Innocuous Socks

Actually, it’s more like the innocuous seams on the socks, but that wouldn’t have made as good a title, would it?

I have several pairs of socks that rarely get washed—no, it’s not what you’re thinking—because they rarely get worn.

The toe seam—I’m sure there’s some technical name for that—is ridged. I’ll bet you’re thinking that’s no big deal, but it is to someone whose toes may go in all directions of the compass. A ridge just adds a hurdle in your shoe that your toe(s) need to overcome.

In the future, my sock purchases will be seamless.

  1. I can’t abide sock seams. Sometimes I wear them wrong side out in an effort to avoid them, but usually I spend an hour taking my shoes off, rearranging my socks, and putting my shoes back on. It’s a nuisance.

    • It’s amazing how such a minor detail can cause such great aggravation.

      Another trick I use is to wear the socks so that the seam is underneath my toes. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work with every style of sock.

  2. I have very cold feet and like thicker socks for warmth. A few years ago I discovered Ski Tubes, I think I blogged about them in the past. The Ski Tubes do not have a heel so I wear them with the toe seam on the under part of my foot, it makes for great comfort.

  3. I totally agree! I now make sure when I buy socks that they are seamless! Great post as usual. Nan

  4. 100% agree! Though, those kind of socks make great sock puppets 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2b4vUZ7wR4 (video of Shari Lewis with Lamb Chop and Charlie Horse 4:36)
