It’s a great time of year, Autumn is coming in, night are drawing in, the trails will soon be turning beautiful tones of orange from the falling leaves… and it is half term.
As you may (or may not) know, Feetus is a small family run business who are passionate about running, the products we sell and giving you, our customers, the very best customer service that we can. But every now and again, we need to put down the toe socks, the mail bags and cellotape and have a touch of r & r, and that’s what we will be doing this half term.
I completely get that it is an inconvenience, but to try and make up for this, I have setup a 10% discount code which runs until Friday 4th November! Just enter HALFTERM at checkout.
So, on that note, my out of office is on (even though I will still be replying to emails) and headed off for some rest … and probably a few runs!
On September 3rd 2023, Feetus (me, Shaun, Feetus’ owner), will attempt to become an IRONMAN, at Tenby in Wales. My triathlon journey started back in December 2021, but I will write more about that at a later date (you can check out my Instagram page if you wanted to find out more now). You can also follow the Feetus social media channels for more information on this.
For now, this is a very quick and brief post to let everyone know that from Thursday 31st August until Monday 4th November, there won’t be any orders processed. Any orders placed after 5:00pm on Wednesday 30th August will not be processed until Tuesday 5th September.
However, to try and make up for the delay I have created a 10% discount code for you to use on any orders between Wednesday 30th August, expiring on Monday 4th September.
JUST ENTER IRONMAN AT CHECKOUT FOR AN EXTRA 10% OFF!
I hope you have a great week, enjoy your discount and wish me luck, I think I am going to need it!
We love Injinji socks, so when we hear of new style coming in, we get very excited!
The new colour ways in the Injinji Trail and Women’s Trail ranges are not just new colour ways like in any other season release, these are limited edition and artist designed, making them that little bit more special! Check the full range here.
To check out the full details behind the range and the artist, head over to the Injinji site here where you can read more about Kia’s creative process around the creation of the designs in the Canyon Collection.
The artist of this range is Kika Macfarlane – an artist, art director, and visual designer based in Ketchum, Idaho. Originally from Colorado, Kika received her design and liberal arts education in British Columbia, Canada, and then worked in-house on design teams for brands like Patagonia and Stio.
I have already taken a fresh pair of the Mini-Crew Stream socks for a run out yesterday, they feel as good as ever, they are still the Injinji Trail range which is one of our best selling socks from the Injinji range, so that comes as no surprise, but it always feels nice to be rocking some new colour-ways. Especially when they match up with your shoes (it’s the little things in life, ha!). I’ll also be taking the Midnight socks for a run out when the weather is a little cooler, my tan lines are bad enough with the recent sunshine, I don’t think I could cope with 2 lots of them on my legs!
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over and check them out!
As always, Christmas has sneaked up on us like cramp on a run!
If you are anything like me, you still have shopping to do and are really hoping there are still some Turkeys (or Quorn roasts) left in the freezer! If that is the case, then read on.
We are approaching the final posting dates for Christmas delivery. Please click here to see the full details of this. However, in short, the Royal Mail are suggesting Friday 16th as the last delivery date for 1st class post. However, for those of you out there that truly live life on the edge, we have also started using FedEx recently, so you can order all the way up until 10am on Thursday 22nd and still have time to wrap it and pop it under the tree like you bought it a month ago.
To make things even better, we have a few different offer on, which are:
FREE Next Day Delivery on orders over £50 (usually £75)
Free 1st Class Upgrade (Choose 2nd Class or a 2 day service and it will be sent via 1st class or Next Day)
Get 5% Off Everything using code EARLYXMAS at checkout
Which do you choose, I hear you say? Well, that’s the beauty, you don’t have to, as you can use all of them!
All offers end on December 22nd 2022.
Please keep in mind the Royal Mail strikes, we have been seeing huge delays, so if it really needs to be there before Christmas, then a tracked/timed FedEx service is probably the way forward!
Christmas is soon upon us, so here are the last posting dates for Christmas.
Please keep in mind the Royal Mail strikes on 23rd and 24th December, we have been seeing huge delays, so if it really needs to be there before Christmas, then a tracked/timed FedEx service is probably the way forward!
1st Class – Friday 16th December
2nd Class – Monday 12th December
Next Day Delivery – Before 10am on Thursday 22nd December
2 Day Delivery – Before 10am on Wednesday 21st December
I am getting a lot of emails chasing up orders placed on Black Friday weekend, I am trying to get through these as soon as possible, but there is a large influx in emails so there may be a delay in getting a reply. I completely appreciate how frustrating it is, but please refrain from sending multiple emails on the same order if I have not replied yet, as this just slows me down, I will get through these ASAP. Really appreciate your patience on this.
