Brand

Gold Toe Brands, Inc got their start in the early 20th century in Bally Pennsylvania. In 1919 three immigrants came to the United States with a dream. Rudolf Abrams eventually joined Fritz S. Stern, Fritz Bendheim, and J. Kugleman in 1923.

They began making men's dress socks during the Great Depression, ensuring that every pair had a durable toe. Each pair of socks had a toe that featured high-quality Irish linen, which was popular at the time. This made their socks resistant to holes and fraying, allowing customers to keep their socks for long periods of time.

The problem came when customers couldn't tell the difference between their socks and the ones from their competitor. They had the brilliant idea to incorporate some gold acetate thread into the toes of the socks so customers could visibly tell theirs apart from the others. This not only helps the brand to be more distinguishable on the shelves, but it lets them stand out. When you're at the store looking at the sock rack, you will see a lot of the same, but then you see these socks with their gold toes. It catches the eye very nicely.

After the success of the gold toe design, the company decided it was time to change its name. They became known as the Gold Toe Brands, Inc. in 2002. Then, in 2011, they merged with Gildan Activewear and expanded their brand.

Yes, Gold Toe Brands, Inc still focuses on their line of dress socks, but they have branched out into other products as well. In 1983 added women's socks into the mix and then in 1986, they started producing boys socks. Eventually, the brand began selling girls tights. They now sell a plethora of products, from formal socks to casual and athletic. If you want a pair of socks for a specific occasion or activity, chances are they will have what you are looking for.

Durability

It can be super frustrating when you're out and about, and you can feel the socks inside your shoes start to tear. It is annoying when you take off your shoes at the end of a long day just to see one of your toes poking through the sock. When you are wearing socks, for whatever activity, you want to make sure that they are going to be durable. Holey socks are not acceptable to most people, and you shouldn't have to deal with that.

The beauty of the Gold Toe Crew Socks is that they are durable. The toes are reinforced to ensure they are staying strong. Gold Toe makes sure to pay extra attention to the design and construction of the toe area of their socks. One of their main goals is to ensure your toes don't come out to play while you're on the go.

It's not only the toes that are going to stay intact. No, the heels aren't reinforced like the toes are, but that doesn't mean they can't be durable. You should have no issues with the Gold Toe Crew Socks getting holes in the heels either.

Additionally, they will not start to unravel or fray like some of the other crew socks on the market. They are an all-around durable pair of socks!

Comfort

Comfort is a crucial factor to most of your clothing, whether you're talking about your socks or anything else you are wearing. Your feet need to be comfortable too. Since you generally wear socks with most shoes, it's essential that you find a pair that is going to fit you well and prevent discomfort.

The Gold Toe Crew Socks have a decent amount of comfortability that customers can really appreciate. They feature a fully cushioned design with the right amount of thickness. Thick enough to bring you some padding and comfort but not too thick that it feels bulky and burdensome.

Additionally, they feature a comfortable toe seam. It's not going to distract you or get in your way while you're out and about.

The soft cotton materials of the Gold Toe Crew Socks are incredibly comfortable. They are soft right when you take them out of the package, but customers stated that after washing them several times, they just feel even better. They also have a little stretch to them so you can get the perfect fit for added comfort.

Fit

When buying socks, you want to make sure that you find a pair that will the size of your feet. If you end up with an ill-fitting pair then you will experience discomfort throughout the day, nobody wants that.

The Gold Toe Crew Socks are available in a couple of different sizes so you can find a pair that best fit your needs. You can get them for shoe sizes 6-12.5 (sock size 10-13 or shoe size 12-16 (sock size 13-15). If you do not know what size you need, you can always take a peek at a size chart, but if you know what shoe size you wear, then this is generally an easy pick.

The problem some customer have with the Gold Toe Crew Socks is the way the cuffs fit. They have stated that they are a little too tight for their liking, and the socks don't come up as high as they would like. It appears that even though you get the larger size socks, you still aren't getting any extra room in the leg and cuff. Some consumers complained that they dig into their lower leg and calf while they are wearing, causing some discomfort unless they pull them down a little.

Other than the tightness in the legs, however, they seem to fit pretty well.

Materials

The Gold Toe Crew Socks are made out of a blend of 82% cotton, 10% nylon, 7% polyester, and 1% spandex. The cotton that makes up the socks is all produced n the United States.

The soft materials help increase the overall comfort level of the socks, bringing you a more pleasant experience. However, some customers complained that the materials felt a little too thin and cheap for their liking. Again, other customers thought that it was just the right amount of thickness. It seems to be more of a personal preference on the thickness of your socks.

The Gold Toe Crew Socks offer a decent amount of ventilation to help keep you cool and dry while you're out and about. Whether it's a hot day or you are going hard at the gym, you can count on your socks, letting your feet breathe.

In addition to the breathability of the Gold Toe Crew Socks, they also have some decent moisture control. The socks feature AquaFX Moisture Control to help keep them dry and your feet cozy. This technology is going to help wick away the moisture from your sweat, helping to keep it nice and dry.
