Injinji Sock Giveaway!

So, I feel bad about not blogging.  The sad thing?  I really honestly do.  Somehow over the last 5 years or so this blog has become part of my identity that when I don’t contribute to it, I feel like I haven’t called my mom.  The ironic part? I feel guilty when I blog a few times and then call my mom and she says something like “well, I see you’ve been busy!”  Doh.  Maybe I should be talking to my mom while typing this blog post....or, I could just drown my guilt  with a pan of brownies....

Anyway, to get rid of my blogger’s guilt I’m baking brownies!, I’m going to give away some socks!  But, not just any socks.  4 or so pairs of Injinji’s Performance 2.0 socks that have toes!!! Think about it – I don’t run with mittens on my hands unless it is COLD:

I think these are made out of Chewbacca hide


So, why would I run with mittens on my feet?

Mittens on my feet?  No...Just...No.


I don’t always run with toe socks, but I do like how I feel like they keep my feet a bit cooler than normal socks would (similar to how gloves aren’t nearly as warm as mittens).  Injinji recently rolled out a new website and a fun video showing that you really can wear toe socks with any kind of shoe:

Note how the dude has REAL runner feet....

To win, all you have to do to win is check out their brand new website at http://www.injinji.com/ and let me know how much ankle cleavage you like to have.  (Read: what kind of sock do you like?)  The trick here is that only entries with the correct Injinji size verbiage count!!  No answers like: I’m a floozy, so I like my socks so small that my entire ankle is showing.

Leave a comment and you’re entered!  I'll pick a winner on Friday.  Easy as that.  Make sure you follow my blog (but, I'll be honest, I probably won't double check) and if you wanted to post it on twitter or facebook that would be cool too (probably no additional entries though, just a nice thing to do).

Can you believe how much ankle cleavage she is showing?  Slut.

I want the mid weight mini crew please! pick me, pick me!

Tracey said...

I'm a mini-crew kind of gal (scandalous!!!!)

Kelly said...

No worries... I can imagine that documenting your life and running falls by the wayside when you're busy living and running (or not running this week-eep!). I like the ones you have posted here ("Injinji Performance-Series Lightweight No-Show Toesocks") or the outdoor ones. I like the no-show idea but they look like they cover the Achilles a little better (and mine bug me a lot). I've never worn toesocks for running!

Those look gross, like they never really get clean.

Funny that a pair of socks describes me a day after a night out with something important to do the next day (lightweight no show).

Katy said...

I'd love some cool, new socks!

Ax said...

I suppose I'd go with the performance original weight micro.

Disney Bride and Groom said...

I am an Injinji junkie! I have several pairs and wear them for all my runs. I am a fan of mini crew length. And I also like the compression knee highs.

I'm a total slut and love to show some ankle cleavage. Got to make up for the fact that my son sucked my real cleavage from me.

CaptainSuburbia said...

I'm a lightweight no-show guy. And, wish my figure was the same.

TEAM LINDSAY said...

The Injinji Performance-Series Lightweight No-Show are my favorite (and my husband's favorite)!

Laurel C said...

I've always wanted toe socks! I was always jealous of this girl who had rainbow toe socks when I was 5.

Kim said...

I love the lightweight no show socks. I hate when my feet sweat so no matter how cold it is outside, I'd rather have the lightweight ones and socks that cover the ankle remin me of a bad time of my life when I had no fashion sense

Flaming June said...

I'm a lightweight no show kinda girl!

Monica said...

I've never heard of Injinji before! I would LOVE to try some lightweight performance. I like the mini crew - my ankles are prudes....

Lisa said...

I like the midweight no-show socks. I like a little more cushioning and the tab in the back.

Sybil Runs Things said...

Definitely no-show!

Erin said...

No show in medium for me. We miss your blogging when you're gone. Absence makes the heart grow fonder or something like that...

krystyna47 said...

I do like the midweight no show! Oh yes I do!

Gracie said...

Lightweight no-show, only because I love heel tabs.

Colleen Smith said...

Usually I'm into the ped situation, but in this case I like the idea of crew-height toe socks!

Laura Runs a Latte said...

Hmm, let's see... Original weight Mini Crew in size US W Small. Preferably white :)

FireRunner2379 said...

I would go for the Performance Original Weight Mini-Crew in black, I have fat ankles and that color is slimming!!

Denise said...

I really want to try their new compression sock so no ankle cleavage in this case.

Sue's Ramblings said...

I'm a follower and sometimes wear Injiji with my Vibrams. I'll go for the Performance Lightweight No-show in pink, small.

BabyWeightMyFatAss said...

LOL Cover my calves! I want to look like i play softball!

The Newbie Runner said...

I'm in for some PERFORMANCE MIDWEIGHT MINI-CREW, the Gray/Black one - Small please. :)

Alisha Lilly said...

I would love to try the performance mid-weight no shows.

TriMOEngr said...

I prefer mini-crew unless I could score some sweet over the calf compression socks.

Karen said...

No show for me. I have no cleavage up top, so I'll take it where I can.

I'm a Performance Light Weight No-Show kind of guy!

Hope I win!!!

JnetRuns said...

The lightweight no-show rock!

Patty T said...

Lightweight mini-crew for me!

pensive pumpkin said...

At this point, I need a separate drawer for all the mini-crews in various perty colors and weights that are populating my life. And, yes: I need more of them. They're like crack. I even convinced my MIL to buy me some for Christmas. LOVE. THEM.

Robyn said...

In the summer, I'm a no-show. But now that it's 2-feels-like-18-below? Mini-crew, please! Goes well with my calf sleeves.

Lish B said...

I keep it minimal...lightweight no-show!!

Yvonne Woodstock said...

