    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!

    Darn Tough makes some fine socks, and these are no exception. Quality feel, quality build, long lasting socks!

    Excellent Lightweight Socks

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I got two pairs of these for everyday use. They breath well and seem to be of the same quality as other Darn Tough socks.

    11.5 shoe, L 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.
