Who knows about socks? I have not to date found a quality sock they are more like disposable than reusable seems they wear out in just 1 day. Have even tried bamboo socks nothing seems to last. Perhaps a mail order darner service would work.
I like my Denali hiking socks, Green Treat dress socks and a couple of pairs of thick holeproof wonder socks that I just can't seem to wear out, although they are a bit rough. I've had them all for a couple of years, the hiking socks over 5.
I have dozens and dozens of socks; I have had some for years. I never wear them out because none gets worn many times, especially in succession.
My problem is (as discussed in another thread) is that several black holes are located in my house, and socks are considered delicacies by black holes.
Hey Marvin, you should look for socks that don't runaway on their own accord. I've got a cupboard drawer full of unpartnered, unmatching socks.
I suspect, that socks have a gender though I can't tell which is which. One of the partners does a runner.
Anyway I hope my drawer of unpartnered socks will produce some sockettes.
Good luck with the sock hunt!
