Gold Toe Sock Bzzz and Boxer Giveaway (exp 12/20)

I've been wearing Gold Toe socks for what seems like forever. I think just about all of my dress socks are from them. Since I just started having to wear a suit again daily, its back to wearing dress socks, too, and out came the Gold Toe.

The timing couldn't have been more perfect for a recent BzzAgent campaign. For Gold Toe socks... They do word of mouth (WOM) marketing where they give you the product to try and you tell your friends about it, honestly. Saved me from buying more socks as they provided six pairs to try out, and they're all getting used.

While I got to try these for free, I wouldn't have complained had I bought these on my own outside the promotional campaign. They're that good. They're comfortable, stylish, and wearable. I've found these newer socks to be much more comfortable than the older ones I had, and not just because they are newer. Their material is just softer. While most of my older socks are solids, I really liked the design patterns on these newer ones. Nothing too out there but enough to give yourself a little style under the suit. If you do want louder designs, they are certainly available. Not many people may notice them when you are wearing them, but if they were too flashy, that just wouldn't be a good thing. They offer reinforced toes with comfort seams, keeping them extremely comfortable, and they stayed up on the calf quite well.

They've been worn through a few washes now and are no worse for the wear. Still as comfortable as ever. The one negative thing I found was in the sizing. They ran a little large for my tastes, affecting how they fit in the heal. While I have wide size 10 1/2 (6E) feet, they were actually a little big on them. Not much to complain about but they could have been a little shorter for my tastes. Not much shorter, just a little.

Hopefully, these will last as long as all my other Gold Toes. Perhaps its time to replace some of the older ones with this newer model.


Which brings us to my first giveaway. Along with the socks came a three pack of men's boxer shorts. Size L (36-38). Since I'm not going to use them, I figured they'd make the perfect giveaway. Enter below for your chance to win. I'm ending it on the 20th so there is a slight chance you could get them by Christmas. It would require a quick confirmation of the win and me getting it out the next day for there to be any chance. No promises though as mail isn't the quickest this time of year, but it would be sent from the big regional post office in Boston where all the area's mail goes through. So from my side at least it would get out quickly. A slow confirmation would ruin any chance of Christmas delivery if that was a concern.

By the way, since you've read this far.. along with the socks and boxer, BzzAgent provided a ton of $5 off $25 Gold Toe purchase coupons for Kohl's that expire end of year (12/31/12). If you're interested in one (or more), if you send postage via PayPal, I can send you a coupon. Contact via email/Twitter/Facebook if interested. The coupons will probably be great for after Christmas sales.

Win It!

1 lucky winner will receive a Gold Toe Boxer 3-pack, Large (36-38)
