Not what they used to be

The new version of these socks that I received as replacements do not have an orange heel cup and are not nearly as nice as the first batch I bought several years ago. My first ones never beaded up and the orange parts looked new forever. They did loose wool in the arch which is why I warranted them out. Had I known I would have never sent them back to DT. When I complained to DT about the new version they said they were the same but there is no way. They are now average at best and have chewed through the heel cushion on several pairs of shoes and worn through the sock at the heel. The orange has lost a ton of density. The first ones lasted for years and these haven’t made it six months. So sad!!


Made very well and durable.

Game Changer

These are the best socks I've ever owned. The added cushion provides all day comfort. My size falls right on the transition between large and extra-large; I wear a size 13 shoe but a size 12 work boot. I bought the XL figuring it may shrink a little. It did shrink only slightly and fits comfortably snug after washing. I received a pair of Large as a gift and they also fit but they are quite snug. I prefer the XL. If I pull too much on the XL, I can pull the heal of the sock past my heal. I pull it only to where it should be, and it stays comfortably all day without bunching. The L also stays where it should, but the cushion feels stretched a little thinner. Still comfortable though.

I had purchased three or four of these socks last year for my son for Christmas. He had recently shared with me that they are the only socks he now likes to wear. He is in construction so works in all sorts of weather. He also hunts. He has a lot of other "work" and hiking and hunting socks, but much prefers these to any others he has. Therefore, I purchased him another 3 pairs. He was thrilled! Love Darn Tough socks!!
