I wear white cotton crew socks basically every day, two pairs on workout days. I wear them with high-impact athletic shoes, work/walking shoes, and occasionally heavy work boots. I want them to last (no holes, no saggy tops), I want them to be comfortable, and I want a fair value for my money.
So when I retired my old inventory nearly two years ago, I picked up five different brands of white crew socks.
Durability: As I wore the socks, I tried to be very diligent about 'rotating stock' -- pulling socks to wear from the right-side of the drawer, putting in freshly-laundered ones on the left. In theory, they all received about the same amount of wear-and-tear.
Wigwam (2/5): Unraveled at the top quickly -- after the first washing, three socks; after the third or fourth, almost every sock had loose tops. These thick socks took around a year before I started seeing holes in the toes or heel.
Under Armour (4/5): Some unraveling around the 8 or 9 month mark, no holes until year two.
Fruit of the Loom (3/5): Little unraveling, but heels thinned before the end of the first year, leading to holes.
Hanes Cushion Crew (3/5): Modest unraveling, but moderate holes at toes and heels around the 9-12 month mark.
Gold Toe Cotton Crew Athletic (5/5): Outstanding -- so far, no unraveling; two toe holes, one heel hole.
Comfort: There's two factors for me -- first, softness; second, thickness/padding. Also, I'm not looking for a compression sock (like for when I fly, or if I develop CHF) -- nothing *too* tight (and none of them were).
Wigwam (3/5): Very thick (for a crew sock), well-padded; stiff -- even after months of washing, they almost felt starched.
Under Armour (5/5): Good thickness; started soft, became even softer after a few washes.
Fruit of the Loom (3/5): Felt slightly thin; good softness.
Hanes Cushion Crew (4/5): Good thickness; slightly stiff, but not as bad as Wigwam).
Gold Toe Cotton Crew Athletic (5/5): Thick, but not too thick; softest out-of-the-plastic, and better as time went by.
Value: All bought on the same date, non-sale prices (just standard Amazon prices)
Wigwam Super 60 Crew ($2.97/pr)
Under Armour Charged Cotton Crew ($2.50/pr)
Fruit of the Loom Heavy Duty Crew ($1.81/pr)
Hanes Cushion Crew ($1.78/pr)
Gold Toe Cotton Crew Athletic ($1.72/pr)
Actually, even after being on my feet for 10+ hours/day and washing these over and over again they still hold up. These are thick enough to give padding but not too thick to cramp your shoes. They seem to wick away moisture quite well, better than almost any other sock I have used. I think these socks also keep your feet warm in mildly cold temperatures.
One of the only negative aspects I have found is that they loosen up around the ankle after hundreds and hundreds of washes and usage, but for the price any other competition will as well. I will continue to purchase these socks for my ever day use.
As others have noted, gold toe standards seem to have dropped. Immediately upon putting these on I noticed the sole didn't have the cushioned feel that my gold toes used to have. Too bad, wont buy gold toe again- too expensive for this quality level. Two stars is generous.
I hope this information is helpful for other buyers,

But what it doesn’t say in the title is that the gold ties are reinforced so if like me, you often wear a hole in your sock, then this will be no more.
But money returned immediately, a good company to deal with.
If I knew this ahead of time I would have shopped else where and with some one else. One assumes when the number shown means pairs not individuals . I felt I got ripped off . - Ted Galetski .
After doing some research online checking out reviews of different brands, my decision came down to one of three choices -- going back to Fruit of the Loom, or trying out Hanes or Gold Toe. The Hanes socks were the cheapest, but I didn't like how the company imprinted the word "Hanes" on the bottoms of all their socks in big red writing. The Fruit of the Loom socks were my next choice and about $10 cheaper than Gold Toe, but after reading so many reviews about their quality having gone down so significantly over the years, I decided against purchasing them. So that left me with just Gold Toe.
Now keep in mind, I'm not the type of person to spend $26 on only 6 pairs of socks, which is why I was a bit hesitant to go with the Gold Toe brand in the first place, which seems to be the most expensive of all the various brands out there. Nevertheless, I decided to give them a try anyway. So far, I've been using these Gold Toe socks for a little over a month and I'm glad I spent the extra money on them. Originally, I thought that crew-length was going to be way too short, so I was trying to find something a little bit longer, but it ended up being just the right size. It goes up about halfway to my kneecap and it's the same height as the old Fruit of the Loom socks I used to get in the past. When I first took the Gold Toe socks out of the packaging, they seemed a little bit small to get my feet into, but now after using them for a bit, they've stretched out to the perfect fit.
I don't know how well these socks will last over time, especially with regards to the elastic bands at the top which prevent them from falling down, but so far, I'm very impressed and satisfied. If the socks are still holding up this well a year or two down the road, then I think Gold Toe will be my new go-to brand. It's a shame though that they don't have a greater presence in retail stores. I couldn't find them in any of the stores around here, which is why I had to get them from Amazon.
Would have been great socks if they weren't broken by the manufacturer.
However, out of the 6 pairs two socks had a hole / tear right at the border where the gold toe part was.
I am curious to see how durable these socks will be in the long run.
