The other part of the toe box isn’t nearly long enough for his foot. He has a mighty monster foot, and this is the first pair of socks I’ve made him where the length of the toe box is a big deal. So there’s that. If he wasn’t in such a damn hurry, I think I would have dyed them – maybe something to match his favorite scent from BPAL, Tombstone. Browns and grays, maybe.
But he’s able to wear them, and he doesn’t whine from the cold any more (at least he didn’t yesterday) when he’s wearing his sandals, so it’s pretty good.
