I always get holes in my socks right away and don't know why. One thing I've noticed though is that the first hole seems to always appear in the same spot
. But, eventually, more holes tend to show up elsewhere, but they take quite a few more months to appear.
I've had my current socks -- cotton socks -- for less than one month
and there's already a hole in one of them. Another has a very thin spot on it; it'll probably have a hole in it within a week or two. I used to think that cotton socks were the problem so I got a few pairs of (cheapish) wool socks a few months ago but, with time, the same thing happened to them and I threw them out. I've been thinking of getting a few pairs of thick SmartWool socks to see if it'll remedy the problem but I'm nervous that the same thing will happen to them. I'm nervous because SmartWool socks aren't exactly cheap. If the same thing happens to them right away that's $100+ down the drain as I tend to throw socks out shortly after holes appear in them.
Any ideas as to why this is happening? I walk on carpet a lot; could this be causing my socks to wear out quickly? I have quite flat feet; could this be causing my socks to wear out quickly?
Thanks. I hope you can help me figure this problem out.
