Long ago, I learned the trick of buying socks in bulk so that when one gets a hole in the toe (mine never get holes in the heels), I toss the worn out sock and stash the one that is perfectly good. Eventually, another sock gets a hole in it, so it gets tossed out while its mate pairs up with the previously stashed sock. In this way, my socks last a lot longer.
Am I the only one with a strategy for making my socks last? How many pair do you have? I have two pair of Ovation Zocks (solid colors) on the way, but I know I need more, but how many more? What's your current tall sock count?
