Darn Tough Merino Wool 1/4 Sock Cushion Reviews:


Best socks I have ever owned

I use these for cycling, running and light hiking. Just like their hiking models, these socks are super durable, have great cushioning comfort. I have started to invest in multiple pairs to wear regularly as well. They wick away enough moisture to wear when its warm, but have plenty of wool content to keep my feet warm in the colder months. They are worth every penny. I am thrilled to have found this product and have given many pairs as gifts because I think they are so good.

Best socks = Darn Tough!

I have several pairs of Darn Tough socks and won't trust my feet to anyone else!
The fit, feel, and functionality are excellent!
Check out that lifetime warranty!

Great Socks

I have only had them one month, so far they are great, too early to tell about durability

Great Socks and a lifetime guarantee!

Made in Vermont. Reinforced not to wear through. And if they do, they are lifetime guaranteed!

Feels like fur-lined armour

These socks are warm without being too thick.
