    Money Well Spent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Simply said, these socks are well worth the investment. They are durable, comfortable, fit well, and do not tend to retain odors or moisture. On top of that, Darn Tough offers a lifetime replacement warranty. So, should these socks take enough of a beating that they do give way, you're only out a pair for a few days until the replacement arrives. The only potential negative I noticed was that after about a few washes there began to be some pilling, which isn't a deal breaker but could be an annoyance to some. Personally, I plan on replacing my sock drawer with Darn Toughs and would suggest others looking for a quality sock at least consider the same.

    Just AWESOME

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

    These are the best socks I have ever put on my feet. I could not explain how these feel. Buy a pair and try for yourself. and you will understand what everyone is saying!

    Never bought any other hiking socks

      I've used this socks for many years, and they are still intact. Amazing how durable these socks are. They perform extremely well, fit great, very happy with this product.

      Great socks

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      Just wore these on a 13-mile hike up Mt. Timpanogos, where the temperature ranged from about 40 in the morning to 80 in the afternoon, and these socks were perfect through it all. They stay in place, don't bunch up at the heel, and keep my feet warm - but not too warm. Definitely recommend!

      Only socks I wear now

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      I was introduced to Darn Tough socks by a friend for running purposes. Decided to give these a try for several camping trips and increased travel to colder/rainier climates. These have held up to everything I've thrown at them: walking through sand dunes with semi-open shoes, hiking for miles and miles in Glacier National Park, traveling through airports with business and tennis shoes, and daily walks through downtown areas. They wick sweat away like champs, keep your feet warm when it's cold without overheating, and breathe well even on hot, Texas days. They're just as soft and comfortable as the day they arrived. Pretty sure they are made of magic.

      This the best socks I have ever owned.

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: M
      • Height: 5'5"
      • Weight: 157lbs

      This it the first socks I have ever owned that has size option. It fits perfectly and snug on my feet. I hiked with it for the first time and had to step in water, once my feet was out of the water I did not feel my feet was wet or cold. Les odor after use. Nice cushion.

      For the long haul

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      After several years of buying all heaps of different brands wool sock options, I wanted to give Darn Toughs a go. First off, I couldn't believe that these socks are guaranteed for life and they challenge you to try and wear them out, is just plain awesome! These have quickly become my go to socks for hiking, fishing, and living and I will continue to save my pennies to buy more pairs!
      Great colors, perfect minimal padding and the peace of mind that you won't blow through your investment, like i have with every other pair of Merino socks that I have bought from other companies.

      Excellent Quarter Cut Socks

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 162lbs

      I use these for day hikes and over night hikes. This is probably my 5th pair. Long lasting socks, I've yet to be 1 of the few unfortunates to experience holes or fabric degrading. Great for hiking shoes, trail running shoes, and even just lounging during the winter. I wear size 8.5-9 shoes in Mens, so the medium fits perfect.

      Love Darn Tough and their lifetime warranty!!
      Bought these for my boyfriend who goes through socks.
      Perfect height on ankle. Soft and comfortable.
      Easy to get on and off.
      These seem that they will last a very long time compared to other socks.

      Socks are always a good gift!

      I've said it before, but these socks are the best I have ever worn, bar none. Comfortable in a variety of temperatures, moisture wicking, and the best part of all, guaranteed for life. Just go and buy them.

      Great hiking sock

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'9"

      These socks are very comfortable and feel like they will last a long time. The padding is great on them, not too thick not too thin. Maybe a little warm for every day use, but they are made for hiking

      • Size Bought: Large

      Great sock, that feels quite plush and already seems to stand up to the test of time. After over a month of once weekly use for hikes, followed by a wash and hang dry, these still feel brand new and soft.

      For reference, I am a size 10.5-11 shoe and purchased a size Large

      • Fit: True to size

      For years I have heard about how good Darn Tough socks are. I finally gave in and decided to buy a pair. The materials are top notch, the cushioning is just right, and they feel like they will go the distance. I look forward to taking these out on the trail once the mountains thaw out.

      Best socks ever

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

      I never thought I would be excited about socks. But you know that awesome feeling of putting on a new sock? They are still thick, full of cushion and super soft? With these socks that feeling never goes away. Every time I wash them and dry them, bam, its like a new pair. I dont know if ill ever be able to wear my other socks again.

      go to socks

      My boyfriend loves these socks. He usually wears out socks pretty damn fast but these Darn Tough have held up. Its the only socks he will put on his feet. He loves them

      Oatmeal Versus the Spiny Plants

      Being from New Mexico, trail running in Oregon is not as easy as I thought. Plants are not all cuddly up here, a few jumped me today as I cut through a field; good thing I'm not a board-short model. Fortunately, the added padding in my darn tough socks kept my feet fresh, so I could remain agile.

      like Pringles say "once you pop you just can't stop" well the same here once you put these things on your hoofs you won't want to stop walking or running or what ever else you do in your socks. :) This is my 4th pair, love every one as much as you can love a sock
