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.

Skeptical at first, but now I’m sold.

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.

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.

Remarkable scent protection

The scent blocking/anti microbial properties really have to be seen in person to believe. Typically I take my shoes off at the end of the day and the scent is noticeable from 5 feet away. These socks you can give a whiff from one inch away and the smell of laundry detergent is more present than any trace of foot odor! Truly remarkable and they blow my other similarly priced wool socks out of the water in this area. Whether it’s hiking 10 miles in 85 degree weather or just trekking through the supermarket my feet naturally sweat a lot. I’ve also been battling athletes foot on and off all my life. Even with good hygiene my feet just need special needs. I’ve gone through a great variety of sock types and these are easily at the top of my list. Expensive yes, but to me these socks represent a refreshing change from the disposable and designed to fail era we live in. Take into account the warranty and that one hike blogger tested 700 miles of useful life these are well worth it.

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.

warm in the winter, pretty tough

I bought these because I live in Chicago and winter was really freaking cold. these solved my problem and I wore them everyday, alternating with a second pair. i know they are lifetime guarantee and i’m going to follow up on that soon, since mine obviously are wearing through. they aren’t too hot either, they just keep you warm, so they’re also good on cool days. the photo shows the wear on the soles of the sock after about seven months of continuous use

My husband is the “Shredder of Socks”. He can go through 3 pairs of store bought in a month! He is a professional gardener and does property maintenance. He walks up to 10 miles a day in military boots in all weather, year round. These socks have last my husband about two years! I am amazed at how long theses socks have lasted under his use. More importantly, he loves them. Even though they cost more than store socks, he really likes that his feet do not get blisters or sore spots from rubbing. He actually asks for them specifically for christmas. I haven’t tried to get a refund on the socks he wears out due to the nature of his work so I don’t know what the company is like. It just seems to me that Fair is fair, and I imagine for the average person, they would last a lifetime. I strongly recommend them just for the comfort under harsh conditions. I have a pair of Darn tough women’s socks I wear around the house without shoes. For me, two years and counting, no hole or tears. We will continue to buy these.

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.

My plantar fascitis magically disappeared after 3 days in these socks

I wear a size 17 shoe, and these in XXL fit perfectly. I also have plantar fascitis in my left foot and, unexpectedly, it feels better after 3 days in these socks than it has in years. I have no idea why this is.
