The Caveman dumped an armload of old socks in the trash the other day. Ever the copycat, I too was motivated to cull my own sock drawer. Alas there was no ‘armload’ going out from my stash.
There was an evolution of running socks in my drawer: Wrightsock, Thorlo Experia, Injinji, Balega plus many other brands that were never my main squeeze. Many were dingy, some had small holes not big enough to affect performance so they were spared the trash heap.
Why am I saving running socks that are no longer in rotation?
- I wore some to Pretty Muddy and pitched them, along with the shoes.
- Running socks ain’t cheap.
- On rare occasions I wear them with civilian clothes.
- I am a sock hoarder.
Do you keep too many socks? When is the ‘right time’ to throw them out?
