Remember back when you didn't like getting socks for the Holidays?

Point me to your favorite winter socks. Because it's cold here. Really, really cold, and every single pair of socks I own has holes. All of them.
I'm looking for women's socks, but I'll take men's if they'll work for me.
So, I go into stores these days, and all I can find are these crappy skin-tight trouser socks for women, because apparently lady-feet don't get cold, or something. This includes the Eddie Bauer outlet, to my bitter disappointment. Yes, I'm going to be wearing these to work, but I wear slacks for the most part, and I have to walk and take several different means of public transportation to get there, and I'm trying not to freeze along the way.
If I search online, and try stuff blindly, I manage to come up with stuff that wears out in about three washes, if that long.
I'd like them to almost up to the knee, and to actually stay up (wow, wouldn't that be nice!)
Softness matters, a lot. I can't stand itchy or scratchy stuff touching me, and I'm really, really sensitive to it. Yes, I have read a thousand people singing the praises of smartwool, and it's tempting, but I own one pair, and I rarely wear them unless I'm desperate. Is there a brand of smartwool that somehow combines a bit more softness?
