Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
First off, let me just say that there is nothing in this world quite as refreshing as putting on a new pair of socks. There's just something about sling your foot into a brand new sock that just makes the world seem like a better place. With that being said, let me tell you about my new sock adventure.
I've been in the process of finding a job for the last 3-4 months. It seems like no one is wanting to hire a woman who has been out of the workforce for the last 5 years, even with as good of an excuse as being a stay-at-home momma for the duration. Rant aside, I finally landed a couple of interviews. One was with a bank and the other was for a counseling firm. Even if they were dressy apparel type jobs, I am always one to dress up for an interview. So I pulled out my nice slacks and a pretty shirt, got out my flats... and realized that I had no dressy socks.
After hours of hunting at the various stores around here, I finally had to give up. I couldn't find a nice pair of trouser socks anywhere. I ended up wearing a pair of hot pink ankle socks to the interview because they matched my shirt, but I was self-conscious and knew that they said way more about my personality than was required for an interview.
Then the opportunity to review socks came up and I knew it was time to get a nice pair for such occasions
Gold Toe® Socks are made with the finest yarns and reinforced for longer, more comfortable wear. Our toe seams are specially flattened for a smooth fit. Our heels are always well rounded for support and comfort.
Gold Toe® Socks have long been the smart choice because they fit better, feel better, and last longer.That's the product description, and I have to say, they're right on target. I tried a pair on as soon as I got them (see the beginning paragraph about my love for new socks) and I was in heaven. They are soft and comfortable, yet let your legs breathe. I just know I could wear these for hours without my feet sweating. Gross, I know. But still - they don't bunch up at the toes, they lay flat on my heel, and they have a delicate but sophisticated design that made me feel pretty.
I chose the Knee High Pattern Trouser Pack because I knew I would need a little variety in my sock choices.
I love the argyle look, and the thicker elastic on the top helps keep them from falling down. A huge deal to me, because I don't want to be adjusting loose knee-highs in the middle of an interview or conference.
Overall, I am definitely pleased with Gold Toe and plan to buy more in the future. I love that they have styles for men, women, and children!
