300lb hiker tested over 100’s of miles = Better than Smart Wool Socks
Wore through my Smart Wool Socks and needed some new socks while thru hiking the Appalachian trail. Compare socks used for hundreds of miles of wear in boots by a 280+ pound man with 30+ pounds of gear on his back and you have a durability test that shows Darn Tough at the top of the list.
They went on easy, but as they stretched a bit over the …
I wear a 10.5 shoe/boot which calls for a large according to the Darn Tough size chart. Problem with the large is they were slightly too long and had too wide of a toe box at the very front, and I have a wide forefoot! They went on easy, but as they stretched a bit over the course of an hour so, began to bunch up at the toes, especially at the outsides near the smaller toes. Never had this problem with any socks before. Most large socks are sized 9.5-12, and have plenty of stretch/rebound to span the sizes, but these don’t stretch or rebound much, so I had to exchange for the mediums. They are a bit more snug when putting them on, but not enough to be a problem. I don’t notice them being more snug once I put my shoes on, likely due to them stretching in a few minutes, nor do I notice anything binding or uncomfortable throughout the day.
Skeptical at first, but now I’m sold.
Rarely does a product work this well.
Darn Tough or somebody seems to have quite an interest in how they fit so I will start there. I bought X-Large and they feel a tad snug. I have average width size 13 Mens feet with a high arch. The interesting thing about these socks is that when a sock feels snug it means they are going to be cold as they will not trap any air if the sock is stretched or squeezed thin- but not these socks. Not at all, I need allot of performance from my fishing socks as I wade in cold rivers and and slog through PNW winters for hours on end in pursuit of Steelhead Salmon Trout and peace and quiet. I’ve tried all sorts of socks, pairs of socks, cheap wool socks, expensive wool socks, athletic socks, hiking socks, with the best up intill now being Smartwool hiking socks, but these are the best BY FAR. My feet simply do not get cold in these. It is pretty amazing. I’ll theorize that the blend of fibers is such that they have sufficient structure to trap air no matter what- and maybe that is why they feel a tad snug..?.. In any case, my dogs stay warm, yet they can breath so they stay dry, and at the end of a long day fishing I just leave them on. That is a first! really a great product. 6 stars! BTW I’ve washed them 6-8 times and so far so good. If they last a season (20-25 days or so) I’ll would be thrilled to buy another pai and I might not need to.
I am the world’s most frugal person – paying over $20 dollars for a single pair of socks gave me a panic attack with a load of regret.
These really are Darn Tough
Out of my duty to the Amazon community, I wore these bad boys for a week straight while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. I just had to know, are these really darn tough?
check to make sure you get the right model, I was sent crew cut twice!
Socks are great if you get the ones ordered.
I wouldn’t call these hiking socks.
I bought a pair of these to try based on the recommendation of a few people who hunt. These seem to be really quality made socks, and seem to have great support, but hiking socks they are not. The pair I got did not have a flat seam across the toe box. Just putting them on to check the fit I could feel the corner seam on the edge rubbing against my little and big toes. I’ve had issues in the past with getting hot spots there which went away once I got flat seam socks. These may be great casual wear or general duty work socks, but I could never trust them in the back country.
Best socks I’ve found so far. Like anything that protects your feet, absolutely worth the money.
Probably the best socks I’ve ever owned.

The quality of the sock is excellent. It was great to find such a high quality sock in size 15-17. The problem is while the sock is appropriately sized as to length, it is terribly undersize in what I would call “diameter” [ the length between the tail end of the ankle to the top side of your foot taken at a 45 degree angle] i.e. I can’t pull the sock over my ankle without great force and then it is too tight in that area. Bottom line, they didn’t take the effort to properly size the sock for BIG feet. They just made to foot length long and left all the other dimensions the same. This is an all too common sizing problem in big & tall products.
