A new classic, like Uncle Bucks

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.

Darn Tough ABC Boot Cushion Men’s Socks DT 1964

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.

Awesome socks; very comfortable & supportive for my abused old nurse feet!

One of the best socks ever made

Love these socks: warm and dense yet mid weight & comfy. Nicely padded underfoot. Rest of sock is not thick, just dense. Must be super-fine yarns and super-fine knitting machines. Wear with Russell and RedWing Hiking all-leather 6" boots and no bunching problems. Sock engineering is superb; one of the best socks ever made. Sock is similar to their other great sock: the Uncle Buck. Perfect for hiking and long walks.

Very attractive, warm, and comfortable.
