Gold Toe

During the early part of last century, two German immigrants founded a small mill in Bally, Pennsylvania to manufacture men's hosiery and as a tribute to the country that adopted them, they named their company Great American Knitting Mills. From the start, Great American set out to look for "golden opportunities" in the marketplace. Ironically, the most fruitful and long lasting reward was to come from Great American's humble efforts to answer the needs of Americans hard hit by the Great Depression of 1929. Consumers wanted hosiery that would wear better and last longer than ever before, so Great American introduced a sock with a gold reinforcing yarn sewn in the toe. Before long, Americans everywhere were asking for the durable "sock with the gold toe." GOLDTOE® hosiery had emerged as one of the leading brands in America, and The Standard of Quality in the Industry. During 2002 the Company changed its name to Gold Toe Brands, Inc. Today, the GOLDTOE® brand represents more than one-half of all department store sales of men's dress socks in the United States. And in recent years, GOLDTOE® has been making its mark in new segments of the hosiery industry: in 1983, GOLDTOE® introduced a women's line, followed by a boys line in 1986 and a women's tights line in 1992.


Great socks, happy feet
By scott, from Minneapolis, MN | July 07, 2014

They are a very nice sock. Mostly cotton, not too thick but much thicker than classic nylon. Very comfortable and will keep you feet cool and comfortable. They do not have a thick fluffy sole/foot area. The cotton is good density. They last for years. I have bought them for many years. I have a 12 narrow foot and purchage the 11-14. They fit fine with plenty of stretch. I am sure they would work for a 14D. They will shrink just slightly - no problem. They are great.HINT: Take them out of the bag, put in dryer for 5 minutes (no heat), empty lint trap, turn inside out, repeat. Then repeat all of this. Then wash with an old towel in warm setting. Now, you are ready to go. They do carry some initial lint but after that, they are perfect.

Great Cotton Athletic Socks
By CTR, from Washington, DC | July 06, 2014

Great cotton athletic socks -- Comfortable, cushioning for even long sessions of hot-weather tennis. Too soon to tell how well they hold up under repeated laundering. Biggest downside: Having to buy a dozen pairs, which should be a lifetime supply.

still a good sock
By LLLD, from Prescott, AZ | May 15, 2014

I always buy Gold Toe and was happy to find someone that still sold the denim color. These socks are a little thinner than the ones I used to buy in a store but still a good sock.
