Toe Socks for Men
Toe socks are similar to regular socks except that there is an individually knitted pocket for each toe. Think of it as gloves for the feet. Perhaps one of the best known producers of toe socks is a company called Injinji. They have a complete line of toe socks for men, that is, they carry men's sizes and the socks come in more masculine colors and designs.
Why Toe Socks?
To appreciate the advantages of toe socks, we need to understand some of the drawbacks of regular socks. With regular socks, your toes are kept inside one confined area. This inside area serves as an efficient heat preserver. Think about it, if you wanted to keep your hands warm in frigid weather, which would you rather be wearing – mittens or gloves? Mittens, of course. Gloves expose more surface area to the elements while mittens let the heat from each finger reinforce the heat from the rest of the fingers, preserving much needed heat for your hands. Well, the same thing happens with regular socks. Heat builds up inside, leading to excess moisture, and the friction between your toes along with the heat and dampness lead to a host of foot problems such as blisters and fungus. And women can attest to the smelly feet of men with their socks.
Toe socks avoid all that.
Because excess heat buildup is not encouraged, there is reduced moisture leading to fewer blisters and growth of fungus which are common problems with athletic socks. Also, most are constructed with a flat knit weave without seams to minimize irritating your foot. Since they wear socks for often than women, men welcome this benefit that toe socks provide.
But there are other advantages.
Each toe is allowed to move more freely and thereby do what toes were designed to do – provide proper posture and balance, and grip and stability. http://www.simplearborists.com/vt/arborists-in-whitingham/

Toe socks provide increased dexterity and tactile sensitivity. They allow your entire foot to move in a more natural way even inside shoes, just as if you were barefoot.
