Darn Tough Over-the-Calf Lightweight

user rating: 5 of 5 (2 reviews)

Darn Tough intended these lightweight, over the calf socks for snow sports as a thin sock inside tight, form fitting boots. The merino wool blended with synthetic fibers to increase elasticity and wear made them a great liner sock with excellent moisture wicking properties.

Reasons to Buy

  • Darn Tough makes good socks
  • Very close fit
  • Good wicking for a thin sock
  • Elasticity is very durable
  • Comes in pretty patterns
  • Vermont made
  • DT Guarantee

Reasons to Avoid

  • No cushion bottom
  • Material stiffens when soiled

Darn Tough makes a wide variety of socks and most folks seem to like the ones they try. My personal previous experience with their socks was limited to a single pair that I didn't especially care for and I didn't bother to get replaced when they got a hole despite the famous guarantee. They still look too small without my feet in them. When looking for over-the-calf socks to wear with the Amundsen Peak Knickerbockers I came across these and the pretty mountains on them caught my eye. I grabbed a couple of pair last April and used them as my primary liner socks for the rest of the year.

Custom Woolen Mills Extra Thick 100% Wool Ankle Socks

user rating: 4.5 of 5 (1 review)

These wool socks are terrifically warm and cushion-y inside rubber boots or winter boots. They're like a favourite sweater made for your feet! Highly recommended for camping or snow sports of any kind. Farmers and construction workers love these socks.

Reasons to Buy

  • 100% wool = warm even when wet
  • Tough springy knit lasts better than cheap socks
  • Wool stinks less than man-made fibres when sweaty

Reasons to Avoid

  • Some people are allergic to wool
  • $20 a pair is not cheap

These are the best warm winter socks I have found. I give them as gifts and they are welcomed by my spouse, son, and construction workers and farmers living on the Canadian prairies, where winters routinely reach -30° and -40° (same in Celsius and Farenheit degrees). Custom Woolen Mills makes them. Check them out at While it's fun to wander around their website learning about wool, I'll sum the important stuff up here for you.
