Likes: This is my 4th pair Darn tough socks. They are super comfortable and very durable. I use this particular sock with hiking boots and they are high enough to cover your leg from the top of the boot. I started using them for backpacking and now they are my go-to sock for just about anything. How could you go wrong with their Lifetime guarantee?!? Buy them and you won't regret it!
