Recent History of Toe Socks
Some of you may remember, hand knitted toe socks were made in various times in the past. They were quite chunky but great fun to use with fantastic rainbow colours. Having the design of our feet with separated toes, have always been there but unfortunately conventional socks manufacturers never thought about taking the design one step closer to the natural design of our feet with separated toes.
We have no doubt that the socks with separated toes was inevitable in the evolution of socks. As the best solutions is always found for our body, at long last a better solution was developed by simply following the design of our feet. Because it makes sense for feet and for the entire body.
Following a similar machine which can make gloves, specially toe separated socks machine was designed and launched in 1978 first time by a Japanese company. Toe separated socks require special technology to make the socks as ergonomic as possible, however, only the essential functions were built in the first versions of these machines. By TOETOE’s lead of creating a decent market for toe socks since 1999 machines have also become more sophisticated, though they a lot of room to improve and become more affordable.
After the invention of the special toe separated socks knitting machine, unfortunately some of the glove manufacturers were motivated by the opportunity and produced toe socks look alike products without having a heel (tube socks) and without proper fit and unfortunately using not-skin-friendly materials to appeal to the cheap market. This was probably fun and cheap for a short while, but it worked against the real idea of developing a properly working product which can be potentially very beneficial for our feet.
We take our feet for granted very often and the conventional socks exactly represents this by its current design. They only separate feet from shoes. In terms foot function and anatomy, they virtually contribute nothing to feet. In terms of hygiene they hardly prevent any potential fungal issues especially between toes. In terms of preventing blisters they cannot offer anything to prevent them between toes.
Although we have come this far to produce the socks in its new evolutionary form which is closer to its natural design, we must still convince people about this change. After all it is a life changing experience.
