by Bill Love the features of these high cotton content socks!
I've been buying 6 pairs of these socks at a time for 15+ years, plus more of the non-athletic versions. They all tend to last me about 3-5 years so my inventory sort of rolls as I phase in new pairs whenever I discover thinning old pairs. The white ones will yellow after a year or so. I use either white (or the non-athletic black or brown version) every day, all year 'round. Favorite features:
1. High COTTON content (79%) makes them breathe, stay dry and keep my feet cool in summer and warm & dry in winter. Releases perspiration so my feet don't get that sticky feeling (or stinking smell!). I also wear breathable shoes.
2. The small amount of plastic, man-made material (11% POLYESTER, 9% NYLON, 1%: SPANDEX) gives them just the right amount of elastic so they don't fall down even during fitness training and running and always return to shape when I take them off or wash them. Even when they are a couple of years old!
3. The significant COTTON content makes just the right amount elastic. Other socks I've tried, made of too much plastic, are too tight around my lower calf and will make bluish dents around my legs where they are tight, feeling uncomfortable after a few hours. But I can wear these for 20+ hours and not even notice they're on! No hurting, deformed calves at the end of the day!
I appreciate these socks so much I just had to write a review!

by CampinGrandma Top hems frayed out after 2-4 washings
I've been a long-time fan of ladies' Gold Toe socks and was delighted to see them offered for men. What a disappointment when 4 of 12 socks came unstitched at the top hem when washed. They were purchased in June of 2013.

Rated 2 out of 5 by upset I do not like the sizing of socks!
I would like to know why we have to buy socks in sizes from one size to another. Why not just size 7, 8 etc? I have guys that do NOT like socks that their size is in the middle and they have "left over" that bundles on their toes. Who came up with this sizing? I hate this. Even women have this problem. I am a woman and I wear a size 7 1/2 shoe and have to buy socks that go from one size to another only to have a sock that is uncomfortable!!!!! Please go back to regular sizes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rdb12 Only the black ones are mostly cotton
The two gray shades are two thirds synthetic so I will not be wearing them. Do people really put polyester on their feet? Donating them to charity.
