    Details

    Darn Tough is right.

    Darn Tough gave the Merino Wool Micro Crew Cushion Hiking Sock a dash of spandex and nylon so your trail-tromping paws stay extra comfy while you tick off the miles. The Micro Crew blows away your heavy, itchy wool socks with its built-in elastic arch support and high-density padding in the heel and toes. Darn Tough built these midweight beauties with merino wool that’s naturally resistant to stinky odors and manages moisture to keep your feet blister-free.

    • Socks built for thru-hikers, backpackers, and peak baggers
    • Merino wool blend manages moisture and resists odor
    • Moderate cushioning underfoot provides padding underfoot
    • True Seamless construction reduces risk of blisters
    • Performance Fit reduces bunching and slipping
    • Darn Tough socks are made in Vermont, USA
    • Item #DRN0016

    Perfect Mountain Sock

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love these guys and wear them for everything from backpacking to mountaineering. They fit great, are super comfortable and last forever.

    Perfect Mountain Sock

    Great socks

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I've bought other socks from Darn Tough before, and shared them with my family. One of my brothers asked for these as a gift and he is very pleased with them. Great for working and running.

    Boyfriends Favorite Socks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My boyfriend works as a mountain guide in Jackson in the summer and these are the only socks he will wear and that hold up day after day on the mountain. He loves the comfort, breathability, and coolness of these socks while hiking. He wears a size 9 shoe and the M fit him perfect.

    Great Product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Socks are nice and soft, breathable, and comfortable. I trekked through the snow and my socks got wet. They dried pretty fast once I was finished. I will be wearing these when I climb Mt. Rainier in a couple days

    great socks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    love these socks super comfy but on the down sides after a week long backpacking tip in the desert i had to burn mine the the sake of everyone else. will be buying again

    Darn Tough is the BEST

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Everything about these socks is perfect. They fit great, regulate heat and last longer than they should. I have had pairs last years with weekly use. They are comfortable for casual daily use or on long backpacking trips. Buy them you won't regret it.

    Darn Tough For The Long Haul

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are the 6th pair I’ve purchased & not because they need to be replaced. Darn tough undoubtedly makes the toughest,most comfortable, warmest and consistently fantastic socks on the market. Naturally, my feet are always cold, Ive taken to layering this pair with a slightly lighter weight set and they keep my toes toasty, but dry in 11 degree weather. I’m a big fan of the light arch compression in the stitching, as well as the cushion quality in the foot. Also another great feature, these babies are super, hiker stank,resistant, they’ve got a customer for life.

    Best socks

      These are some of the best socks I’ve ever owned. I use them for work, for recreation, and for every day wear. I last bought a set of 6 pair back in 2008, and am finally starting to wear those out. Darn Tough has their lifetime guarantee as well, so you can send them in for any reason if any issues arise.

      Darn Good!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love these socks! My feet are so much happier on a long hike when I wear these. They wash well with just a rinse and don't stink up like some of the others socks I have. Keeping my feel warm and dry on all the hikes so far! Thinking about getting few more pairs since they have been so good to my feet.

      THE BEST OF THE BEST !

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      When I wear this socks, my feet feel very warm and relaxing ! IT'S SO GOOD !
      I will throw my other socks away ! I will buy this again and again !

      Only Socks Ill wear

        Darn tough socks are just what they sound like. These socks will last forever and if they don't just send em in and get another pair. Awesome fit, super comfy, and many different styles to fit your everyday lifestyle.

        Unanswered Question

        I was under the impression women’s Darn Tough socks 🧦 only came in S-L, yet item #DRN0016 says also available in XL. Now this particular sock looks similar to a style also available in men’s, but when I reach this item via another pair of women’s socks, it clearly says “women’s” at top. When I access it otherwise it says nothing about whether for men or women. Attempting to include a few pics to clarify this. Wouldn’t mind trying an XL in women’s if available BUT either way I need to be 100% sure what I’m ordering as a men’s XL would be way too large. Thank you in advance for clarifying this for me.

        I hope this photo shows “women’s” at the top. I hope the pic also shows size XL...hard to tell as can’t enlarge photo when choosing to tell what I’m sending! Regardless of what photo shows, can you verify Darn Tough socks do come in XL for women’s ever? I’ve been looking at these socks for DAYS and haven’t seen. So if the wrong info inadvertently ended up on your site, I understand...and I am by no means assuming I’m correct...I just want answers for us both!

        We live in Red Deer, AB is there anyone...

        We live in Red Deer, AB is there anyone here that sells these sock - they are the BEST

        I have a narrow foot and find that socks...

        I have a narrow foot and find that socks that are for men and women are too bulky. Does Darn Tough have socks for women?

        Dorothy, I have what I call a crow foot for a man. Size 9 very slim and narrow foot. I bought a size large pair in these socks to try out and see how they woulf fit thinking that they probably would be too large, but I'd rather too large than too small...obviously. The large hug my crow feet very well and I luv these socks so much that I bought the last two pair of celery green (hehe) pairs that they had left. I will definitely be buying up a few more pairs of these, although I'm sad bout the celery green color disct. (I'm a hunter and love the camo aspect of the colors). But to answer your overall question I would not be scared to buy these socks as a woman cuz if the large snugly fit my crow feet then I am sure they will do you well! Did I mention I LUV these socks? BC does have some women's socks listed for Darn Tough, but as I said...even the unisex should be fine!

        There are a few patterned pairs of Darn Tough Women's socks at Backcountry.com, but I know they have a much larger variety of women's socks at their website. I've never worn them of course, but I won a pair of Women's DT socks once and gave them to a friend and she LOVES them. Tells me every time she has them on (which is often).

        I'm a US 11.5 men's, A or B width. I have some Darn Tough socks (micro crew, boot socks, in-town), and they fit exceptionally well, but I don't have trouble with most other socks so your foot might be narrower than mine. Icebreaker's Hike Mid socks seem perhaps a little narrower, so you might investigate a pair of them as well. On the bright side, you'll make a lifetime friend if you try a pair and have to give it away :)
