New favorite socks

These are my new favorite socks. Expensive, but they have a lifetime warranty if anything happens to them. I just have to make sure I don't lose them. The boot cushion really helps when you work long days, and the merino wool which is anti-microbial gives me a solid 2 days without needing to wash them. I recommend these Darn Tough socks even if you plan to use them with sneakers, as the cushion isn't annoying or too much at all. They keep my feet warm when I'm unloading a truck in the winter, and they also keep my feet cool throughout the day when I'm on the retail floor. Very happy with them.

Really nice warm socks.

Really nice warm socks. I have several pairs of Darn Tough socks in several different styles and I love them all. I have size 14 feet and I have trouble finding socks to fit. Darn Tough is one of the few brands that offer size XL and XXL socks. The XXL socks are too big even for my size 14 feet and I had to return them for a XL. Now my feet are happy again. You just can't beat GoBros service, selection, or prices.

Versatile Socks - Amazing everyday work socks & More

I've had a pair of these DarnTough socks through GoBros for two years, ordered another pair. Amazing, as I imagine most other reviews will say (and no decline in quality). I've recently tried to transition from synthetic to wool, and chose the right garment to start - if you work on your feet, try DarnTough socks- and many folks will - and most DarnToughs probably will work excellently. I recommend DarnTough hikers if you're doing any forestry work or similar, but the John Henrys bridge the gap between hard working socks (which they excel at) and casual socks (which they also excel at). So basically, these are some of the most versatile socks you'll ever find. EDIT: Also - I've worn these for up to 4 days at a time, over 10 miles a day, and have nary a scent to wiff offa them - the anti-microbial properties of wool are nothing to snuff at!

Great Socks!

My husband loves these socks! They are comfortable, and wear extremely well! He even likes to wear them in the summer, he says they breathe, and don't get too hot.

Darn Tough are always amazing!

Darn Tough socks are amazing every time! The cushion is very nice, they keep your feet dry and and keep away foot odor we’ve had issues with when wearing cotton or other materials.
