I bought a pair of "Darn Tough Vermont Men's Merino Wool Micro Crew Cushion Hiking Socks, Oatmeal, Large (10-12)"
So i bought 15 pairs of darn toughs cos i thought they were so great, after two wears a pair has a huge hole in them! WTF!? thought they were tough? So I go to use the 'lifetime unconditional guarantee' and I have to ship them myself!. Which is half the cost of the socks... I bought 18 pairs in the last three months, which I told them. but this is the customer service you will get people. So be warned about that 'unconditional' life time guarantee, it has conditions!
I have been buying the Kirkland brand hiking wool socks, and love them. Since they are far less expensive, I figured heck I could wear out several pair for the cost of one pair of Darn Tough socks. But after hearing so much about DT socks, I bought a pair to give them a go. The difference is substantial, and for lots of reasons, they are worth the added cost. The Kirkland socks are bigger and thicker, see photo. So, you might think that's better, but you would be wrong. The weave is very loose see second picture, which not only makes them thicker, but causes problems with bunching and pilling. The DT socks have a very tight weave. I live in San Diego and most of my hiking is in warm weather, the DT socks are way better in this regard. The Kirkland have 1% spandex, while the DT has 3%, this results in less stretching over time, and a better fit. Dryers are hard on elastic, but the DT holds up better in the long run, with higher content. The DT fit better new, and fit better after washing. The DT fit lower on the calf, but I prefer that myself, and of course there are other versions if you like higher coverage.
Darn Tough socks are the best socks I have owned.
I have several pairs of Darn Tough socks already so I figured I could count on the same quality. These socks are barely thicker than dress socks. I immediately processed my return. Check the reviews ALL the latest reviews are 1 star apparently they are fake or quality took a nose dive.
Lifetime guarantee, no seam, quality wool sock, antimicrobial and antibacterial.. what more reason do you need?
Best socks ever! I'm a nurse full time and a carpenter part time. These socks are amazing as are most high content merino wool garments. But, these are are well made America products! These are ALL I wear. It took 4 pairs 2.5 years to wear down the external layer on the balls of my feet. Cost me a couple bucks to return them, had new ones on my abused feet within a few short weeks! I'm good for a couple more year's! Merino wool is amazing, no stink, no itch, durable and feel great when it's hot or cold outdoors. Ask any back country hiker/climber, nearly every garment they use is typically made of merino wool; long johns, gloves, hats etc. Did I say, "these are made in Vermont!"
Not great socks, very expensive, developed a hole in the toe after about 100miles of wear. Claimed in the warranty and never heard a thing. Crap socks, crap warranty, crap uk distributor.
Bought on the recommendation of ‘ Trail’ magazine as their best all round sock. Fit is good with little bunching around my little toes. Warm, but not toasty, they are an excellent all round sock that work well in a large variety of shoes, boots and my wellingtons. Though pricey, they are worth the extra. A worthy winner of the best in test by Trail.
Great product loved it!!!
I have bought three pairs of these socks, they are slightly expensive but I would buy more of these and recommend them. The goods arrived in the time I was told they would arrive.
Comfortable and strong. I haven't worn these in extreme heat or cold yet but so far they've been well suited to both warm and cool days.
This is a good quality sock that helps my son's feet breathe easier and be less sweaty.
Good quality socks
Keep your feet warm!
Nice and supportive.
Purchased as a gift,
Very comfortable, fit great.
So far so good. These size 12-14 socks fit well as I am size 13 US, they are comfortable and they seem to wash well with no shrinking. I bought them for their lifetime warranty as I was tired of replacing socks all the time and each time not knowing if the sock brand was still the same style. For these socks to be worth the price they will have to last 10 times as long as cheaper socks, like Hanes (currently $2.82 per pair on Amazon) which seldom last more than 10 washes ( I am very hard on socks). I will update in a year as to whether these socks are still intact and comfortable.
They don't seem to be anything special. My feet seemed to get cold just as quickly with these socks, and if it's warm inside they can quickly become hot. The cushioning is ok though. I'll test them for a while longer, but I was expecting more tbh
These socks are tight on the feet of a man with size 13 feet. and they say there are 13-15 or something like that.
