9 pairs of H&J indestructible socks 😎

Been using these for 30 years now. Got turned onto them in an outfitters who recommended them as I wear boots and a lot of the time with steel toecaps, and as a result I can kill a pair of normal socks in 3 weeks.

On average, these last 9 years before the first hole appears.

If you want hard wearing long lasting socks, they are the ones to grab.

Not counting my special purpose warm socks, I maintain a collection of plain white athletic socks, and black socks. Every couple years, I throw them all away and buy all new white and black ones, all the same. Life is too short for shit socks.

I took the advice of a co worker years ago who got tired of trying to match socks. With 3 daughters he just got sick of it.

Threw all his socks away, went to Walmart and bought like 10 packs of identical socks. Said you can just reach into a drawer in pitch darkness and always have 2 matching socks. And with 100 pair they last forever.

That was about 10 years ago, I do the same. The grey ones with reinforced heel and toe.

I wear steel toes all day as well and mine wear out at the heel before the toe.

Mismatched or cheap socks is one of life's greatest petty aggravation.

I bought 12 pairs of Puma socks a few weeks ago. I'm just gonna bite the bullet and buy 6 more packs and throw away everything else.

This will be a serious quality of life improvement.
