Staying accustomed to tradition and adapting to the changing trends is what creates an everlasting brand. A brand that produces over 140 million socks a year and that has been in business for more than 80 years has what I would like to call “The Golden Touch”. Gold symbolizes success, luxury, sophistication and quality. All of which signifies Gold Toe’s association with sock royalty and being one of the top sock producers in the United States. Being recognized by their iconic “Golden Toe”, this company attention to detail is evident in all of its line of socks.
Designs, patterns and graphics are all used to popularize the visual appeal of the common sock. You can apply an image of the New York skyline and instantly you have a “hot” sock. I refer to these type of socks as novelty items or a fad, eventually graphic heavy socks will go out of style. Expression is all in the design, one design that has symbolized prestige and wealth has always been the Argyle. Oh argyle, the king of patterns has stood against the test of time. Call it the “old man” pattern or call it boring, but rest assure it has garnered more attention than you can imagine.
Check out the incredible Green Argyle 2734F Fashion sock from Gold Toe. From the packaging, the sock appears to be your ordinary argyle sock that you might find from any other company. At first glance, the socks may not standout or pop like some of the fashion socks on the market. We have to remember that Gold Toe specializes in dress socks. However, this sock is anything like your ordinary dress sock, the fine combed cotton, nylon and spandex works wonderful together. Although its argyle, the sock still has a contemporary styling to it and not only looks good but feels amazing. After wearing this sock for 8 hours, I could not help but take my shoes off every so often to feel the amazing quality of the fibers working together.
The toe seams are smooth for comfort and reinforced for durability, it is the golden toe, I would like to think. There was one issue with this particular pair, I always look at the size of the sock. With that said, it seems this sock runs a little big in the heel area. Usually, this is because the sock maybe too big, but this pair is in my size range.The crew sock has a fantastic snugness due to the nylon, cotton, rib knit upper panel and not to mention the spandex all working together. Another high point, I truly applaud Gold Toe on is pricing of their product. I can get a pair of high quality and very durable socks for only $7.00. Not to mention, only the sale price of some of their product can be easily yours for $4.69. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see why Gold Toe is a customer favorite and has managed to have its long run of success.
I truly believe this sock and many other Gold Toe socks were designed for the man who care about how he dressed (This statement is not gender specific, because Gold Toe produces women and children socks… and for the record I buy Gold Toe for my kids because they are so rough on their socks). With a pair of nice loafers or a pair of freshly polished wingtips, this pair of Gold Toes will blow the minds of anyone looking for a well made dress sock.
