    YESSS

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    This sock is durable and comfortable. I've worn it when it's cold and when it's hot.... for days at a time.

    I am a true size 9 and it fits like a glove (or a sock), but I would recommend the size large if you have a 9.5 size shoe.

    Truly Great Socks

    I have both these and the Darn Tough Heady Stripe Micro Crew Light Cushion Socks and they are both awesome. They are very similar fit-wise, but the colors in this model have a little less going on . These are a great medium weight merino sock. They are perfect for hiking, or just general winter wear. I wear these nearly every day and have hardly seen any wear whatsoever. Darn Tough makes the most durable wool socks on the market, hands down.

    I am a men's size 9 and the Mediums fit perfectly.

    When they say Darn Tough, they mean it

    I am constantly amazed by these socks. They're comfortable, cool when it's warm, warm when it's cool, and pretty much indestructible. They also manage moisture very well, and I have never had a blister pop up while wearing them, even on long wet slogs. Do yourself (and your feet) a favor and pick up a pair (or six.)

    Super comfortable socks

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L for size 12 shoe
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    The blend of Merino wool and nylon make these socks soft, stretchy and warm. Large fits a size 12 foot perfectly, any bigger than size 12 shoe would likely take an XL though, so the size chart is accurate. No bunching and a seamless construction yields a high level of comfort. I look forward to many miles in these socks!

    Great Light Hiker

    I swear by Darn Tough. I have a few pairs that I have had for way than I could have ever imagined. These are great for everyday or hiking on warmer days. They last forever and are super comfortable. I wear an 11.0 shoe and large fits me perfectly.

    I don't think you can really beat these.

    I didn't buy these because they have unconditional guarantee, or the made in USA. I buy DT socks because they are just right in so many ways. The thickness of these is perfect for my feet/boots. They are warm enough winter use but cool for summer. They don't bunch up, they are nice and snug on my feet without being constricting. The material is perfect balance between comfort and durability.

    I tried so many other brands of socks, DT are the socks I choose.

    As a search and rescue volunteer, we need gear to work (especially our footwear) DT doesn't disappoint. In fact, all the volunteers in my team are slowly switching to DT socks. Despite the price, they are worth every penny.

    I have worn merino wool socks in the past, but the quality of these is better than any I've tried. They are comfortable, they are warm, and they wash very well. I bought them because of the lifetime guarantee they have. I will do my best to wear them out!

    A little on the small side

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Ordered a medium for my husband and should have got large. He wears a size 9 to 9 1/2 in most shoes. On the bright side, they're now taking residence in my dresser. Nice and warm, great with boots.

    great!

    Super comfortable, warm, not hot in the summer. Snug fit helps avoid blisters. Ive put a few pairs through the ringer and they still feel as fresh as the day I got them. My dog even decided he would take a pair outside and chew on them for a while.. socks are fine. recommend to anyone and everyone!

    Best Merino Hiker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    I've been tearing through merino hikers for years, and these Darn Tough's are the first pair of socks that haven't gone into the garbage the day i return from a long backpacking trip.

    Ideal medium-ish cushion on the sole, but light and thin up top to prevent overheating.

    No blisters on my entire trip--i've yet to experience sock quality on this level.

    Gods gift to your feet

    Very few products on Backcountry.com see as much positive feedback as Darn Tough Socks, and that's because they deserve it. Stocked up on some at the start of the summer and it's become the only sock I wear.

    They breath well. You can wear them for days without any thought towards the stink factor. They wick moisture and dry quickly. They have a lifetime warranty... think about that... socks with a lifetime warranty... they're that good. If god make a sock, it would be Darn Tough. Also, as a native Vermonter I appreciate that the socks are made in the 802, support US workers instead of overseas.

    I have a size 12 shoe and the Large is perfect for me. I can't endorse these socks enough! Thank you Darn Tough!

    Great socks

    I have been wearing them every week since receiving them, and they haven't shrunk in the wash like a lot of the socks do.

    Best Socks I've Ever Owned

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    No more cotton socks for me. I bought 4 pairs of these to try them out and they are amazing. Not sure how I could live without these before. :) Will be great for my upcoming backpacking trip through UK, Scotland, and Ireland.

    Excellent everyday socks!

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

    I have a couple pairs of these socks now and wear them everyday the past couple months. I think the material/blend they use for these particular socks makes them super comfortable and have held up well to numerous washing.

    Lives up to the hype!

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

    Just ordered 4 pairs of these for upcoming backpacking trip to UK. Have tested them out quite a bit and they are super comfortable, don't smell (even after 3 days of continuous use), and are comfortable with a little compression on the foot and no slipping/bunching at the top. These are the best socks I've ever put on and I will be buying additional pairs and tossing out all of my cotton socks!

    socktacular

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

    Just ordered my first pair of these and used them on a quick 5 mile hike here in Virginia. My feet usually sweat something turrible and after the hike (for the first time), my feet were dry and have no rubbed areas. I'll definitely be ordering more.

    Lifetime warranty unnecessary

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

    Of course lifetime warranty is a great way to guarantee the product. but these socks are so bullet proof I doubt you'll need it. I had to up my Darn Tough collection for my highline trip, because no other sock is as good to my feet as these are. 90 miles in 5 days with no blisters or wear on the socks, Id say these are pretty Darn Tough.

    Lifetime warranty unnecessary

    versatile and cool looking

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

    i've worn these two or three times and they seem like a good value.



    real mid-weight; i could wear these to run trails in the summer or backcountry ski in the spring. there are no awkward seams or bunches of material. it fits smooth everywhere. they're not quite up to the level of the SW PhDs, but they also cost less.



    they're good enough that i think i might buy another pair.

    Oh they are MUCH better than SW PhDs.... The heels wear out in the SW phDs. I have purchased a dozen of those for my husband whose feet are very sensitive. I now have purchased a dozen of the Darn Tough and no more heel wearing out before the rest of the sock is done. Plus the heel is better padded. No comparison in the long run. I'm a Darn tough customer for life.

    A sock fit for the apocalypse.

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

    If I had to choose one sock to wear for the rest of my existence, this would be it. Because this is the only sock that will last that long. The fit is perfect, they never slip down even when running. They keep your feet at the perfect temperature and they don't get funky after multiple days of hiking in a row. Bottom line these socks are an investment in your future.
