    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)

    I had one pair I bought while living in Vermont (4+ years ago), and they are still great. Now in Boston, I searched for these online specifically because of their quality. The first pair I bought is still in use and 100% up to par with a new pair: elastic, comfort, warmth

    Extremely dense weave with good seams/moisture wicking material/soft and comfortable. Dare I say stylish? You will not be disappointed.

    UNCONDITIONALLY guaranteed for life... I will gladly buy another pair if these things wear out.

    As a warehouse worker I'm on my feet 10+ hours and I go through socks like butter on hotcakes.
    When I got these I wasnt expecting to like them,but I was wrong.
    They are the perfect blend of thickness, and they really keep your feet cool (or warm) and cushioned even in steel toes.
    They feel solid and the stitching is almost seamless ,but lets give them a good 6 months of intense warehouse conditions and see how they'll hold up; then I'll update.
    If their still good, then it'll be a 5 star for me.
    (6 Month Update)
    After 6 months I just DARN love these socks. Changed from 4 to a big 5 stars.
    They have kept up exceptionally well. The stitching is still perfect, the elasicity in the neck did loosen a little ,but that happens from washing as much as I have to, and the colors are still very much their. I've come to love them so much I bought 6 more pairs and now wear them everyday.
    Darn Tough is well worth the money spent.
    Why are you still reading this?
    Buy them Darn it!

    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.

    They're great, comfortable socks. Breathe very well to keep your feet dry. Thick enough to make boots comfortable, while not so thick that your feet overheat in the summer.

    I finally had the opportunity to warranty one of the first pairs I bought as a hole had started to form. Filled out the warranty form on their website and shipped my socks back. After a week or two they sent me an e-mail with a code for their site for a free pair of socks (includes shipping, paid $0).

    Thought this was pretty cool and let me try out a slightly different type of sock that I would not have normally bought. Warranty process was hassle free, which was an initial concern when I bought these originally.

    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.

    Update: they shrank a little after washing in warm and drying on low. That hasn’t helped the issue with them sliding down my ankles. Final judgment - I wouldn’t buy them again, especially for their price.

    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!
    These socks are cushioned around the heel and ball of your foot which is great when walking longs distances. They are also very good at keep my feet warm when needed and cool when needed!

    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.

    If you really want to show your appreciation for someone give them a pair of these. They will be converted to using these from the day they put them on. What an amazing product. I didn't know they still made stuff like this.

    I even contacted the company to tell them they need to make more clothing items. Imagine a T shirt or sweater that never wore out. How revolutionary

    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.

    Keep your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer - although you may want to get the ultralights for those extra hot days.

    Will be tossing out all my Cotton socks for these as soon as I can!

    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.
