The Standard Mid-Calf Light Sock

A sock is a sock is a sock is a sock...or so you thought until you slipped on the Darn Toughs Standard Issue Mid-Calf Light Sock and felt the comfy difference as you walk through a foreign city in your business-trip getup.

  • Lightweight jersey fabric with shrink-treated merino wool allows ample breathability, temperature regulation, and quick-drying performance that resists odor for long walks or days at work
  • Sleek, solid design works well as a casual or a dress sock
  • Seamless toe ensures comfortable steps all day
  • Spandex provides the flex and arch-hugging structure to match your foot's natural shape and to prevent movement and blistering
  • Ribbed leg secures the sock as you trek for hours around an airport or business conference
  • Mid-calf height suits dress shoes or boots
  • Item #DRN2592

A little thin

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

Got these for my boyfriend to wear as work socks. Darn tough is a great brand to go with because they honestly last forever and I know they won't get holes. Unfortunately I ended up returning these because he just wanted a slightly thicker sock. These would be really good for summer though or warmer temps. He also didn't really like the band around the top of the sock. It fits a bit tight there.

Mid Calf?

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

Good comfortable socks, wore them on a fall day that started warm and got cold at night, never got too hot or cold. I would say they are longer than mid-calf though, they go almost up to my knees. Could be because I'm 5' 8".

Good, but tight

Familiarity:

Fit:
True to size

I like these socks, they are comfortable for my use at work, but they tend to slip down since my calves are a a bit large for them. That's not a deal-breaker for me, but something to be aware of when ordering. I'm hoping these socks live up to their reputation for lasting.

Very long

Like some other reviewers said, they're not really a crew and are too skinny for bigger calfs.

I got a bunch of these socks for my husband, who wears them as his regular daily socks... which he may never have to replace thanks to the lifetime warantee! He says they are comfortable and durable feeling. I have a few Darn Tough socks myself as well, and they are as good as new after a year of wear.

My first complaint is about the title of this item. It is not a crew-height sock; it is mid-calf. Darn Tough does not make a Standard Issue cushion-less crew-height sock. The last line of the description here says that the socks are mid-calf. I wouldn't have ordered these if this had been reflected in the title. The other reason for marking these down another star is that the leg is narrow. As my husband, who does have wide calves, found out from a previous experimental purchase, the socks just about strangled his legs over a day's wearing, a feature he'd actually anticipated, but not to this painful extent. If you don't have thick calves and you want the mid-calf height, these will probably be wonderful. The foot fits accurately (size L for a 10-1/2 - 11 wide foot) and comfortably. Plus, Darn Tough socks are guaranteed for life.

I gave a grip of these to my younger (better looking) brother as a gift for the holidays. And because I love him and he lives in the very chilly and unforgiving Midwest. Anyway. He's been wearing these for all of his classy-shoe-needs since. He likes the fit and elasticity of the socks, which he says retain their shape well between taking on and off and on again (from choir to the climbing gym and back again, his usual route). He's been very happy with the selection so far.

Like all Darn Tough socks these are built to last. My only wish is that they were a bit more colorful.

Love these socks, love this company. I own many pairs of Darn Tough and love them all. The quality and the craftsmanship of these Vermont made products is unbeatable. When backed by their lifetime warranty, I don't ever feel the need to buy any other type of socks again. Darn Tough for life

Gave these out to my brother and he's worn them every time we've hung out since. They're super warm, like what you'd expect from Darn Tough merino. They are long as most comments say.

As another reviewer stated, these are not a true crew length, they come up past mid calf. As always, Darn Tough socks are very well made of fantastic material, and are very comfortable. Good socks if you like Merino wool (who doesn't?), but these are very long.

I got these for my husband to wear at our wedding and he loved them! The wedding was up on a mountain so the climate changed throughout the day but his feet were a comfortable temperature the whole time!

Confusing labelling

You should not label this product 'Crew' when it is half-calf. Even the search filter showed it as crew length. I had to make a return on my purchase. Darn Tough socks are great. No complains there

I'm a truck driver who has switched from Under Armour synthetics to wool. Synthetics have been unbelievably durable, but stink after only a few hours. Switch to wool socks and underwear seems to be keeping me odor free at the three- to four-day mark. Long term durability yet to be seen, but otherwise a great product. They seem a bit tight, but this was the biggest size I could get (I'm a 13 1/2 shoe) and they are acceptable.
