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.
