Hanes USED to be a good sock but these are as bad as worn out socks with no cushion and paper thin.
Send Hanes a message we dont want this garbage quality and dont buy. He is using this for working outside doubled and expect them to be in garbage very soon. Totally Disgusted , would give minus 1 if I could. waste of time and money
I have a set of Hanes socks (grey stitching) from four years ago that mostly are still good enough to wear. After three years, I thought I should replace them. I bought another set (red stitching) not knowing any better and they lasted less than a year. I then bought these, intentionally spending more on them than the set I bought a year ago in search of better quality. These socks were demolished after just TWO washes! Fortunately I still have some four-year-old socks to keep me going for now... Why is it so hard to find quality socks?
Attached photo shows one of these socks unwashed (straight out of the package on the left), another one of these socks after I attempted to put it on for the second time (after just the second wash, in the center), and one of my four-year-old socks that is still wearable (right).
DO NOT BUY THESE SOCKS!
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)
On the plus side the elastic in the cuff of the socks have consistently performed well.
I have found Gold Toe socks to have stronger toes, but inconsistent quality of the elastic in the cuffs.
I will have to find another brand of socks. It really shouldn't be this difficult to find decent socks -- but apparently it is.
I will go with another brand next time.
