I think this will remain a debate until someone actually knits one sock with reinforcement and one without, and wears both until the first one springs a hole. And even then the test wouldn't be scientific -- maybe the wearer treads more heavily on one leg than the other. Maybe we could get Consumer's Digest to run one of their abrasion tests.....
