Very Disappointed; Not Classic Gold Toe Quality
on July 11, 2011
Bought these, hoping for classic gold toe quality (nice heft, thick cotton cushioning, long life).
Unfortunately, I was completely disappointed. While these are a slight step up from cheapie Hanes socks from the big box store, these are NOT the same quality we used to get from Gold Toe.
The six pair I bought shrunk, pilled like mad (bits of cotton sluffed off inside the sock after every wash) and they all developed holes within 3 months of wear. No, I don't use bleach. They simply were not made of very high quality cotton and wore through at the friction point at the ball of each foot.
I won't buy Gold Toe socks again until I hear that they've returned to their classic standard.
Why, oh why, can't women get the same high quality socks that men can buy so easily? I hope Gold Toe reads the mail and improves their manufacturing standard. Until then, I opt out.
