BJJ wearing out my socks

My local BJJ club wear socks on the mat, not something I did when I did Judo. Anyhow I'm running out of socks. After each session my socks are pretty badly worn out.
 
Any suggestions or advice
 
Cheers

    Why do they wear socks? Cold floor ? I never wear them for BJJ unless its cold in which case I buy packs of the crap socks from Primark which are dirt cheap.

    Where do you train? My coach would never let me wear socks on the mat. If it's not allowed in competition then he won't allow it in training.

    I just asked if it was ok not to wear socks & it was fine. I can understand the reasons behind it regards infection control however,
