I hate to give 3 stars for Darn Tough, but these socks are way off on sizing. I have many pairs of Darn Toughs, all women's socks. I bought these unisex socks because I wanted no show black socks. I followed the size chart, women's size 9 is small according to the chart, but these socks were huge. I don't have a small foot, and I was told that I probably wouldn't be happy with the x-small either because these are big socks. I'm disappointed that they didn't fit, and that I had to pay shipping costs to return these socks because of a sizing chart that is incorrect. From now on, I'll stick strictly with women's only Darn Toughs.
That's it. They're perfect wool socks. Fit? Warmth? Durability?Quality? All 10/10 and worth every penny spent (between my partner and I, we have about two dozen pair). We're backpackers that used to live on the Sonoran desert, just moved to the Colorado Rockies, they work well in every condition. Buy the thinner ones for summer, heavier for colder conditions.
I've tried half a dozen other brands of wool socks, and they work well, but these? These are perfect wool socks:)
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.
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.
Thank you for taking on this effort, Darn Tough. I love that you are dedicated to making the best socks and I am so happy that I've discovered you. You have a new life time customer. As advertised - these are the best socks I've ever been privileged to wear.
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.
Wildland fire fighter love em gobro has the best deals
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.
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.
These are now my go-to daily dress sock. Comfortable until the end of the day. My feet sometimes get itchy with wool socks, not with these. And with the Darn Tough guarantee I am looking forward to years of service.
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.
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.
Very soft,warm enough and perfect for cold days.I wish they had other colors.
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.
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.
I placed an order for some socks and when I received the order, one of the ithree identical socks ordered in size medium, was a large. I sent an email that same day and a Katie responded back to me promptly, saying she would send me the correct size and attach a return label. Neither of which has happened.
I do want to add that the other socks ordered were comfortable for my son.
My daughter loves your blister resist socks. Asked for them as she often gets blisters when running. She says they are the only ones she’ll use from here on out. No more blisters for her!
I only wear Darn Tough socks, summer or winter to work and workout ❣️
Go Bros keeps me stocked due to their great sales.
I bought these socks to replace socks I wear with my cycling shoes. I bought 2 pair of these and 2 pair from another seller. The Wrightsock Ultra thin are hands down the best. They are thin, supportive, and stay in place. I have found my new favorite cycling socks.
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.
We love Darn Tough
My daughter gets blisters with other socks when she runs in her spikes, but not in these!
I will replace my Thorlo socks. The elastic goes to soon. These seem to have better elastic.
