Comfortable and well made
on September 22, 2013
The Gold Toe brand of socks has had a reputation of long lasting, comfortable socks. This particular pair lives up to their name. They come about 1 inch below my calf, which isn't as long as I normally like my socks to be, but is comfortable and does not show my legs when I am wearing suits. The toe and heal are comfortable and I never feel like the sock is slipping around on my foot during normal wear. I've had these pair for quite some time and they are still going strong - no noticeable holes or or strings hanging.
If I had a complaint, it would be that the black is beginning to fade on one of my three pair. This could be more about which detergent I use or the quality of the water in my area - but still worth mentioning, just in case it happens to others. I may wear this particular pair more than the other two, although I wear dress socks daily, so it is hard to say that for sure - as I have a draw full. Outside of that, no other real complaints.
Overall, if you are looking for a good pair of dress socks that won't fall apart two second after you wear them or feel like a nanometer of material is covering your foot (some of those cheaper brands are cheaper for a reason) - then you won't go wrong with Gold Toe socks.
