    Holes or if they are worn out on the bottom so much in an area that it looks like a nylon stocking.

    It depends.
    It depends on how much you value your feet.
    It depends if you want an excuse to miss some practice time or a match because you have blisters.

    I use older socks for practice and use the newer ones for playing matches.

    I don't have separate socks for tennis? But in general when they have large holes in the bottom.

    I couldn't initially believe the price of Thorlo socks. Who would buy them?
    But after years of no blisters and cushioned feet, why would I play without them?

    I picture you in the "when they are slightly stained" group, and when you see all of these folks with holes in there socks, you might fall over in a faint.

    Holes. Not just tennis socks, any socks.
