Darn Tough Vermont is a family owned sock company that has been making socks for three generations. With the Green Mountains as their backyard, it provides them with the perfect playground to design and test the best all weather performance sock that we can make.
A couple things that make Darn Tough unique, besides being made right in Vermont, are our materials, our craftsmanship. We use a 21.5 Fine Gauge Merino Wool that is shrink treated which allows us to achieve more stitches per square inch in our socks and also makes them a lot more durable. We make several different models of socks. Everything from quarter socks which are going to come to just over the top of a low cut shoe or boot, to the micro-crew which is our best seller and this sock is going to come right to the top of a standard hiking boot, to the boot sock Boot Cushioned and Full Cushioned.
Boot socks, which I have here, are going to extend up the calf and over the top of the boot a good bit. As I said, they make Boot Cushion and Full Cushion socks. So on a cushion sock we use that fine gauge merino wool and bring the cushioning over the heel and all the way under the foot to the toe. In contrast, on a full cushion sock we take that Merino Wool and it goes all the way around the sock in its entirety giving you a little extra cushioning and making the sock a little bit warmer.
The two fabrics that we work with primarily is the Fine Gauge Merino Wool that I mentioned earlier and we also have our own exclusive Coolmax yarn so if you have wool allergies or just prefer a synthetic sock, you can get into the Coolmax sock which is exceptionally good for warm weather.
One of the most important features of Darn Tough Vermont Socks is that every single pair of socks that we make comes with a Lifetime Guarantee. We put that right on the box. What that means is that if these socks are not the most comfortable, most durable socks that you have ever had, you can return them for your money back.
