Sent them socks for warranty coverage and they lost them. Won’t replace!
They are worth every cent. Unfortunately with quality comes a little cost, otherwise these are the only socks I would ever wear. I mean with sandals and shorts in 90 degree weather every day (just kidding, but only because I wear pants and boots all summer long and still rock them)
As a warehouse worker I'm on my feet 10+ hours and I go through socks like butter on hotcakes.
I took these out and broke them in on a 5 mile hike in the spring in the Colorado wilderness, and let me say I am impressed. I will absolutely buy another pair. Temp was about 25 in the morning and 45 in the early afternoon and my feet were so comfortable. The socks did a good job of wicking away sweat and they have cushion in the right places. They are thin on the top and thicker on the toe and heel, but not too thick as to be uncomfortable in a boot. They don't pinch in the middle of the foot either, I hate that maybe because I have a wider foot. I paired these socks with some Merrell hikers, and my feet were more comfortable than they have been in a while. I got size large and my feet are about 10 1/2 in mens, and these fit perfect. The only thing I don't like is that they are kinda pricey and you only get 1 pair, but you get what you pay for I guess. I will definitely buy another pair.
Over the last few years I've phased out my cheap white socks in favor of these darn tough socks, about a dozen pairs.
Multiple holes after a few uses, and the company doesn’t stand by warranty.
These used to be good socks. They used to run 12-14$ or so and you couldn't beat them. The last pair I got after the price hike got a hole in the upper part inside two weeks. It wasn't impeding function so I kept them anyway, not long after they developed a hole in the toe just like I'd expect from a pair of cheap socks. They've sold out. Avoid these.
Perfect thickness. Not so thick that they’re hard to get your shoes on, but still feel substantial. Manufacturing quality looks excellent. My one complaint is that they feel just a bit short in the calves, like they’re sliding down, like I want to keep pulling them up. That may pass. Will see how they hold up to wear and washing.
I wear hiking socks most days and my default favourite are Thorlos Light Hiking Socks. Thought I'd give these a try though as they get good reviews but have to confess to being a little disappointed. Despite the Merino they don't seem as warm as the Thorlos and oddly seem more clammy when your feet do get hot. They also require more washing care and don't do well in a dryer whereas the Thorlos seem fairly indestructible. One area they probably will excel at though, being Merino, is in not getting too smelly if you wear your socks for more than a day before washing, which I don't, hence I can't give an opinion based on experience.
Really good socks, was searching around for reviews and what would actually work, these were great, comfy and hard wearing, on the walk It was wet but the socks held up great they got wet but caused no rubbing and dried out quick
Very comfy socks. I was mocked by the other half for the price that I have paid for these socks but due to Darn Toughs guarantee I thought it would be a wise investment as I am forever replacing socks with holes in them!
Wear as a 2nd pair of socks with walking boots and all soreness is gone.
Not cheap, but well worth it. You'll float with these on.
So comfortable and hard wearing. Best socks I've ever bought. Well worth the money.
Wore them for 16 miles and i got blisters, feet kept moving around in them, when i says they wouldnt.
Nice comfortable pair of socks but not worth the money !
Hopefully, these socks will last. Service was great.
I have been wearing these almost exclusively since I bought them (5 pairs). You could probably wear these for days but I only go two days and they are fine. I also wear these instead of slippers. They are so comfortable. I used to wear two pairs of socks in my work boots but that is not needed for these. The antibacterial nature of the wool makes them feel 'clean' when they go on until they come off even if I use them a second day. These are some special socks that I would recommend for every day wear and especially as gifts.
The name says it all...these are the only socks I've ever had that last, and they are the only socks I will continue to buy.
Softest finest brand of hiking sock that I have tried and I have tried many including Wigwam, Thorlo, Fox River (still a favourite), Smartwool, Icebreaker, etc. All were available on Prime for prices similar to the outfitters - lots of variations for various treks and such.
after switching to Darn Tough socks I haven't worn anything else. Nothing has kept my feet feeling secure and fresh like they do, and even my oldest pair hasn't had a tear or hole and looks to be in great shape.
Awesome socks! Lifetime warranty and can’t be beat! I wear them all year round when I’m working. I used to wear cheap cotton socks and didn’t know what I was missing. Worth the price.
