    I like Jefferies socks from Yoder Dept Store in Shipshewana Indiana.

    Curley toes

This works great for me when I need to wear something besides my usual Easy Spirit athletic-type shoes. (Of course, losing 30 pounds would also help my feet feel better.) :-O

    OMG it's so funny you would post this question! I have a thing for Hue microfiber socks. I don't like socks that have a lot of cotton in them because they sag! LOL. I found these socks by Hue about 10 years ago, and I buy 6 pr per year and only in black!

    Let us know your favorite, too!

    I have several I like
    gold toe I get at Herbergs and/or Yonkers
    We have a company close (Osage, Iowa) called Fox River great socks
    the Hue microfiber ones
    I will have to look at Women Within and check out those
    when I am traveling I use compression socks (not the medical ones) as when traveling you sit for long periods of time and you also do lots of walking

I wear the bright ones with my Mary Jane style Crocs. Then I feel just like a little kid again. I love socks!
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    I also wear toe sox. Injinji brand. Just love them. No bothersome between the toe issues. They fit great and they have many different versions, so there is something for most everyone. If my toes and feet are happy then the rest of me is too.

    With my motorcycle boots I wear when it rains I get the heavy socks from Harley Davidson. They have a nice padded foot but the tops aren't too thick. With shoes I wear anything with a dachshund on it

    Of course, i only wear socks from November until March so that big drawer of dachshund socks I've been given over the years will probably last me the rest of my life.

    My favorite tennis shoe socks are made by Feetures. They are also my husband's favorite. They are worth every cent of the cost. Once you try them, you can't go back!

    Smart Wool brand. I discovered them a couple of years ago. $20/pair. I loved the one pair so much I stocked up! Yes, you can wear them all year round. Wool is cooling and warmth depending upon the season. Scheelsand and Dick's Sporting Goods carry them. They (Smart Wool) have a website.

    I wear socks when I go bowling or for a walk. I hate socks. They are so uncomfortable always too long in the foot. They make your feet hot and uncomfortable and finally the washing machine eats them. No matter how many I buy always run short.

    it is amazing how many different types of socks there are. I've learnt a great deal thank you all for posting. No socks day today.
