Best socks ever!
Darn Tough is all I wear now. They are the best socks on the market, no question. They last the longest, the most comfortable and the best value. Don’t bother with any other brand, just buy this brand. I must have 10 pairs and they last and last... I hate that they rarely go on sale but buy them normally full price because they ultimately are such good value in terms of quality.

I bought XXL size, which should fit size 15-17. I am a size 14, and bought these because the size XL are small. I could barely get them on. Verrrrrrrrry impressive, Darn Tough. Back they go.

You should stretch them before you put them on. They do shrink after washing. Stretching makes them easier to get on. I like the tightness because they work well as compression socks.

These socks are awesome. I wear Darn Tough daily, for work and casual and easily have about 20 pairs of socks. My work socks are 10+ years old, and are going strong. My casual socks of equal age have finally started to show their age. While I could use the "lifetime guarantee" and get new ones free of charge, I'd feel a little guilty getting free ones with how much I've worn them.

I purchased these for my Girlfriend and she loves them! She told me that she likes the fit and, comfort and the cushion is just the right level for hiking and backpacking.

Merino wool done better
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!

Big fan of these socks - rival Smartwool
Darn Tough makes quality long lasting socks, and have a great warranty to go with it. They are a great thickness for hiking or casual use, and breath well too. If you are used to Smartwool and try these out they may feel a bit different at first, but once they break in they are extremely comfortable. I'd highly recommend.

Fit Amazingly and Comfortable
These socks feel great. I love the micro crew length. I am a 7.5 shoe and I went with the small and they fit perfectly, not too tight, but they dont move around or bunch up at all even after long days.

Great mountain socks
I already have a few Darn Tough socks and wanted to stock up. These socks are perfect in every way - super supportive, warm, they stay dry, and the colors are super cute. If you are a female, be aware that these are not female specific socks. I accidentally ordered the wrong size initially and had to return for a smaller size! I wear a size 8.5 and originally ordered a medium, when I needed to order a small since these are based off of men's sizes.

Got these as a gift for my dad, they are the only ones he will wear in the outdoors. They keep his fit warm and dry for long days ice-fishing and hunting.

Long Lasting Comfort
This sock is a staple. I have many pairs of them, outside the peak heat summer season I wear them all year long. Great for hiking or just everyday outings. In the past I've had other brand socks wear thin, get holes, and lose elasticity. These socks really are long lasting and hold their fit.

Darn Tough is the best!

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.

Where these socks for everything. Great for anything outdoors and last forever.

I was under the impression womenâs Darn Tough socks ð§¦ 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 menâs, but when I reach this item via another pair of womenâs socks, it clearly says âwomenâsâ 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. Wouldnât mind trying an XL in womenâs if available BUT either way I need to be 100% sure what Iâm ordering as a menâs XL would be way too large. Thank you in advance for clarifying this for me. Stephanie H email@example.com I hope this photo shows âwomenâsâ at the top. I hope the pic also shows size XL...hard to tell as canât enlarge photo when choosing to tell what Iâm sending! Regardless of what photo shows, can you verify Darn Tough socks do come in XL for womenâs ever? Iâve been looking at these socks for DAYS and havenât seen. So if the wrong info inadvertently ended up on your site, I understand...and I am by no means assuming Iâm correct...I just want answers for us both!

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?
April 8, 2009
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! http://www.backcountry.com/store/search.html?mv_session_id=bEYHHRUh&q=darn+tough+socks+women

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 :)
