I have around 25 pairs of socks, no two pair identical. Laundry day is like a game of Concentration.

having eleventyteen pairs of identical black socks doesnie work either and here's why it's because in fact they arnie all as identical as they're supposed to be and in fact some of them turn out to be cankle-inducing wee bastards whereas others are perfect and comfy with just the right snug ness neither horribly strangulating nor sloppily loose with the all the consequential aggressive bunching that entails, and trying to sort them out from the laundry OUT basket in poor light at this time of year is impossible and you can never get that favourite comfy pair to match up with its partner (which is prolly went to a parallel universe via the mysterious black hole at the back of the washing machine anyway) so you end up of a morning putting one strangulator on one foot and one aggressive buncher on the other foot which feels horrible although admittedly it's only for the first few seconds after you've put them on or until you go about your business and begin concentrating on other matters for the day, but still.

Seems my sock sorting problem is zero's sock matching solution. (Who said the sock thread had to be all whining and problems...new and improved sock thread is productive and helpful too).

Only* clearly mismatched sock pairs can help you match the comfy pairs together, and it helps to ID which One sock has gone thru the black hole....*short of monogramming each pair with different color thread...*or sewing on labels...*or many other sock matching solutions no doubt possible with some more consideration given to solving the problem.

What other sock problem/solutions are possible do you suppose?

look, if you want to look like coco the clown by wearing non-matching, silly socks in every colour of the rainbow that's entirely your own affair.

Maybe if you branched out a bit, and with a little persistence, you'd find your perfect match.

Frieda found this and posted it elsewhere but I think applying its principles would address your problem, zero:
