Product Description

Product Description

Made in Vermont We live and work in Vermont. Our backyard is the perfect testing ground to make the finest Premium All Weather Performance Socks. We ski, snowboard, hike, bike and run in the most unforgiving climate in the lower 48. It is under these conditions that we design, test and manufacture our socks.

Darn Tough socks are made for long-lasting comfort on the trail, in the mountains, or for daily use with high quality Merino wool blended construction. The socks feature dense cushioning all around foot and around the shin for protective comfort while elastic in the arches supports the foot. Ribbing above the ankle ensures a proper fit and invisible seam, ring-toe construction ensures that the socks will fit the toes without bunching up. Built to maintain their shape and sturdiness for the long haul, the socks have reinforced heels and toes and are made with 69 percent custom shrink treated Merino wool, 27 percent nylon, and 4 percent lycra spandex. The socks carry an unconditional lifetime guarantee to remain comfortable for the duration.

I was Darn tired of freezing my feet off in my cold cement floor shop every winter so I finally splurged on a good pair of workboots and decided that good boots deserved great socks so I ordered 2 pairs of Darn Tough socks. Wore them 7 days a week for 2 weeks washing them every other day with little or no odor. Saw a little pilling after the 1st wash (tumble dry low heat with no shrinkage) but the pilling never got any worse (been wearing them most days for a month now). I do wish they were a little higher on the calf. With the lifetime guarentee the Darn Tough socks will last assuming you are willing to send them back for any needed repairs sometime in the distant future but since I'm a lazy soul who will never send worn out socks back for replacement these socks seem great with this limited testing time (a month).

Update, Well I've had these socks for a full year now and they get better with age. For 6 months (cooler months) I've worn these socks every day, 2 days worn and then grab the 2nd pair I ordered last year. Machine wash cold, dry on medium with my normal laundry and they still fit great, even better after a few washings. I wear them outside without shoes on the cement driveway (even on wet days) to get my mail ect., they seem to dry within a minute of getting back to the house. Walk on the grass in them taking the garbage out... and they barely show any signs of wear and the drying on medium heat with my jeans ect doesn't seem to make them shrink... what more can you ask for so... I ordered 11 pairs for my family (and 2 extra pairs myself) for Christmas presents (got a different color for the women) and thus far everybody (even my Mother) likes them. I intend to try some of their CoolMax socks for summer wear. expensive??? yep, until you've worn a pair for a few weeks and then the value really shows.

My husband is in the Army and constantly struggles with athletes foot and blisters from hyper-hydrosis (extreme foot sweating). He sometimes gets blisters just from everyday walking around in his combat boots, and always gets blisters every time he runs in the mornings. Yesterday he trained on land-navigation over difficult terrain in the pouring rain. He came home soaking wet and excited about how these socks kept his feet warm in the wet morning and cool when the sun came out from behind the clouds. Most of all he was excited because he had no blisters!

I was skeptical to purchase socks for this price point, as I had previously purchased Under Armor for this same price except for 3 pairs. I figured that was the best socks would ever achieve, little did I know there was a whole 'nother PLANE that the quality of socks can achieve, and these are it.

I loved my Under Armor socks, but they slowly became worn out, and always fell down my calf and bunched up to the top of my boot(Im in the Navy, and am on my feet 99% of the day outside in extreme heats and extreme colds), they are significantly better than Hanes in my opinion.

Let me cut to the chase though as this isnt a review for Under Armor.

These Darn Tough socks live up to their name and MORE, they are extremely comfortable, extremely well cushioned, and wick moisture better than any brand Ive ever owned, as well as keep my feet from smelling horrendous(as well as the sock) after a day of work(every day after work I had to throw the socks I wore in the wash as they would smell up whatever room they were in).

The moisture wicking capability of Wool is INSANE, I figured synthetics were the pinnacle of performance socks. The Under Armor socks I own(Ive owned every type they make, they are actually made by Gold Toe)can not hold a candle to these things, not only do they excel at the things Ive mentioned, but they are also the best sock Ive worn that manages to keep my feet at the perfect temperature, if its cold out, they are warm and toasty, if its scorching hot out, they are cool and wick the sweat VERY VERY well even if they are thick.

I will start off by saying that I was extremely impressed by these socks. The day I got them I was heading to the smokies so I gave them a proper test run there through dense forest up to rugged mountain tops and all in between. I did not get a single blister while wearing these. I always had a tendency to blister while wearing cotton socks because sweat is absorbed by them and we all know that is no good. Also, While hiking downhill my toes often would hurt by getting bunched up in the front of my boots but these socks have enough cushion to eliminate that. Shoot, they eliminated all my foot woes. Just to further emphasize the glory of these socks, I bought a pair of smartwool socks and tried them one morning on the trip and had a blister in under 3 hours. Then I switched back to these and forgot I even had a blister! Oh and all the stuff you read about merino wool not holding odors is completely true. I wore these for 25 miles over 3 days with no washing and I could barely smell anything on them afterwards. No excuses. Pamper your feet and buy these.
