I loved the way these peds looked and felt. I wore them and washed them once however and now there is a big hole and snag in the sock. Very disappointing!!!!! Barbara, We are glad you liked your sock and they felt good on your feet, however we are sorry to hear your socks were damaged in washing! This could have been because of zipper or something sharp caught on the socks especially since you mention a snag as well. Generally socks don't catch on other items in the wash and to be honest this is the first time we have ever had a report of this. Our customer service personnel will be in touch.
