i need to find quality socks that won't fall apart

my husband has always had this problem. he buys supposedly quality socks and ends up walking holes into them within 2 weeks. he doesn't have a single pair of socks w/o holes in them. he's not a heavy mad or a heavy walker and he only wears his socks to work, to the gym, or out, never around the house. he washes them after each use. someone please tell me they've had the same problem and know a brand/type of sock that won't fall apart so easily

  • Does he keep his toenails trimmed really short? I've found my husband will wear holes in them if his nails get anywhere past the nail bed.
    We buy Hanes

  • If you get a good answer let me know. Dh has the same problem with his and it drives him nuts.

  • Do his shoes have a seam that may be rubbing on the sock?

  • Gold Toe socks are the absolute best. I buy my DH both dress and casual socks and he very rarely gets a hole. He has some pairs that have to be 6-7 years old. They are a little pricier, but well worth it. (You can also find them on sale!)

  • I agree with Scuba, Gold Toe makes great socks. I buy them for our entire family. My kids are rough on socks and they hold up to them.
