I feel American as heck in theses bad boys. These socks give you bald eagles wings and why shouldn’t they, they are made in the USA baby. Strap these socks on and enjoy the sweet smell of freedom as you soar above the clouds dropping red, white, and blue turds on your enemies below. But for real darn tough socks are the best and you can’t go wrong with these.
By far the best socks I've ever owned. I have about 8 pairs which is a little expensive, but obviously I'm fine with the price because I've purchased 8 pairs. They are simply the best so I don't look at other brands I only ever buy Darn Tough. I think they also have a lifetime guarantee which is amazing but after 2 years of having my socks I have yet to need a warranty claim. I usually where these socks while hiking or wearing work boots so I'm generally pretty tough on socks and these hold up great and feel amazing. It's funny because you wouldn't think socks are that big of a deal until you buy good socks and then totally understand why they are worth it.
Good socks, not as cushy or thick as I was expecting for the cushiest option the company offers. I have other socks much thicker, but these are nice anyway, comfortable. Haven't had a chance to try them in winter yet. I sometimes wear two wool socks around here so... I'm not sure these will do the trick by themselves anyway, though they're supposedly the warmest Darn Tough offers. The Pacific NW wet cold is a beast. Other wool socks I have don't shrink in the dryer, but these ones do, I have to be careful to pick them out, one pair shrunk significantly the first time I dried them. I wore them and they stretched back out alright, but that doesn't help with longevity. I almost wished I would have gotten one size up so I could put them in the dryer but oh well. Thank you for socks.
Thirty bucks for a pair of socks, have you lost your mind? Well maybe I have, but after the end of a 15 hour work day in the hot humid 90 degree heat of the south and on my feet for the 15 hours, I can take my work boots off and my feet will be dry dry dry. I wont wear any other sock now and they're worth every penny. The only down side to these socks is, you will throw away every other pair of work socks you own.
Very soft,warm enough and perfect for cold days.I wish they had other colors.
I love these socks. Comfortable and soft. I purchased one pair about eight years ago and they have not worn out. So, I bought five more pairs.
I have been an outdoorsman for the nearly half century of my life. My first camping trip was a week+ long when I was 3 weeks old. I served in the military. Post-military I served our country for years on a tactical unit where carrying loads of equipment and heavy packs is the norm. I also (very unfortunately) have extremely blister prone feet that have led to intense suffering while going through various high-stress selection courses and operations throughout my adult life. This has led me to become a sock connoisseur. Darn Tough Socks are the best I've ever tried, and I've tried dozens of different sock types from multiple high quality brands. Perfectly cushioned, while not being so bulky as to give you a feeling of instability. And they don't wear out like other socks when carrying 100+ pound packs off trail in rugged terrain. They last much better than all the competitor socks I've tried. I just utilized the newly purchased from GoBros Hiker Boot Full Cushion Men's Socks on an elk hunt in the Rocky Mountains. I'm old and broken now and don't get to train like years gone by so my feet are a major concern since I'm not constantly carrying heavy weight over rugged terrain any more. The Darn Tough Socks did their job, as I knew they would. Warm, but not too warm. And zero problems with my blister-prone feet. This is not even mentioning that GoBros had the socks at an excellent price. And further, when there was a small issue with my order, when I called in to ask about how to return things they told me to not worry about it since it had been their mistake and to just keep what had been erroneously sent. Top tier sock. Top tier company. Top tier customer service.
Tried the Balega Foot Zen socks and fell in love. I have BAD feet, with hammertoes and some neuropathy, and these socks are really comfortable— even for me. Worth the money. Also, the they have XL size, which is helpful for size 14 feet.
I take some harsh medicines and if I don't care of my feet can lead to having sores on them, and I had them and didn’t want them again. I was told to keep my feet dry and wear cushioned sock. I found out wool was still the best product for this. I had ordered some other brands from different places, and then I found GOBROS great prices and free shipping! I talked with customer service there, always very friendly, and I ordered my first pair, 3 pair to tell the truth, in Oct 2017. As soon as I put them on it was like wow these are different, soft, cushioned, nice fit, I wear XL, seamless, and just felt great. Over the past few years, I have ordered more of them and own several pair and are my daily socks, and have had not problems with them. In my opinion you can’t go wrong with these socks.
