I'll admit it. I like toe socks. I bought my first pair a few years ago just because I thought they were funny, but then fell in love with them for the comfiness factor. Plus, having fabric between your toes is great for avoiding athletes foot, so that's another reason to love the toe socks.
Unfortunately, they're rarely sold mainstream, and when they are it's usually just the wacky-colored ones in the women's department. And the ones they sell on ToeSocks.com are a little pricey at $10-14/pair. But I needs me some new socks, so off I went to buy a few pair.
Then it occurred to me to check eBay first. Buried among the hundreds of obnoxiously colored novelty toe socks, I found one guy who's selling simple, solid-color men's toe socks. In bulk. For the price of three pairs at ToeSocks.com, you can get 12 pairs from this guy. For just $15 more you can get 36 pairs. Or for a total of $64 after shipping (the equivalent of six pairs at the normal price) you get
Now, I certainly don't need 72 pairs of toe socks. 12 would be more than enough for now. But how can I turn down a bargain like that? I mean, it's less than 9 cents a toe for crying out loud!
What the hell am I going to do with all these extra toe socks?
