Perhaps the best 1/4 hiking sock made

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Had not tested this for too long so i cant comment on durability,but i am super satisfied so far.

Fit:5/5.Like molded.Very good,they dont slip down.

Comfort:5/5.Very good cushion for the weight,and its distributed nicely along the foot,no areas with less cushion than others.

Warmth:5/5.For summer/spring they are damn warm.Can easily be worn with long pants in autumn.

Wicking sweat/Odor:4/5.Since they are pretty cushioned,they are a bit warm in very hot conditions,but you still wont sweat too much.
Odor is minimal.

Overall 5/5.
They are Darn Tough,what more to say.They can be worn for pretty much all activities and 3-seasons.You wont regret.

They really are Darn Tough

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I wear these for everything to include hiking, running, and working 10 hr shifts at the hospital. They're much tougher and have superior wear as compared to Smartwool. I can wear these all day. I'm ordering more since I'm replacing some previously mentioned brand of socks that are wore out at achilles area and ball of foot.

Decline in QC?

I've written some great review for Darn Tough socks in the past - good tight weave, and they wear great and have been long-lasting. Usually don't have to toss them till the heal or achilles has worn due to LOTS of use. But my last three have been trashed after only a couple of runs. There is a sewn seam near the toe that has come unfrayed in my last three pairs. I keep my toenails filed, so that is not it. And even my old Darn Tough are not having this problem. I can only conclude that a great product and success was followed by carelessness and lack of attention to datail. I hate to trash this product that I have loved for so long. But 0 for 3 in my last three pairs is a trend that can't be ignored. Sorry Darn Tough. Breakup are hard, but I have to move on.

Get this sock

This is probably my favorite sock ever. I really like the cut, it is incredibly tough, I hiking the entire appalachian trail, started with 3 pairs of socks, and these are the only ones that made it the whole way. They are very comfortable and wick moisture really well.