If your order is marked as dispatched, then it has been packaged up and handed over to the Royal Mail. Any further updates are reliant on parcels working their way through Royal Mails backlog and tracking system.
Orders placed after 2pm on Wednesday 23rd November would not have been physically processed by Royal Mail until Monday 28th November. The Royal Mail were on strike on 24th and 25th November meaning no collections were made until Monday. Following this, there were more industrial strikes Wednesday and Thursday 30th November and 1st December.
I am sure that you can appreciate given the time of year and the fact that there has been 2 weekend and 4 strike days since the orders were placed that there is likely to be delays with all orders. I am asking all customers to allow at least 2 weeks from the day it left our warehouse whilst it progresses through a backlogged and extremely busy network.
Please allow extra time for your order to be delivered, there are many people waiting and unfortunately this is completely out of my control, until a parcel is delivered and returned or enough time has passed (around 3-4 weeks in the current climate) then I are unable to refund the item. I will do my absolute very best to ensure orders do arrive before Christmas.
Given that the strike action took place over the busiest retail weekend of the year I am anticipating a huge backlog and severe delays whilst they clear the backlog created by a huge increase in parcels and the lack of days that they have been at work to process them.
We hope that you understand that the action that Royal Mail have taken has had a massive impact on all retailers and we ask for your patience at this time. Please be aware that there are another 2 strike days this week (9th and 11th December) and another 2 next week (14th and 15th December), which I appreciate this is not ideal and believe me is equally as frustrating for myself as it is my customers.
Feetus (me) are unable to do anything to chase these parcels, make them come any quicker and we just have to be patient whilst they work through all of your orders. Please rest assure that if I have sent you a dispatch notification then your order has been fulfilled by me and is now in the hands of a gridlocked postal system of which I have no control over.
I am actively looking for other options to deliver parcels on the run up to Christmas, and hope to have something in place by the end of day tomorrow (Friday 9th December).
Thank you for your patience on this matter.

Well, this is some really, really exciting news that we have sat on for a little while, mainly due to the fact that we didn’t know exactly when they would land with us. However, we have been told they are due in port soon, and should be with us early May, or even before. So, drum roll please …..
The all new Injinji Trainer toe sock will be available exclusively from Feetus.
As the UK’s leading Injinji stockist, we were excited just to hear about a new range from Injinji, but when we were offered exclusivity in the UK on this range, we had to take it! We are extremely passionate about Injinji toe socks and the benefits that they can offer, so being able to bring you all the best products available along with excellent customer service is what Feetus has been built on, and this is testament to that.
The new Injinji Trainer range is designed for when you are training off the trails, and away from the road. We see these as been perfect for those strength and conditioning sessions at the gym, or some HIIT training, plyometrics and more. We can’t wait to get our feet in a pair of these and do a full review on them. For now, here is the Injinji blurb on the new range…
When preparing for a race, time in the gym fortifies your ability to push it to the finish line. Injinji’s new Trainer series is made for ambitious runners, giving your feet optimum support for active days off the trail. Featuring a precise fit that hugs the contours of the foot, your arch and ankle will be supported through all dynamic jumps and movements. The five-toe design minimizes skin-on-skin friction and allows for total foot utilization, making connection with the ground more intuitive and comfortable. The five-toe design and Injinji’s Original Weight thin cushioning promotes natural, restriction-free movement and gives the perfect amount of support to handle burpees, box-jumps, and everything in between.
Designed for runners’ cross-training, strength, circuit, and HIIT workouts, our new Trainer Mini-Crew will help you meet (or exceed) all of your performance goals. Made with our Original Weight thin cushioning, the seamless five-toe sleeve design eliminates blister-causing friction and promotes natural, restriction-free movement. A breathable mesh top keeps you cool and dry, and a precise fit hugs the contours of your foot to move in sync with you, allowing a greater feel for the ground. Technical ribbed knit provides enhanced support to the arch and ankle, allowing the perfect amount of cushion for your next workout.
They will be landing with us in early May (maybe sooner), and will be available for pre-order towards the end of this month. Keep an eye on our social media, and newsletters to find out when this will be.
They are a unisex sock, available in 2 colours; Orange and Lime, and will be available in Small, Medium and Large.
I hope everyone is enjoying Spring so far! I can’t be the only one glad to see the return of light nights and the (slightly) warmer weather, although, as I am writing this, I have seen nothing but rain.
