"Foot gloves" that separate the toes with a thin seamless, anti-friction membrane to reduce friction, hot spots, and the odds of blisters. Great for walking, running, and cycling.
Our MEC employee tester was sceptical at first, but came around after doing a grief-free 50-miler, while watching his Tetratsok-less companion blister up. As he said, "they may not be for everyone, but if you've experienced bad blistering or black toe while running, they're worth a try."

Layers of cushioning, in some athletic socks, are knit in to reduce impact. Mapped socks are activity-specific and will offer cushioning in common pressure areas.
Left foot and right foot specific socks provide precise fit.