Either light weight mini crew or no show for me. I just heard of these socks from someone today they said they are the best socks to help prevent blisters and thats what I seriously NEED! If they really help that much I'll turn from a hopefully lucky winner into a long time consumer!

Mari said...

Love, love, love the mid-weight no show, but I'm curious about their compression line.

Steel Springs said...

I'd love to be entered in the giveaway. Thanks!

Rachel Goeden said...

The great toe mitten vs toe glove battle of 2013 begins!

Blkjkrabbit66 said...

Super cool footie socks - come to papa!

Holly said...

Definitely no show!

Jacy Vergara said...

I love these socks... yes, they prevent blisters - on toes! Blisters on heels and balls of feet are another problem!

Jacy Vergara said...

Sorry, I did not follow directions. I like no ankle cleavage. I cover them up all the time. With that said, I would LOVE to try their over-the-calf compression socks!

Katherine Ann said...

Alright - been reading your blog for a bit now, and this has just promted me to subscribe...I'm like 85% sure I did it correctly! Shizah!

tastethesalt said...

Besides the fact that my uggs would love a pair of these, totally no show for me.:)

Scallywag said...

I like the performance midweight no shows! I like that they have a tab for the back of your running shoes!

Jamoosh said...

One can never have to many pairs of Injinji toe socks!

msplainjane said...

Lightweight no show over here! Love them!

Keith said...

Put me down for some mid weight mini crew

Lori said...

I'm all about the no-show!

MtUnpaved said...

Minicrew midweight for me.. I like mine low and slinky!

Westplex Runner said...

I'm a lightweight no show. Only time I can call myself a lightweight and kids tell me no show is cool.

Courtney said...

I'm a no show kind of girl. Thanks!

ZozoRetro said...

Midweight no-show please. Gotta have the cushion and gotta keep the tan lines as low on the legs as possible, LOL!

Ryan & Felicia said...

I love Injinji toe socks!!!! If I could I would wear them everywhere. I am an Original Weight Micro kind of guy. X-Large please.

Btw... follower.

Al's CL Reviews said...

mid weight no show.
The Ped made me feel dirty

Teresa Millstone said...

I'd like the performance lightweight no-show. I don't want to show my socks in public!

mikemilzz said...

Personally I'm a "no show" or "micro" kind of guy, but let's just keep that between you and me.

I've run in Vibrams before w no socks, and I've always wondered what toe socks would feel like. Concept makes sense, but my toes could be a little "funny" so I'm really interested in seeing how these fit.

Now stop reading this and go call your mother!

The Real Deal said...

I'd probably benefit greatly from the Performance Ex-Celerator Compression socks (size Medium) - not because I'm a prude, but am prone to ankle/calf injuries.

But I don't want to seem greedy (since those are more expensive), so I'd go with the Performance Midweight No-Show (still size Medium).

I've never tried toe-socks before. Does it feel like 10 mini-strangulations happening at once? How much toe jam does it create/prevent? Will I blush showing more ankle than I'm accustomed to?

I will only be able to answer these questions if you pick me. I hope you can handle this burden!

stephrunson said...

I'm pretty scandalous, I like to show a lot of ankle. I like the lightweight, no show, because I want to show off all that ankle.

runyourashoff said...

I'm scandalous (just from the ankle down) and like the Performance Lightweight No-Show

Cassie D said...

No show!

AimFireReady said...

midweight no-show work for me!

tweetsweet said...

Mid-weight mini crew...I have used the no show socks in the past, but wanting to "cover up" a little going forward. Am I getting shy in my old age - perhaps. You know what the sight of an ankle can do to people.

Running On Candy said...

I have the mini crews so I want to try the Performance Ex-Celerator Compression!!!!

Stephanie Rafferty said...

I really want these socks, and I would be happy with either the original weight micro OR the midweight no show. I've always wanted to try these! Thanks!

Missy said...

Some of my running geeks loves these. I must win a pair of "no-shows" to see what the fuss is all about!

Audra said...

Performance Lightweight OR Midweight no show socks please : )

mrsr1n1 said...

They have performance original weight in peds!!! I want them!

kam said...

I love your posts, the emails always add a fun moment to my work day! I'd love the mini crews :)

Ian M. said...

I like the over the calf and the ped.

erinrunner said...

Definitely the no-shows!!

Half-Crazed Runner said...

Love the pics! Love to win if the socks have super powers, like my new sneakers!

Monica said...

I'm all about the mini crew. I'd love to win some new socks. Thanks for the chance!

Mike said...

I love me some Injinji socks! Especially the light weight mini crews.

I actually gave these socks for Christmas this year...yep I'm that kind of person!

Betsy Lutz said...

I'm one of those floozies: I like ankle socks! The popular knee high ones make me so frikkin' hot! I chdecked out the website...very cool!

TinaFab said...

i enjoy bringing shame and scandal to the family! low as you can go....i have an orig pair, and well, its not low cut enough for this gal. I would love to try the midweight no shows. Then again...i bet those compressions would be freaking ace on the trails!!! So if i covered my ankles i'd make sure i had a sassay ass shirt on.

Shelly Latsha said...

I love Injinji Socks!! Thanks for the giveaway. I'd like to try these:

OUTDOOR ORIGINAL WEIGHT CREW
Color: Forrest
Size: Medium

Detailed, I know, but I'm not taking any chances on getting the incorrect verbiage.


Amanda said...

Performance original weight mini-crew for me!

scissorbill said...

I'd love to try the over the calf compression socks from Injinji.

RunningLaur said...

I'm in desperate need of new running socks. I'm an original weight mini-crew kinda girl.

Lesser is More said...

I prefer letting my ankle goodness bare it all for the public with the lightweight no show. Kinda ironic that the "no show" shows it all, no?

Run Nerd said...

Mini-crew for me, please! Thanks
