The persistence of the sock

Although I've had a couple pairs of toe socks over the years, until I read this little clip from 1890, in Babyhood: A Monthly Magazine for Mothers, I hadn't stopped to think that "the power of an elastic stocking is by its persistance very great." I now wear and recommend wearing only socks with a true foot-shaped toe box with toes the widest or toe socks.
