Customer Reviews

I work outside 12 to 14 hours a day in steel toe boots and these are the only socks I wear. Also wore them for a trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal. I wear them on weekends too. Enough said. Five thumbs up!! -Lisa C
I don’t usually pay a lot for socks, but my son gave a pair of these and I loved them! So I splurged and bought several pairs. I am very pleased with the purchase. These socks are very comfortable and durable. I highly recommend them and not just for hiking, which is the use I had in mind when I purchased them. These Darn Tough socks are practical for everyday work and casual wear of any kind. -Steve Parker
These Darn Tough socks are everything you could want and more!! I wear them hiking, working out, and as everyday socks. They are extremely comfortable! Snug enough to stay put, but not overbearingly tight. Do your feet a favor and pick up a pair!-Jake W
