these gold toe socks are oh. so. soft.

GoldToe socks blanketThanks to Gold Toe for sponsoring this post and for the awesome
socks which I'm wearing right now. All opinions are mine.

Okay, I’ll admit it. I get cold feet a lot. Even when I get into bed at night with Michael.

No, dear readers, I am not insecure. Or a scaredy cat. Or a worrier.

I just literally get cold feet.

I know all of those women’s magazine articles say that wearing socks to bed is a no-no but that advice is likely to change because of these Gold Toe Ultra Soft Oh. So. Soft. socks. They are so cozy, I just smile to myself when I find Michael playing footsie with me in order to get some of that softness for himself.

What’s amazing about these socks is that they actually live up to their name. They are genuinely Oh. So. Soft. Although they feel luxurious, they’re affordable and, unlike most of my other socks, they stay just as soft even after numerous washes.

I’ve been a fan of Gold Toe for years because those signature reinforced toes are really durable, even when I’m way overdue for a pedicure — which is most of the time. Now, I’ve developed a soft spot for these Oh. So. Soft. socks and am pretty much living in them.

I cuddle up on the couch to read with them on.

and I even play tennis with them.

They may not make me a better player but they sure make it easier for me to focus on the game because, unlike my other socks, they don’t fall down or bunch up while I’m playing. And my sneakers just glide over them because they’re so light and, well, did I tell you how soft they are?!

You know I’m a sock person because I’ve shown you my sock drawer in the past. Well, I’m thinking it’s time for me to clean it out again and replace most of them with these Ultra Soft Oh. So. Soft socks. In fact, just saying their name conjures up images of being enveloped in layers and layers of cozy blankets and pillows. And that makes me want to get right back into bed.

With my socks on.

  57. I’m usually barefoot as much as possible, but a good sock is always important when I have to wear them. Usually, my feet are always cold (at least in the winter months). I will definitely try out these socks because I always feel like my other socks bunch up in my shoe and then give me blisters.

  58. I buy Gold Toe brand socks for my husband and son all the time, but not for me! Why is that? I’ll have to check out the women’s socks next time I’m out!

  59. I love socks even in summer… my feet are hardly ever warm so socks are a must have!

  60. Nice! I am barefoot most of the time in the summer but my toes are always in need of some extra soft socks during the Canadian winters.

  61. i usually never wear socks unless i’m hiking.. bc I’m always barefoot at home (asian household) or I wear flip flops year round. Why do they say you shouldn’t wear socks in bed though? I’ve never heard that.
