Unless, of course, they are socks made from cutting edge technology.
Socrates socks are purported to be virtually indestructible because they get a boost from a number of fancy materials including kevlar, carbon, lycra and military-grade elastic. Why? To reinforce the toe and heel and prevent holes, and to hold them up nice and high on your calf throughout their entire lifespan.
Which is, like, FOREVER. Yup, these socks will never need darning. Buy them now and they may be the socks you are buried in. (Let's be clear, I'm assuming you have many lovely years ahead of you.)

As awesome as they are though, let's do a little what-if scenario: So it's Christmas morning, and your giftee opens the box and sees socks. Let's be honest you need to prepare yourself for either disappointment or puzzlement. You're going to have to explain why these are the only socks they will ever need from now on, and how they are now holding in their hot little hand the latest that science and technology has to offer. And then be prepared for... possibly amazement, but probably still a shrug. I mean, this is an impressive piece of clothing technology, but I truly think that only a true nerd will really appreciate just how special these are.
P.S. Can I get a pair for Christmas? ;)
