  • I could find none.

Next to coats/jackets, I consider myself a connoisseur of socks. Owning about every well known brand in all shapes and sizes, these are by far my go-to.

The fit of these socks combined with the merino wool has never let me down, regardless of the miles on the trail. The quality is evident before you put them on. They feel "tight" and "solid" and well constructed. They don't give, and stay true to your feet regardless of the conditions you expose them to.

Darn Tough offers socks for everyone with every outdoor enthusiast in mind at a very reasonable price. Add that to excellent reviews from people who use and abuse them and the fact they are made here in the USA, you can't get any better.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

This sock naturally regulates body temperature, naturally antimicrobial, and has extreme wicking power. It's also fast drying with engineered yarn designed to wick moisture and reduce dry time. It's a great choice when keeping cool and dry is the first priority. It's for any mission and any climate. It's also over-the-calf, and has terry rib knit for custom fit. High density cushioning surrounds entire foot and lower leg, has custom shrink treated Merino wool, and ribbing above the ankle insures a proper fit. This sock also has a reinforced heel and toe, elastic support around the arch, and ring toe construction for a comfortable invisible seam. With generous sizing the calf stretches 1 inch more than our traditional sock fit, allowing for a wider range of fit.
