I got so tired of having to buy socks all the time.
Wow I started with another sock brand of wool socks and was unhappy that they wore out extremely quickly.
I'm a hiker and like all the different designs.

SIZING: I ordered my usual Smart Wool size-SMALL, but they ended up too small after washing and dryer drying. [I dry on a setting 2 out of 4 levels on my old (Harvest Gold ) Maytag dryer, so it really isn't very hot.] Now have Medium. That said, interestingly, my latest Smart Wools, purchased, like, 6 months ago are also Medium. My shoe size has remained the same...! 6 1/2 Keen Brand - been using them for 3,4 years now, for your reference.

I talked directly to the kind folks at Darn Tough. They seem like a small (family?) operation. We made arrangements for me to send back the socks for an exchange and because of my chemical /dye sensitivity talked to me about the sock with them IN HAND. I talked to two different people there and both were equally nice.

Now that I have my socks, they feel so nice on, GREAT FIT, kind of thinner, but not too thin. They are wearing well after almost two years. I have like 5 pairs. I bought them to wear with my RedWing Shoes that I use to garden with, but they are a little too short and the leather tops of the boots touch my skin, so I usually just wear them out walking or for sleep. No bunching here. Like I said, nice! There was a little variation in the heal color of one. I save that pair because I LOVE the particular color of purple they are so much.

There isn't a change of tightness at the forefoot where the different banding is, if you are wondering. I LIKE THAT. The socks have the size letter inside the top band, and I think that is nice for reordering.

I took a star off because of the shrinkage thing.
Would most definitely buy again! Next time they would rate a 5 star because I'd get the right size!

Love these! They're warm but not bulky, not thin either, just right to wear with shoes without feeling too tight. The colors are vibrant, royal blue and yellow stripes, and the length is just above my ankles. I have these socks in three different color combos, and I if they had more colors, I'd get them too! Don't know yet if they are truly Darn Tough, but I'm expecting them to last a while based on other reviews.

I love Darn tough socks. I like having some without cushion and some with insulating cushion. I dry on low and they do not shrink. I think they out perform Smart wool socks, which I believe have lost some of their quality over the years and do shrink. Darn Tough are true to size (medium is generous and doesn't shrink). Is a Merino wool mix and it's Vermont-owned and produced, so one more great opportunity to support quality products made in the USA.

i am very happy with these socks--i would prefer a higher wool to nylon ratio (more wool) but i suppose the extra nylon is what makes them hold up so well. looking forward to seeing how long they last--the company has a lifetime no questions asked return policy if you wear thru them

When my Darn Tough socks came in the mail, I was very excited because of all the great reviews. I bought them for a backpacking trip across Europe for all the reason people love them: merino wool, moisture wicking, odor resistant, easy to wash without a machine.

As soon as I opened the package, I was disappointed. The socks had several small snags along the creases. They also weren't soft at all, which isn't really necessary for me, but the creases are structural damage. After wearing for a bit, they lose shape, sag, and slide down, which again is more annoying than a functional defect. I thought, "Better than nothing or the cheap cotton socks I have," so I brought them along. I'm still on my trip, but part of me wants to ship them home so I don't have to deal with them. I really wanted to like these, but they are not worth the price for such an annoyance.

Picked up a few pairs of these for my wife. Comfy, warm, and a cute design. We've had them for almost a year now and no signs of wear. Plus feel good vibes for supporting my home state's economy. What's not to love?
