Love the size!

I wear a size 16 wide. Finding socks
Big enough that they aren’t going to be stretched to the breaking point is not easy—but these more than fill the bill. If anything, they are a bit longer than I need. I walked 500 miles across Spain in two pairs of Darn Tough hiker 1/4 cushion socks and was impressed with their durability, oder fighting properties, and quick drying. I got these to ride from Oregon to Kansas. I wanted the same things, but thinner socks for the bike shoes. So far they have been great on the training rides. Hopefully they will hand wash as well as their cousins did on the 30-day hike.

Nice feeling socks, but

Nice feeling and attractive socks, but XL are a bit tight on my size 13D feet. They are plenty long, but still tight. I will wear them in dress shoes when going to a short timed event, like church, 2-4 hours.

Darn tough, darn comfortable

Purchased based on previous experience with Darn Tough socks. They're great.


Good, warm socks for running in cool/wet weather.

More awesome socks

I hike 20+ times a month typically regardless of conditions. I hike through creeks often with darn toughs combined with Altra trail running shoes. My shoes drain well and the socks are bullet proof. Socks are expensive but awesome. I have many pairs and just put a hole in one after 5 years in the rotation. Hardly wear any other socks but dress socks...
