  • . Gainesville FL

    Likes: Absolutely everything, best socks every!

    Dislikes: Absolutely Nothing!

  • Ray D. Valencia CA

    Likes: This is a great sock if you don't llike or need much cushioningt, and it works well for light hiking or general walking. It doesn't bunch or slip (a problem I've had with similar higher-end hiking socks), seems to wear well in that the toes and heels have stayed thick, and keeps its shape.

    Dislikes: I generally like a little more cushioning than these socks provide, which is why I gave them 4 stars, rather than 5. These socks also have about a 50/50 mix or Merino wool and nylon, so for me it seems to run a little warmer than the other versions of this sock that have more Merino wool (like the crew or boot cushion versions). Still a great sock, though; it just doesn't work as well for me as other products in Darn Tough's line.

  • Stephen K. Calexico CA

    Dislikes: A higher wool content would be better and a lower nylon / spandex content would be better too.

  • I-Mei E. Charlotte NC

    Likes: Love it. Comfortable and good cushion. It doesn't shrink in the dryer.

    Dislikes: The sock size is on the small side.

  • Raja B. Elmhurst NY

    Likes: Always were, always will be my favorite socks!

    Dislikes: May stretch/wear out over time, especially if not washed/dried properly. Can send back to DarnTough company for replacement pair though

  • Grant A. Fernley NV

    Likes: Best sock I have used. I have used these multiple days on tough hikes in insulated boots on hot days and when I put them on in the morning they felt like a new pair of socks.

    In my opinion they are better than the smart wool socks.

    Dislikes: none

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Great quality

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Michael I. Pennsburg PA

    Likes: Super comfortable, don't take up too much room, and well worth the money.

    I've been used to hiking in regular cotton boot socks and having to change them out after a little bit of walking. These things kept me comfortable all day.

    Dislikes: N/A

  • Robert D. Scottsdale AZ

    Likes: Just came back form a Grand Canyon hike. Worked great - comfortable, no slippage.

    Dislikes: A little tight around the calf

  • Jeff S. Cedar Hills UT

    Likes: These are my first pair of Darn Tough Socks. They molded to my foot and stayed put. No blisters or discomfort at all on my first 10 mile hike. Looks like they will last a long time. Very comfortable.

    Dislikes: Nothing so far.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Absolutely love these socks! I wear these socks year round for hiking and working. They have put in some long hours in the SC heat in steel-toed boots and they have never smelled or left my feet wet. They are incredibly comfortable, warm for the winter, and wont let your feet stink and sweat in the summer. I would pay 3x as much for these socks especially for the lifetime warantee! By far the BEST socks I have ever come across.

    Dislikes: I wish they had a bit more of a selection of heights and styles, no complaints what so ever about the sock itself.

  • Stanley S. Indianapolis IN

    Likes: Socks stay in place, feel comfortable on the foot and have good support through the arch

    Dislikes: Held more moisture than I expected but dried quickly when off the foot.

  • Andrew J. Charlotte NC

    Likes: These are nicely made, I love the color and design, and have told many friends about the family business and their lifetime guarantee. They're comfortable and handle moisture well. I want another pair!

    Dislikes: They are a little tight across the bridge of my foot, but I don't think I can venture to a larger size as they're already thick enough. Still after wearing them inside boots for a while, I don't notice it.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Fit very comfortably. Haven't got any blisters with them yet, and they work well to keep your feet warm during the night when camping in cooler weather.

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Todd G. Sand Springs OK

    Likes: these are great socks and wear well.

    Dislikes: I plan to buy more of these socks.

  • Michael S. Tulsa OK

    Likes: great socks, my son and I use them for scout camping. Neither of us has ever gotten a blister with these socks no matter which boot we wear.

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Michael S. Tulsa OK

    Likes: great socks, no blisters ever

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Rick C. Franklin IN

    Likes: Great socks, comfortable and durable.

    Dislikes: expensive for a pair of socks

  • Michael Q. Weehawken NJ

    Likes: These are darn great socks, my favorite pair for the winter! Keeps your feet warm and dry all day long, inside & out.

    Dislikes: no complaints whatsoever

  • Ray T. Spring Branch TX

    Likes: These are incredibly nice socks and worth the money - believe it or not. They have a tighter weave on the bottom sole only to provide firm cushioning. That extra cushioning really helps if you have foot problems or if you have to stand on your feet all day. They are made in America so I'm willing to pay a premium for a top quality product.

    Dislikes: none

  • Charles B. Pryor OK

    Likes: Did not get any blisters on five days of canyon backpacking.
    Good fit--lighter than I expected

    Dislikes: A bit expensive but they are holding up well.

  • Richard B. Dover DE

  • Michael S. Tulsa OK

    Likes: comfortable, well made

  • robert r. Wichita Falls TX

    Likes: These are great socks. They fit nice, they feel nice and they look good.

    Dislikes: A little pricey but you get what you pay for.

  • Michael S. Tulsa OK

    Likes: The socks are comfortable and have good cushion. Probably not warm enough for winter camp but kept my feet warm enough with temperatures in the upper 30's.

    Dislikes: The price is a bit high but they have a good rep for durability and a lifetime guarantee.

  • James C. Jackson Heights NY

    Likes: I wore these socks for ten hours straight on a flight to Ukraine. My feet were comfortable throughout the trip. I then hand washed them and used them for hiking. They are strong and made in the USA! A great, comfortable sock.
