The answer is, yes, absolutely. We do prefer combining Correct Toes with Injinji toe socks, as both products work synergistically to encourage natural toe splay and a variety of foot health benefits, but it is possible to use conventional (i.e., non-toe sock) socks with the spacers too. If you plan to wear conventional socks or use your Correct Toes in combination with conventional socks, we recommend that you give the seam at the ends of the socks a good stretch, from side to side, to make the socks wider at the ends of the toes and help reduce any pinching or squeezing forces on the toes.
The following is a conventional sock-stretching protocol that was shared with us by a Natural Footgear blog reader:
To help stretch my conventional socks, I use wool balls (about the size of a hardball) that are designed to fluff bulky clothes in a dryer. After washing my socks, I turn them inside out and put (cram) two balls down into the toe area—side by side—so that only the seam at the ends of the toes is stretched to widen the toe area. After this, I put the socks on a towel to dry (you might have to flip them after a few hours). I then wriggle the balls out of the sock, one ball at a time up the neck of the sock, and turn the socks right-side out. Note: The wool used for these balls is not “fine” wool.
Consider giving this technique a try, or better yet, get yourself a few pairs of Injinji toe socks and skip the work!
