Why We Like It

Made of a 61% Merino Wool, 37% Nylon, 2% Lycra® Spandex blend, these socks have a performance fit, fine gauge knitting, moisture control, quick-drying, and naturally antimicrobial. Mid-level cushion density under foot will keep your feet comfortable when conditions demand it. 1/4 sock height sits right above the ankle–perfect for low-cut trail running shoes like the Adidas Terrex Fast R GTX.

About Darn Tough Socks: Thru-hikers logging hundreds of miles on the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trail swear by Darn Tough's incredibly sturdy socks. While you're likely not going to be trekking hundreds of miles on your trip, the same properties that make these socks great on the trail make them ideal for traveling. Merino wool makes them soft, stretchy, naturally sweat-wicking, and odor-resistant – keeping your feet comfortable under all conditions, even when they're wet. What sold me on DarnTough socks' is the unconditional lifetime guarantee, "If our socks are not the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned, return them for another pair, or your money back. No strings. No conditions.For life." While I have not owned my for life, after a few years of hardcore use they still preform like new.
