Do you get holes in your socks

specifically big toe area? Long before the socks are worn out otherwise.

I haven't in a long time, but I used to. Trim your big toe's toe nail more frequently. I suspect that'll help.

Yes...I do because both feet have a big toe bunion.
If I wear extra wide shoes...not so much wear.

Another good point. I like/wear shoes that have a roomy toe-box.

Mine wear out in the heel. I remember when I was a kid my dad would darn the heel of his socks when he would get a hole in them. Now when I get a hole in my sock I just throw it away.

I get holes in my heels too after 2 years or so. Then they get thrown away. Was asking originally as gets holes in toes (he says he clips nails) and I thought of a vinyl tape dispenser which would allow you to quickly dispense a 3/4 (or whatever) strip of tape off a wheel and put over the edge of the nail. 3M has an outdoor painting tape that would be perfect.

This. I only get holes in the bottom of the socks at heels after the wear thin. I work from home, and wear no shoes, just socks all day. Well, OK I wear clothes as well but shorts and t-shirt is getting dressed up to go to work.

Cut and file the nail and it will greatly mitigate the problem

I used to get holes in the ball of the foot when I was running. (I suppose there is a technical name for that part of the anatomy.)
Since Uncle Arthur came to visit and decided to stay I don't walk, let alone run, enough to wear out socks.

Can you guess where my socks wear out first? Both feet are the same.

Really no discomfort from them...as long as I wear the right shoes.
Put an end to my downhill skiing in my 30's...the boots have no give in that area.

Usually the heel... maybe once on top of the big toe on one dress sock.
