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...

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.

I bought these socks for my cyclist boyfriend for X-mas. The feel is good, and the no padding worked well with his cycling shoes. He has a long, narrow foot, and the heel is not in the right place to make the ankle fit comfortably. If the heel is right, the ankle tugs down, and if the ankle fits right the heel is coming out of the shoe. Wish I could recommend, but can't.

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.