So, this is a quick blog entry to address current shortages with Injinji socks as well as an update on the incoming stock for the Spring/Summer 2022 range.
As you may have noticed, there are a fair amount of ranges and sizes currently unavailable to order on the website. This is not due to a lack of attention, but due to there being no availability of these within the UK currently. This is for various reasons, but mainly down to unprecedented demand for Injinji socks over the last 2 years, and heavy delays in manufacturing and shipping. This has affected some of the new colour-ways from 2021, which sold out extremely quickly, as well as some of the staple products from Injinji such as the liner socks, which have been unavailable in all but large and x-large since early 2022. We have tried our very best to ensure there is a good availability across all Injinji ranges and in as many sizes as possible, but have not always been successful.
Our next shipment, which will be replenishing stock on things like the Liner and Ultra Run ranges, as well as bringing in the new Spring/Summer 22 range, is due to land with us in early May (maybe sooner, fingers crossed). We are very excited for this to land, as not only does it mean we will have full stock availability for all you Injinji fans, but it will also mean a huge expansion of the available colour-ways. Injinji have some fantastic new designs this season, and I am sure you will like them as much as we do.
Right now, we don’t know what the next 12 months will bring in terms of further delays to Injinji availability. Hopefully none, and we can wave goodbye to backorders and waiting times, but just in case, and to make sure you don’t miss out, we have an alert system setup for anything we don’t have available. Just find the item you want on the website, select the size, and there will be an option to subscribe to stock notifications. Pop in your email, and you will alerted as soon as we log these back in stock.
To end on a positive note, Feetus will be announcing some very, very exciting Injinji related news in the next few days.
Hello everyone and welcome to the latest Feetus blog post! Today, we are looking at the all new Injinji Spring Summer 2021 Lineup.
Although delayed for a little longer than expected, due to obvious reasons at the moment, we have now finally taken delivery of the new range, and it all looks fantastic in person! The new releases focus on expanding the Injinji Ultra Run and Ultra Run Womens range, not only into new colour-ways, but there is no also a mini-crew version available, to add to the current no-show and crew Ultra Run toe socks. There are also some new colour-ways across some of the other range.
Before we dive in, here is what Injinji have to say about the new range…
Bright colors and new designs have always been a staple of new Injinji products, and this year is no different. The Run and Ultra Run series feature new, exciting colors and patterns to wear on runs and workouts. Additionally, we are continuing to build on the Ultra Run series and have launched a new cut, the Ultra Run Mini-Crew and Women’s Ultra Run Mini-Crew. This brand new sock is sure to be a favorite among runners and outdoor enthusiasts.
So, let’s take a look. First up, the Injinji Ultra Run. In the unisex range, we see a new style added to the no-show and crew sock heights, as well as the mini-crew sock height added to the range. The new colours are Pop and Deco, you can check out the photos below.
In the Womens Ultra Run line-up, we have the same kind of changes, mini-crew has been added, and new styles across the range. The new colour-ways are Dew and Melon.
On top of this, Injinji have also treat us to some brilliant new colour-ways in the trusty Injinji Run and Womens Run range. In the unisex range, we have seen the addition of 3 new colourways in the no-show, and a new lightweight mini-crew toe sock.
Then, in the Womens Run range, we see 4 new additions.
Some great new styles added to the range this season, and great to see that the Ultra-Run range has had the mini-crew length added to it. These are now all available to buy online at feetus.co.uk. As always, we are here to help, so please just let us know if you have any questions. I am well aware of how it can be confusing which socks might be right for you, so we are always happy to help and to make sure you get the right sock for you.
We have also got some new products that we are adding to the range this season, but that is for another blog post, so make sure you check back!
Wow! What a year it has been! After watching more news than ever before, I think it is fair to say that the word of the year was definitely … unprecedented. There was another one I remember hearing a lot, began with C? Can’t remember though, let us just try and forget that one.
I just wanted to put a quick blog post on here to say a very, very sincere thank you, to each and every customer that supported us this year. We could not have gotten through this without you, and I genuinely hope that we helped you enjoy your once a day exercise allowance! Whether it was your first pair of Vibrams, or your 50th pair of Injinjis, your custom, as always, was very much appreciated.
We did have some hiccups during the year (not the drinking too much type of hiccups 😉 ) but those caused by a multitude of things, from delayed shipments from manufacturers, to extended delivery times due to shorter working hours. We made it through the year in the end, and looking forward to what 2021 can bring, eventually.
In the meantime, I hope everyone keeps safe, enjoy some time with your loved ones, and just as importantly, keep running!
