Let me start by saying I wear a shoe size 8. I bought the largest size in these socks, and when I first got them, they fit PERFECT. I needed something to wear with my loafers, and I thought these would do a great job. After just one day of very moderate walking around in said loafers (I work at a desk), I was already starting to see a big hole form over the top of the big toe of these socks (and yes, I keep my nails trimmed!). These socks would be amazing if they were just a bit more durable. I'm honestly amazed that there aren't more reviewers with this problem!
