Fair price for a good looking sock
Preliminary review. The socks are made of fine along fiber shiny dense wool yarn. They have low compressibility when squeezed between the fingers. I am not looking for fluffy socks. I want them to last. They feel sturdy and maybe even a little stiff. I have only worn these socks a couple of times. I will be looking for durability. I weigh a lot and I tend to go stocking footed around the house. Most of my socks don’t last me six months. After that they get thin under the ball and heal and soon develop holes.
My new standard running / workout socks.
Blow away the Smartwool low runners I was wearing, and Smart Wool was never available and also had SO MANY varieties of socks (line extension anyone?) that it was an absolute chore to choose a style.
Warm and comfortable socks
These socks keep my feet warm on long runs in cold NYC days. Cotton socks for half marathons and 10k’s in 20 degree weather can leave your feet numb or at least uncomfortable. A friend recommended wool socks. I picked up these, which seem both durable and definitely make a difference in terms of warmth. They are slightly small for the sizing as a few others have noted. But from my perspective, it’s close enough that you can still pick your regular size without concern.
I now measure time as before and after darn tough socks.

The price is a huge turn off but:

No socks have ever fit me quite like these, they fit snug and nice and don’t move around on your feet. They are not loose and sloppy like most socks I’ve owned.
These a great socks.
I really like these socks. They are a bit pricey for socks, but you have to look at them as a one time purchase. Wear them out and Darn Tough will replace them. I actually prefer the ultra light cushion better but these are great too. In case you didn’t know wool doesn’t hold odors. Take them off, air them out, and put them back on the next day! Seems gross but it is true. That is a great trait in a sock if you only have a couple pairs with you. Did I mention I really like these socks? Get a pair and you will too!
Maybe my favorite summer socks
Darn tough has become my favorite sock brand because they’re very comfortable and, in spite of the price, a great value due to their durability and exchange guarantee (although I doubt if I’ll get a chance to test it). I like these particular socks because they have a special kind of character of their own. Maybe it’s the tabs on the top… I don’t know, but they do get noticed & complimented. Who knew? I just wanted some no- show merino socks 🙂
Good socks (you get what you pay for)
I do wish the design of the sock was a little different, I bought the orange/gray pair to match with my orange/gray Merrel Bare Access 2 shoes.
If God wore socks, He would wear these

These socks are a gift from the Gods. The ultra-light version is better for warmer climates, but this version is still tolerable. They’re super-comfy and dry fast in a hotel room. The extra padding from the quality wool is nice and they resist odor very well. These are one of the best socks on the planet, in my opinion.
Great pair of socks. Already bough another pair
I purchased these and SmartWool socks at the same time to figure out which I liked best. Both are premium men’s athletic socks, but they feel completely differently. These are thick without much give whereas the SmartWool are super thin and stretchy and easy to put on. I recommend both depending and what shoes you have and what your preference is. I plan on buying more of both in the future.
