For the longest time, I was baffled as to why many of my socks have a small abrasion a few millimeters large on the top of the foot. It's like a little tufted spot. It finally hit me that that is the area that makes contact with the tongue edge of the butterfly straps when I wear a particular pair of loafers. Happens only on one foot because it wears a little looser. The inside of the tongue is lined, but the edges of the butterfly strap are unfinished "raw" leather. Has anyone else had this before? Solution obviously involves tweaking the fit of the one shoe, but I think the discomfort of doing that would offset the gains of saving a millimeter of hosiery. I'm starting to rationalize it by thinking that little tufted sock piece is my personal rustic sprezzI think I'm just having a personal soliloquy.
