Ok, I know the title of this thread sounds really weird, but I think once I describe what is happening it will make sense.
It seems that I cannot keep a pair of dress socks very long before they get holes. In some cases, my socks start to develop holes after one wear. I have tried what I would believe to be higher end socks ($10 per pair) and low-end socks (6 pair for $10). I have tried 100% cotton, wool, and various blends. I have even tried to wear black athletic socks with polyester to help wick away moisture. Also, I thought the additional thickness would have helped the socks to last, but to no avail.
I thought it might be my feet at first, as they were not the particularly smooth. Actually, they were not smooth at all. However, I have been working on getting rid of the hard skin and they actually look pretty good. My wife doesn't jump like some just swiped some 40-grit sandpaper against her leg if my foot happens to bump her leg or foot while watching television.
I also wear orthotics, but I have several pairs. I seem to develop the holes regardless of the orthotic I am wearing.
Finally, I believe it is my shoes. I do not develop the same holes in my white socks that I wear with my sneakers to the gym. However, I have three pairs of dress shoes that I have in rotation during the work week. A pair of black Johnston & Murphy boots, the same pair in brown, and a pair of J & M shoes. For some reason, they keep rubbing holes in my socks. The shoes fit properly, so I am at a loss. I am also tired of buying socks once a month.
As crazy as it may sound, has anyone else had this problem?
Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance,
