Giving you the best of both worlds, the Darn Tough Men's Vertex 1/4 Ultralight Cushion Sock is an extremely stripped-down running sock that still delivers exceptional cushioning along the bottom for a plush ride, mile after mile. Built with True Seamless construction, this sock eliminates hotspots and blisters when you're going for a new personal best. The merino wool blend fabric allows offers fast-drying, breathable performance that keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while its naturally anti-microbial properties repel bacteria and fight odor for multiple days in a row of pushing it to the limit.

Great Socks

    These are simple running socks with the high quality craft you expect from Darn Tough. I like these because they provide some cushion, but not too much. Sizing runs a little on the large side, in my opinion.

    Wore through in a single run

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

    Really like my other DT socks but these wore through at the base of my toes in a single 8-mile trail run in shoes that haven’t eaten any other socks along the way. Backcountry was good about the return though, thanks!

    I got a pair of these for free from a trail race last year, and I loved them enough to buy two more pairs. They're super comfy, don't stink, and the 1/4 length is great for cycling and trail running.
