Hanes PREMIUM is What You Are Really Looking For!
on January 15, 2011
For the last 4-5 years I have made it a yearly thing to treat myself to a whole new "set" of socks once a year. I throw ALL of my old white athletic socks out (donate), and get several new packages. I never mix old with new. Why? I love the feel of nice, soft, new socks.
I always buy Hanes socks. I have found I like them the best over Fruit of the Loom etc. But, after ordering this "level of sock, I am sure now that I am a "Sock Snob."
Don't settle on these. Treat yourself to the next level up and find the Hanes packages marked "Premium." You will thank me and yourself because for just a little bit more money (if any), you get socks that thicker, more padded, and softer to your feet. These socks felt very thin, not very soft, and like you were standing on lots of tiny little hard dense cottony balls.
I just exchanged my 24 pairs of this "level" of sock for the Premium. (They come in packs of 6+2 Bonus)
Sadly, I think over the years, even their "Premium" level has gone down in quality. They don't feel as thick as they used to. Honestly I would rather invest (pay) more and get higher quality if I had to than the same and get less. But, it's still the highest quality Hanes has to offer right now. Hanes if you are reading this, put out a "Hanes Deluxe Premium" or "Ultra Soft" level. If you make it, I will buy!
Don't settle for anything less than the Premium! You and your feet deserve it!
