    Looks like I'll be getting some Injinji Socks. REI sells them, and so does Vibram.

    These shoes look weird...I doubt I would ever buy them unless I am mountain climbing or rafting.

    Ive gotta a pair, i think they are the sprinter ones, they have one strap over the top of the foot. I love them. I went on a 70 mile canoe trip down the Buffalo river In Arkansas and i just about never took them off.

    If you have the sprints, you'll love the KSO's.

    I bought some Injinji toe socks today. What a perfect sock for these shoes.

    Ive never seen the socks, i always go barefoot in mine. I typically have pretty stinky feet but i think i wear the vibrams in the water enough for the stench not to stick around. What is the deal with the KSO's? How are they different and when did they come out with them?

    Here are the socks:



    I don't know when they came out with the KSOs, but they pretty much address all of the complaints of the Sprints. They go higher to cover your feet more to Keep Stuff Out (KSO). They also have padding under the strap to keep them from digging into the instep of your foot. One of the best changes is that all the toe passages have quite a bit more room. My old classics squeezed my toes, but these are perfect!

    Good thing the shoes are machine washable. I'm going to be wearing socks with mine from now on to help keep them odor free....

    Also, they have a version of the KSOs made for water specifically called the Flow. See the picture directly below.

    I know I remember seeing something like that on that TV show
    "Married with Children" and I also think maybe the Simpsons



    On a side note, I walk bare foot every ware I can, I hate shoes

    Awesome, yea those Water KSO's are sweet. I love how the foot is open on the sprints, but it is annoying when i get gravel and sand in there so that would be helpful. After i wear these out ill have to get me some of those.

    Ok, so I had to throw my KSO shoes in the wash last night, for the first time, and put them out to dry. I must say they are like new again with no shrinkage.
