I'm interested in this thread.

I went on a first run in new shoes and new socks and ended up with a slight cut on the toe next to my little toe. No idea what that's called

I never recall cutting my feet or getting blisters previously although have to admit new to this running lark.

I thought this may be the new shoes but just tried them on and they are fairly loose. Just checked the Aldi socks and the blood is on the inner seam, which seems a lot thicker than I'd expect on normal socks let alone runners.

Anyone else with bad experience of Aldi socks or anyone think it must be the shoes?

Not sure how much you paid for them in Aldi. But the most important items of kit for running are socks and shoes. Rarely pay less than £10 a pair and often £20. Never had any issues since using 'decent' brand socks - designed by folk who know what they are doing.

Thanks for the response.

They were only ??3 but have heard the quality is good - think the price/quality argument is skewed by Aldi and Lidl although they do have some tat in.

To be honest I've run in a wide variety of socks and never had a problem. Not sure if the inner seam was as hard before I bled in it or not

I've been looking at socks lately and I quite like the idea of the Injinji glove style socks. I've not worn them though, so can't recommend them.

I bought a pair and they were fine but after 5/6 runs holes starting appearing?
