Smarter than Smart Wool???

I was Darn tired of freezing my feet off in my cold cement floor shop every winter so I finally splurged on a good pair of workboots and decided that good boots deserved great socks so I ordered 2 pairs of Darn Tough socks. Wore them 7 days a week for 2 weeks washing them every other day with little or no odor. Saw a little pilling after the 1st wash (tumble dry low heat with no shrinkage) but the pilling never got any worse (been wearing them most days for a month now). I do wish they were a little higher on the calf. With the lifetime guarentee the Darn Tough socks will last assuming you are willing to send them back for any needed repairs sometime in the distant future but since I’m a lazy soul who will never send worn out socks back for replacement these socks seem great with this limited testing time (a month).

Blister Free

My husband is in the Army and constantly struggles with athletes foot and blisters from hyper-hydrosis (extreme foot sweating). He sometimes gets blisters just from everyday walking around in his combat boots, and always gets blisters every time he runs in the mornings. Yesterday he trained on land-navigation over difficult terrain in the pouring rain. He came home soaking wet and excited about how these socks kept his feet warm in the wet morning and cool when the sun came out from behind the clouds. Most of all he was excited because he had no blisters!

Who knew there were more to socks?

I was skeptical to purchase socks for this price point, as I had previously purchased Under Armor for this same price except for 3 pairs. I figured that was the best socks would ever achieve, little did I know there was a whole ‘nother PLANE that the quality of socks can achieve, and these are it.

I will start off by saying that I was extremely impressed by these socks. The day I got them I was heading to the smokies so I gave them a proper test run there through dense forest up to rugged mountain tops and all in between. I did not get a single blister while wearing these. I always had a tendency to blister while wearing cotton socks because sweat is absorbed by them and we all know that is no good. Also, While hiking downhill my toes often would hurt by getting bunched up in the front of my boots but these socks have enough cushion to eliminate that. Shoot, they eliminated all my foot woes. Just to further emphasize the glory of these socks, I bought a pair of smartwool socks and tried them one morning on the trip and had a blister in under 3 hours. Then I switched back to these and forgot I even had a blister! Oh and all the stuff you read about merino wool not holding odors is completely true. I wore these for 25 miles over 3 days with no washing and I could barely smell anything on them afterwards. No excuses. Pamper your feet and buy these.

Darn Tough, FITS and Fox River socks are all great, forget Smart Wool.

I bought these socks because of their lifetime guarantee, not because it was likely I would return them if there was a problem after a reasonable amount of wear, but because it was proof of the company’s faith in their product.

A perfect compliment for any boot

These are by far the most comfortable hiking socks I’ve ever owned. They don’t hold moisture or cause blisters like cotton, don’t overheat in warmer weather, and stay perfectly warm in cooler weather, even when wet or dirty. The fit is excellent (how many socks are available in 5 distinct sizes?), and so far they have never bunched up or slid down my calf while hiking. After trekking in the same pair for several days (allowing them to air out overnight) they don’t seem to hold any odor and stay soft — not at all “crusty” in the morning. These have been up and down Mt. Adams with me and on numerous shorter hikes, with seemingly no change in fit or quality after many washes. I’m not sure if it’s really necessary, but I’ve always allowed them to air dry.

YOU CANNOT FIND A BETTER WARRANTY THAN DARN TOUGH’S NO QUESTIONS ASKED. I bought an XL for my boyfriend who has a size 13 foot and he used these socks (along with 2 more pairs of Darn Toughs) throughout our entire Appalachian Trail thru hike. Whenever you wear a hole in them- which will take LOTS of hard walking- just take them to an outfitter anywhere and they will give you a brand new pair with absolutely no questions asked. We use Darn Toughs exclusively now because the cushion is so luxurious and we walked 2,184 miles in these bad boys without a SINGLE blister.

Great sock. Watch large/extra-large sizing

I am a big fan of Darn Tough socks and find myself wearing them every chance I have. They do fit snugly, giving a lot of support, and some models with less merino and more Coolmax seem to shrink just a tad, I have found. With that in mind, I sized up to an extra-large in this boot sock and find that the sock is a little long. I wear an 11.5 to 12 D shoe, and the sizing chart puts me at the top end of L or into the 12+ designation for XL. The XL is too big — a little too long (heal rides up the back, and too roomy in the forefoot and toe areas). Comfy and nice, but not a secure fit for ski boots, wading boots, or any technical applications where you might want a snug fit. They will be fine for knocking around in looser fitting snow boots. As with all Darn Tough socks, they are extremely well made a durable.

Darn Tough socks hold-up much longer than any Smartwool I’ve owned.

I’ve been buying the Smartwool socks for 10 years, but found they’d be worn-out after about 2 years. The trick with Smartwools were to NEVER wear them for more than 2 days. But, on an expedition… that wasn’t possible. So, I could wear-out a Smartwool sock in a week of continuous use. Not so with the Darn Tough socks. They really can take a lot of continuous use. I hiked about 100 miles into the Himalayas with just two pair and they still look like new.
