flex together any ways and I think on most feet they are close enough together that having them in the same pocket wouldn't be an issue.

In any event, I'm still getting these socks; as minimalist as they may be, KSOs I still consider to be shoes and my feet get moist enough that having socks for said shoes would be best when at work or what have you.

I bought these socks and wore them with my Komodosports for the first time yesterday. I think they're great! I am hoping they keep my shoes and feet a little fresher smelling during the sticky summer months.

BTW, mine don't have the extra tab in the back, they are the same height all around.

Those are so so fake. That website is also fake. You need to be more careful about these other vibram ff websites, there seems to be a lot of fakes out there.

Chris, www.purekit.com is not a fake website in the least. It is a very reputiable website.

@Christopher Chan,

This store doesn't sell fake VFFs either. They're the list of official stores in the Vibram Europe website. Besides, I've already ordered to them and their VFFs are right. THey also have a physical adress in Munich:

VIBRAM MOTORSPORT
Firma Del Favero
Geretsriederstraße 12 (kein Ladengeschäft)
81379 München
Telefon (+49) 089/1418265
Fax (+49) 089/14338491
eMail: info@vibram-fivefingers.de

Next time be more careful before condemning without evidence.
