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.

    • Moderate cushioning underfoot provides padding underfoot
    • True Seamless construction reduces risk of blisters

    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.

      Awesome Socks

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

      Just returned from a wet hike thru the Yorkshire Dales and carried noting but Darn Tough socks. Couldn't have asked for better socks. Kept my feet warm, dry and blister free. I would not hesitate to order Darn Tough socks again!

      Awesome Socks

      I was a big smart wool fan, but these Darn Tough socks just rock! My left foot is size 10 and my right is size 9.5, I wear both medium and large pairs of these socks, both sizes fit great. Got like 6 pairs so far, every time I order anything, I'll tack on another pair of these sock in a different color or style. AND beside the lifetime warranty, I wash them with everything else and hang them up to dry. Simple enough.

      They really are darn tough!

      I just bought a couple pairs of these bad boys and I have quickly fallen in love! I've gone through many a hiking sock but no sock has ever fit, felt, or looked so right! The fabric is incredibly comfortable and the socks never ride down on the ankles. Im excited to see where they take me in the future!

      Best socks ever!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The level of durability and comfort these socks provide is unparalleled. With all the miles I've hiked these socks are showing minimal wear and are still as comfortable as when I first bought them. The padding underfoot makes it feel like you're walking on clouds all day long! They hug your foot perfectly and don't move around while you're hiking, which helps prevent hot spots and blisters from forming. Couple these features with their lifetime warranty and I am one satisfied hiker. Not only are my feet forever happy, but I'll never have to buy socks again!

      I’ve definitely never had socks hold up to the wear of hiking and everyday use as well as these do. I have several varieties of Darn Tough socks and can’t say enough good things about them.

      Darn Tough!

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

      I love these socks! I won't wear any other hiking socks no matter how cool or warm it is. They seem to hold in the heat when it's colder out and keep my feet nice and cool in the summer. They have the padding where is matters most! These run sport on to the size chart. I would recommend these to anyone!

      Comfort is Key

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

      Cannot make a single complain about Darn Tough socks. They are probably some of the most comfortable socks I've ever worn. Whether I'm wearing them casually or wearing them hiking, I've never had an inkling of discomfort while they wrap around my feets.

      I've worn them on long backpacking trips and have feared that I would get blisters from the shoes, but because Darn Tough makes some of the best quality socks out there, my worries were soon washed away.

      I'll be wearin Darn Tough for a lifetime!.

      Perfect Hiking Sock

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

      Darn Tough makes such great socks, and these Merino wool hiking socks by them reflect just that. They are so comfortable to hike in, and are the perfect thickness. The cushioned bottom with the thin top offers maximum comfort while still keeping your foot cool. I have these sock in multiple colors simply because of how great it is for hiking, camping, and backpacking. It's honesty great for just about any activity, and I find myself wearing them just for daily use a lot of the time as well. Also they run very true to size. Such great socks and I would highly recommend getting yourself a pair or two, you won't be disappointed!

      Tough Enough for fire season

      I got these for my boyfriend who uses them for wildland fire. Fire season is rough on wools and he typically needs to buy new socks mid season. These ones are much higher quality than the REI brand wools he's had in the past, and they seem very well structured. There is alternating cushioning and elastic to ensure breathability and movement. He's pretty excited about them. We will update post-fire season.

      Size foot 10.5, Size ordered Large- True to size fit, extremely comfortable. Slightly more padded than I thought they would be, because it is my first padded sock purchase, but wow- how have I been hiking without these? Perfect crew length to sit above a taller boot, and did not experience any blisters/pain when I typically get pressure/irritation below my big toe when hiking long distance. Did not think that these would be the full solution, but it seems that they are! Used in cold snow climates and wet rain, they kept me warm (around 30-40F in snow) in a leather boot, and were breathable where I had no sweat- no significant moisture. Crossed a river in a trail runner, so my shoes were soaked, the socks got wet, but hanging them up they dried quickly. Planning on buying more pairs for longer trips.

      Tough, comfortable, not too tall

      Great socks for hiking or active time on your feet. I have a few pairs now and will probably get more. Great!

      Best socks ever!

      and I'm someone who is a sock lover in general.

      I don't think I'll buy any other socks for hiking (or life in general, honestly) because these ones do it all so perfectly! As to be expected with wool, they insulate well, breathe, and manage moisture from sweaty feet and stream crossings. But beyond that, my feet feel so lovingly supported even after over a year of regular use. They just keep on keepin on! :)

      Solid Socks

      Darn Tough, as usual, did a great job with these socks. They were the sole socks I used on a recent 26 mile hike and they were comfortable, warm, breathable, and quick drying. Recommended.

      Warm and Strong

      These socks feel high quality and are warm and fit really well. Love the lifetime guarantee. I gave these ones as a gift, but I own several pairs of darn tough socks myself, and they are all holding up marvelously after years of use.

      Unanswered Question

      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 :)
