    Feel great, but color was off .

    • Size Bought: Large

    I ordered the orange ones, but they looked more pinkish-red to me. I also ordered the wrong size. I wear a men's size 9-9.5 but ordered L by mistake. They not only went up to my knee but could be folded back down another 2" lol. I'm guessing the M would have fit just right.

    No hassle return.

    Sturdy, warm, no blisters

    I have worn these socks on numerous 6000ers in the Appalachian chain through a variety of conditions, including on one trip where I encountered several miles of melting, knee-deep snow and slush. It was on this trip that I realized my boots needed re-waterproofing, and I also realized that these socks are seriously warm. Despite freezing temperatures and full saturation they kept my feet moderately warm (not gonna lie - they weren't sitting by the fire toasty, but they were relatively warm for the conditions and the appalling lack of protective boot). They also dried easily overnight and were worn again the next day - no small feat considering I could wring the snow melt right back out of them.

    The biggest test came when I took two pairs of darn toughs (and a third pair of another brand) up on a glacier in the cascades for a week. They kept me warm, comfortable, and blister free despite not the greatest of boots nor weather conditions. I did double layer these socks on two particularly cold and wet days - including on the day I summited Mt. Baker.

    Overall - I am very pleased with these socks and despite tons of abuse over the past several months they still somehow look brand new.

    I have owned these socks for a while and they always work for me. There's not that much to say about a sock except that I like them.

    Excellent winter cycling socks

    I like to wear knee high socks with my 3/4 tights in the winter and with full bib tights on 30 degree days. I first tried DeFeet Woolie Boolie knee highs, which are great. But then I came across these. These are warmer and super comfy. I now have two pairs of these knee high socks. I love Darn Tough socks, and my wife and I have several pairs between us. Plus, they stand by their warranty. I just recently sent off a couple pairs of socks that have 7 or 8 years on them. I have received a few replacement pairs over the years, and they stand by their stuff. Better than Smartwool or Thor Lo's for sure. And, these are much better than Smartwool's mountaineering socks (I've had a coupe pairs of those).

    These get my highest recommendations.

    best ever

    there are no better socks on the market. warmed up a pair of frozen boots filled with spindrift in -20F in a couple minutes.

    Great Socks!

    I use these socks for hiking and a few times on really cold days for snowboarding. Darn Tough wasn't lying when they said extra cushion, these socks are thick, very warm, and also don't move around at all while I'm wearing them. My boot size is and 11.5 and the size large fits great.

    AWESOME SOCKS!!!!

    I bought these for my husband and he loves loves them so much. They are sturdy, wool, and keep his toes very warm! We will be buying many more.

    Great socks!

    I purchased these socks for my husband. He really likes them! Snug fit without being constricting. They're long and stay put! Cushion-y and comfortable.

    Perfect socks!

    Very warm, love the 'over the calf' fit-- I am a size 12.5 shoe and I got the large size, and they fit me perfectly (I don't like to layer a liner sock anymore). Worth every penny!

    Not just for mountaineering

    I bought these for a friend of mine works on a farm 7 days a week. Bought these for a friend recently. He ruins most socks within a year, working on a farm, hunting and fishing so he was happy to hear that Darn Toughs have a lifetime guaranty! Although I'm not sure he will have to send them back any time soon! He wears an 11 boot and the Large fits great!

    The quality, style and fit is exceptional. I have worn Darn Tough socks for 3 - 4 years now and they rock! I purchased these over other brands to take to Ecuador in a couple of weeks. They have proven to fit great in my mountain boots.

    The most comfy socks EVER!

    Having tried several other socks from the big names, Darn Tough are by far the most comfortable socks I've ever worn. They are now the only socks I'll own. From no-show running socks, to these super comfy foot warmers, my sock drawer looks like an ad for DT.
