These are amazing socks, have had others before but these are by far the best.
The construction is perfect and the feel of wool superb. I have long toes and an angled foot but these still fit well. Will definitely be getting more.
I bought three pairs of these socks - one each for me, my husband and daughter. we love them so much I am going to buy more as Christmas presents for our friends. The fit is perfect and the comfort superb. Just love them.
New to the world of barefoot and “toe splay” specifically, there are tons of options and the combination of wool and longevity really piqued my interest and resulted in my trying creepers socks. I got a couple of the pink ones and I love them! Not just because they are pink but the softness, the way they are breathable but still provide warmth. They don’t constrict which I was concerned about but allow your foot to naturally move. I plan on buying more, these will definitely be in my rotation.
I've been an Injinji wearer for years and just gave Creepers a try. I LOVE them, so soft and so cozy. I would love to see a lower cut sneaker sock and more colors in the crew!
I recently discovered Creepers toe socks and being a Kiwi living in Oz, had to try them out! I ordered 2 of the crew and 3 of the quarter crew in a small size for my 6.5 size foot. Absolutely perfect fit, so comfortable, and keep my feet cool and dry even in the warmest weather. An absolute must have if you care about foot comfort. Wish they'd been around decades ago!!
Yep, they are as good as the reviews, next pair i buy will be the longer version to keep ankles warm in winter
Very comfortable, great fit and excellent quality. I’ve long been a wearer of toe socks, and these are the best ones I have owned.
I always have problems with blisters wearing normal socks but not since wearing these strange wee socks. Without doubt these are amazing socks and have saved much pain and discomfort.
I bought two pairs as a present for a tramping friend and one pair for myself - i was concerned she may not like them but she said that they are so great and the best birthday present ever! I love mine - so comfortable,no blisters,warm even when wet.
These look funny but work great! I love the merino and the quality is great. I have noticed reduced rubbing on my toes and the socks dry really quickly. Would love to see more colours in these - the pink is EPIC!
I ordered 2 pairs of these socks to try out as I am doing a lot of running training for a 11km race and they are a game changer! Super comfortable and better yet, NO toe or heel blisters!!
I wear these socks for everything. At first I wanted to preserve them for running only, but honestly they don’t break down very fast. I wear them to work every day, and also run/hike for many hours in creepers - they still feel fine! I’ve even run a 100 mile race with them! Also, I like the name Creepers, it’s a fun conversation starter.
Im very excited for more colors! I like to keep it funky fresh on the trails ;)
I've worn various toe socks for many years now. Injinji was the king and I destroy their socks too fast for me to buy them anymore. Xotoes and creepers seem to last longer. I haven't worn the creepers as much but so far they are holding up well. I'm interested to see how long they will last.
Discovered Creepers three weeks before departing on the long walk. With two pairs in my backpack and one pair on my feet I am absolutely delighted with them. I double sock in boots that fit well and have had no issues over the past month of walking.
I keep talking about them and showing them off !
Blisters are no fun for anyone, not you, your toes, or anyone who has to hear you wince from blister pain (or anyone who has to see your blistery feet)!
Creepers toe socks protect your toes from the shoe and each other (bless their hearts, they try to like each other but sometimes just can’t get along for so long in close quarters). I went from DarnTough socks (which I love, but my toes still gave each other blisters) to Creepers with immediate reward. (No blisters at ALL after an 18 mile day) That said, I pair these with shoes that allow the toes to splay, too, so I can’t report on how well these do in smaller toe-box shoes.
I’m a fan. I wear only Creepers now when hiking or working out (walking/running/jumping) where extra repetitive foot movement is involved.
