Armed only with a solar powered labtop and a dial up connection I have secured for my hike this rather impressive pile of tabi socks. I need tabi socks because I hike in Chacos Z2–sandals with a toe strap. I have 2 pairs of nylon socks I got from karate depot, 15 pairs of Teva bamboo socks I got off e-bay, 2 pairs of neoprene socks off e-bay and 2 pairs of fleece socks from sol socks. I could have just got toe socks but I think it takes to much time putting each toe in its’ own compartment.
The most elusive of all was the neoprene tabi sock. They come from Japan. The company that makes them is http://www.neoworkgear.info/ The only place I could find them was some guy on e-bay with a couple of pairs. I e-mailed the company but they never responded. I think I will trim the neoprene socks down a little to save weight.