The wool used in these DT socks are long wool fibers=better. I always notice they are longer when I turn them inside out to launder & compare to other merino wool socks I have. I love my Darn Tough 1/4 hikers. They are medium weight along the bottom & light weight on the top which is great for breathability in the heat, but yet it’s still fairly warm in the cold. Don’t put them in the dryer otherwise they will pill, like all DT wool socks. Air dry them & they won’t pill. I want to see DT make a line of socks exactly like this but full medium weight cushioning through out whole sock @ 75% merino wool in 1/4, 3/4, crew & better colors like solid black, navy, orange & black.
Love these socks for women, so urging my husband to wear them too. Sizing for his ran small. So the medium (which is sock size he usually would wear) that I first bought are in the drawer unfortunately. Then purchased large and they fit good. His shoe size is 8.5-9 so medium should have fit but were tight.
I have bought Balega socks for years and loved them. Same kind same size. The recent purchase got 4 Stars vs 5 stars as they just don’t fit in the usual way. Fit is tighter almost like the sock is smaller. Hope shrinkage isn’t a problem as I ordered 8 pairs. Appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback.
Hard to find lightweight merino sock for summer to wear with my short work boots. Super comfortable soft and non binding top of the cuff i Fantastic socks. I always freak out when one of them hides from me in the dryer.
I have a few pair of Darn Tough socks so when I saw these tactical ones on sale, I had to give them a try. I believe they are the best socks I have ever owned! I've been working some long days fixing up my Mother's house for sale. It's nice not having to think about your feet when you need to keep going.
Wildland fire fighter love em gobro has the best deals
Socks are fine, typical DT quality, but the color block goes much farther up the sock than I hoped. So instead of having a clean, solid white look, there's an unsightly grey patch in the back of the sock.
One would think it would be easy to find solid white OTC socks but for some reason it isn't. Who is this color block for?? Why would anyone want this???
Please make a solid white version and I will order like 5!
ABC socks, like Uncle Bucks, are superb engineering. Support where you need it, wonderful cushioning (not too thin nor thick), leg padded except 1 1/2" at very top; a mid weight sock for most seasons. Warm to +10, Cool in to the 80's. I bought 8 other styles of DT's until I found these this year. First I found Uncle Bucks, now these ABCs. The design is also very cool. On sale at GoBros with deep discount right now, so great value as well, and with excellent service from GoBros. Hiking 8 miles/day in my Russell Mocassin 'Hikers', these and my Wigwam 'Ascends' are my go to socks. Highly recommend.
I purchased these socks for myself because I loved the design. I have a size 7.5 foot and the L fit well. The colors are muted compared to the neon green in the photo. They have less cushioning than the regular Darn Tough hiking socks, closer to their light cushion. In the past, I requested that this design be made for adults...I second that request!
These are great mittens. I have had FR socks, so I trust their quality and durability. I measured my hand (not that I needed to, my hands are large) and they are within the measurements listed for the Lg. size, but they are just a little snug to put on. They fit inside my leather mittens nicely. For my own tastes, I would have liked a little more cuff length, but that is more preference than critique.
I owned several varying styles of DT socks previous to these over the past few years. These are the absolute best socks I own. I’m glad that I bought 5 pair. I wear them with a pair of Solomon Quest 4D 3GTX boots and they never feel too tight or uncomfortable. My feet don’t get cold anymore while wearing Merino wool socks. They are cushioned enough that my feet don’t hurt more than they should after walking and running around at work all day in my Salomon boots. In my opinion, these are the best socks you can buy if you’re looking for a sock for winter-fall . I can’t comment on how they’d be in the warmer seasons but I imagine they would be okay as long as your footwear has adequate ventilation.
I love these socks! I only buy these and the Mountaineering OTC socks. I won't buy anything else anymore. I own a few pair of Cabela's OTC and although they are comfortable they aren't as good as these. The Darn Tough Tactical and Mountaineering OTC socks are very comfortable and fit right below the knee where they are supposed to go. They are snug and don't slip down during the day. Highly recommended.
First off these are very well constructed socks but I would like to know where the "extra cushion" is that they are claiming exists. They are not very comfortable walking long distances if you are looking for extra cushioning under the strike areas of your foot. The Darn Tough mountaineering and smart wool hiking and trekking socks provide much more cushioning in my opinion.
For a sock called "40 below", I would have expected a little heavier sock. These are relatively light weight - about the same as any off-the-shelf wool sock. It does have a nice deep pile to it, and is somewhat warm when dry, but it gets cold pretty quick once it absorbs some sweat.
Love the softness and no blisters....but I’m not sure of the quality of your items.
It seems in the last couple of years the quality of the wrightsock brand a d the material of this belega sock isn’t hat it use to be.
Awesome experience, will be back again!! Thank you.
