Darn Tough Hiker 1/4 Cushion Sock - Women's


Hiker 1/4 Cushion Sock

Between its outstanding lifetime warranty and luxurious merino wool fibers, the Darn Tough Women's Hiker 1/4 Sock Cushion Sock excels everywhere from casual walks through the forest to backpacking trips in the mountains. As its name suggests, the Hiker 1/4 Cushion Sock is designed for the dedicated hiker and sits low to prevent overheating on the trail. Merino wool fibers actively wick moisture to keep feet from being overly hot and sweaty, as well as naturally preventing the build-up of odor-causing microbes. Additionally, the sock's fine gauge knitting increases the durability and the True Seamless design makes it unbelievably smooth on your feet.

So sad :( too small

I've used it several times
Runs small
Size Bought
5` 6"
120 lbs

I bought 3 pairs women's medium in both the micro crew and 1/4 height to wear with low hikers. While the micro crew fits fine, sadly the 1/4 height is really small with the ankle part down around my Achilles tendon. I normally wear EU 39-41 shoes. Otherwise a nice sock with smooth flat toe seams.

Can't beat Darn Tough

I've used it several times
True to size

Best socks on the market. Love, and still have, every pair I've ever bought. I like these for the length.

Great socks

Bought these socks as a gift for my mom. Darn Tough socks are the best, and mom deserves the best!

Merino wool done better

I've used it several times

I got these for my Mom, here's what she has to say: I've always loved merino wool socks for the comfort factor but for whatever reason these last much longer and are only slightly less soft. I'm totally sold on Darn Tough over any other sock!

SO Comfy

I've used it several times

I bought these socks for some spring hiking, because I love Darn Tough's warranty policy and company ethics. I also wanted a low top sock, but something that would not be an ankle sock. This sock truly fits the bill! It's so comfy I never want to take them off and I feel great about the brand I'm supporting. 5 STAR HIKING SOCKS! I found their sizing chart to be accurate for my foot.

Called cushion sock for a reason!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are so comfy! Extremely cushiony without being bulky. They have padding in all the right places (esp. Achilles and bunion area). Big fan of that I'm a 7.5-8 size shoe and medium work great! Can't wait to wear these throughout the summer on my backpacking trips!

So comfy!

I've put it through the wringer

Darn tough makes the best socks! I usually like something longer for hiking, but these are so perfect for wearing with winter/fall boots. I know my feet will be warm when I wear these socks! They last forever!

Love darn tough

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought my first pair of darn tough socks this year for skiing, and loved them! I couldn't pass up a chance to get my mom some hiking socks. I'm sure she will love them.


I have Merrell Moab Mid hikers. Will these socks come up high enough to keep my shoes from making contact with skin?
