A few years ago, I bought some Gold Toe socks for my husband. They were plain black socks with yellow ("gold") at the toes, great for every day wear. They were well made and lasted much longer than his other pairs.
Recently, I received some Gold Toe women's socks for review. I was curious how they would stack up against the men's. My first choice were the Animal Print Fashion Pack. The set includes three pairs of socks. They are about half cotton and half nylon, with a little spandex thrown in. Just as the men's socks my husband likes, these women's socks have reinforced toes for longer wear and durability. These socks are very comfortable and I love the fit. However, the colors and patterns were too dark for my liking. Looking at the colors available online, I think the Royal and Azalea color palettes may work much better for this design.
The other set of Gold Toe socks I picked was the Stripes and Dots Fashion in navy. The set includes three pairs - one in very dark navy, almost black; another with narrow stripes and a third with small dots. They are made of Pima cotton and nylon, again with 3% of spandex. The toes are reinforced and the socks look like they will hold well in the washer and dryer. These socks are a joy to wear and they stay put very well. The set is available in three other color combinations, and I love them so much, I plan to buy one of each. Right now, they sell at 50% off - three pairs for $8 are a great deal, considering the quality and feel of these socks. I never get socks in my stocking - poor me, right? - so now may be the time to stock up. Shipping from the Gold Toe online store is $4.99, or free on orders over $50. Good socks + good shoes = happy feet for me.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
