    QUALITY!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love these socks! Enough padding to provide additional comfort compared to any other socks, but not too bulky to where they wont fit into your shoes/boots. The padding is in the areas you need it, instead of throughout the entire sock. I love the fit, nice and snug. They look great, I love the colors they offer. I wear them often and they seem to hold up well so far compared to others. They are the perfect thickness to keep your feet warm without all the bulk. If I could afford to have enough pairs to wear everyday, it would be a no brainer. I plan to buy a few pairs here and there until eventually I have enough to wear daily. They are that good.

    Great Socks

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

    I gave these to my grandpa for Christmas and he says he loves them. Also says the lifetime warranty is impressive but doesn't mean as much to a 93 year old man.

    So legit

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

    Darn tough makes the best socks for outdoor recreation. I gave these as a gift to both my brother-in-law and father-in-law. Both are extreme outdoorsman and work outside often. They both reported that they love these socks and are amazed at how dry and warm their feet stay. Overall, great gift idea - for yourself or anyone!

    Nice sock

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are good every-day sock. Good for travel, they look nice, long flights when you want to take your shoes off on the plane, but not empty the plane because of your stinky feet. I had very high expectations from them and they barely met them. Possibly I had ridiculous expectations, so I still give them 5 stars! I’ll buy more, don’t think any sock could exceed them by much.

    favorite socks by far

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I didn't think it would be possible for me to be so enthusiastic about socks. By far the best I've owned. Comfortable, durable, and great at temperature regulation.

    I wore these on a recent backpacking trip and my feet felt great the whole time and I got no blisters, which I've been very prone to with any other sock in the past.

    The Ultimate Backpacking and Hiking Sock

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

    If you are looking for a backpacking/hiking sock, look no further, these are just perfect. They have the perfect amount of cushion to handle a backpackiing boot and rocky terrain, but aren't so heavy that your feet get sweaty. I have bought both the mens and womens version of these socks for years and have never gotten a hole in the socks or a blister on my foot. These are always my go-to recommendation because they perform so well. I highly recommend them.

    warm and comfy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These socks are incredibly comfortable. They are thick and padded which was awesome for hiking all day and for wearing on an overnight bivy. They weren’t too warm either when the temps got warm the following day.

    Perfect sock!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I went ahead and bought two more pairs after i got these. I wear boots everyday and the super thin socks don't last long and the thick socks create a micro-climate. These socks are the perfect in between and they work for all the seasons.

    Excellent boot socks!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As usual the construction and materials of these socks is top notch. There aren't many pairs of socks out there that can make a bad pair of shoes feel great or hold up to a lot of abuse the way these can. Definitely worth every penny!

    Really Darn Tough

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Words cant express how much I love these socks. I originally picked up a pair several months ago, and since then they have been keeping my feet snug backpacking, climbing, and walking around campus. They are definitely made with hiking in mind, but they also make phenomenal day to day socks if you dont mind wearing the same pair of socks a few days in a row.

    Darn Tough = darn awesome

      always looking for new brands of socks to try and stumbled upon these in the last year--great find, as they are awesome! They are comfortable, not too heavy, and are holding up well so far. Darn Tough = Darn Awesome

      You'll thank yourself on the trail

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      They're thicker wool socks that can handle the wringer with ease.

      - Mountain treks, check.
      -Sopping wet trails, definitely.
      -Freezing Minnesota temperatures, on the daily.

      I don't travel without these socks. I rarely venture outdoors without these socks. They're kind of life-changing in that sense. (Maybe that's overdoing it.)

      But, honestly, the wool make up keeps these socks fresh for long treks, multi-day trips, and for varying temperate ranges. I've worn the same pair in the summer and I've worn them in the winter -- excellent results.

      Can't Get Enough

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      You can't go wrong with Darn Tough. I have about 10 pairs of these socks--several of which I've had for over 3 years and show no signs of wear, even after many miles of hiking in them. These are the sock I recommend to all my friends.

      Real Nice

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I got these more as an everyday sock, and they are great! They are pretty minimal padding, so not like it feels weird with tennis shoes on or anything. But it is still enough to make them just that much more comfortable. They really are doing a great job of hiding odor as well. I've worn these a couple days in a row, and you'd really have a hard time telling. There is a lot of hype around these socks and it is all for good reason!

      Nice Socks!

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

      I purchased these and another pair of Darn Tough socks as a gift for my step dad as he introduced me to the brand last year and he continues to love them. Soft and comfy, while also incredibly durable. Perhaps not the most exciting gift, but certainly one he appreciated!

      Unanswered Question

      Is the sock 100% merino wool? If not, what is the percent breakdown of what makes these socks?

      I wear 9-9.5 (UK)shoes.Will medium be...

      I wear 9-9.5 (UK)shoes.Will medium be better or should i stick with large?I am think about 4-5 months in,they would start to loosen a bit,or thats not the case?Some Smartwool hikers i have have became a little too loose for my liking (large size).I dont mind tight after all i am kinda skinny(150 lbs).

      Best Answer

      Hey Quake_gl

      If you are ok with super tight socks then the Mediums would be a good choice however the size larges should do the trick. The compression band in both the mid and heel of the sock should help keep it's shape and prevent them from stretching out. I have a pair of these and they always become tight again after washing and I've had them for about 6 months now. I hope that this helps answer you questions and please let us know if you have any more.

      Thanks
