I agree with your need to bring back the gray (gray heather actually) but for a slightly less cosmetic reason. The gray have 72% cotton and 14% Hydrotec polyester vs 78% cotton and 8% hydrotec polyester that the white have. I have neuropathy of feet from Chemo and these gray are the only ones that don't shrink down on my feet and cause me pain!! They also stay softer longer and are more durable! PLEASE bring them back

Dear "Gold Toe:" I've purchased approximately 60 grey pairs of your athletic quarte- socks over the past 10 years, along with about 30 pairs of your full-lenght black socks. I think I've been a very loyal customer. But, I'm now disappointed that you stopped making or selling your athletic quarter-socks in grey.
It's a matter of taste I realize; but, the white socks are "right out of the nursing-home." Go to any nursing home and look around. Every 80-year old guy and half the women are wearing white socks and sneakers. And, athletic quarter-socks in black would look really odd with a pair of sneakers. Just my opinion, I realize! But, overall, I've pretty much only worn "Gold Toe" socks for the past 30-years. Other manufacturers (including Adidis) make "quarter-socks or tube socks," but, they are typically all multi-colored and full of "Spandex," making them look like something for a person in "junior-high or high school," plus the total spandex makes them very uncomfortable for me.
I understand you may have some good business reasons for stopping making your quarter-socks grey. But, I think you may be losing a market segment in older customers. Just my humble opinion! I've always been very happy with your products up to now and over the past 30-years! Please bring back the "grey" if you can! Thanks for listening!
PS if you have any inventory of the former grey version, is there a way I could purchase some?
