My kingdom for a sturdy sock

We have a problem with socks. For starters, they just don't make 'em like they used to. We seem to go through socks like nobody's business. The heels wear out in no time flat. I purposely buy white socks thick enough to be used as insulation in a wall just so they won't wear out in 3 weeks. They don't seem to wear / shrink / fade evenly. My post-laundry sock sorting routine is a lesson in frustration. All of my socks of a particular style/colour started out identical - now they are varying sizes, some look more faded than others, I have odd numbers of worn out heels.

You would think that with today's space-age technology, they could make a sock thin enough to fit in your shoes that lasts a couple years...
