Hiker Micro Crew Cushion Sock

Darn Tough gave the Merino Wool Micro Crew Cushion Hiking Sock a dash of spandex and nylon so your trail-tromping paws stay extra comfy while you tick off the miles. The Micro Crew blows away your heavy, itchy wool socks with its built-in elastic arch support and high-density padding in the heel and toes. Darn Tough built these midweight beauties with merino wool that’s naturally resistant to stinky odors and manages moisture to keep your feet blister-free.

  • Socks built for thru-hikers, backpackers, and peak baggers
  • Merino wool blend manages moisture and resists odor
  • Moderate cushioning underfoot provides padding underfoot
  • True Seamless construction reduces risk of blisters
  • Performance Fit reduces bunching and slipping
  • Darn Tough socks are made in Vermont, USA

Size chart is WRONG

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

I wear women's 10.5/11 shoes, have several size Lare Darn Tough socks & love them. Darn Tough must have changed their sizing but not updated their charts however and this pair of L are way too big.

The package reads L/G (US) Women = 12-14
The size chart says Women's L = 10-11.5 (US), 41-42.5 (EU) and 7.5-9 (UK)

Best socks ever!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Darn Tough is all I wear now. They are the best socks on the market, no question. They last the longest, the most comfortable and the best value. Don’t bother with any other brand, just buy this brand. I must have 10 pairs and they last and last... I hate that they rarely go on sale but buy them normally full price because they ultimately are such good value in terms of quality.

Ridiculously Undersized

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought XXL size, which should fit size 15-17. I am a size 14, and bought these because the size XL are small. I could barely get them on. Verrrrrrrrry impressive, Darn Tough. Back they go.

You should stretch them before you put them on. They do shrink after washing. Stretching makes them easier to get on. I like the tightness because they work well as compression socks.

Awesome Socks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These socks are awesome. I wear Darn Tough daily, for work and casual and easily have about 20 pairs of socks. My work socks are 10+ years old, and are going strong. My casual socks of equal age have finally started to show their age. While I could use the "lifetime guarantee" and get new ones free of charge, I'd feel a little guilty getting free ones with how much I've worn them.

Great Socks

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I purchased these for my Girlfriend and she loves them! She told me that she likes the fit and, comfort and the cushion is just the right level for hiking and backpacking.

Merino wool done better

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got these for my Mom, here's what she has to say:

I've always loved merino wool socks for the comfort factor but for whatever reason these last much longer and are only slightly less soft. I'm totally sold on Darn Tough over any other sock!

Big fan of these socks - rival Smartwool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Darn Tough makes quality long lasting socks, and have a great warranty to go with it. They are a great thickness for hiking or casual use, and breath well too. If you are used to Smartwool and try these out they may feel a bit different at first, but once they break in they are extremely comfortable.
I'd highly recommend.

great fit

    great fit and comfortable for all day hiking

    Fit Amazingly and Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These socks feel great. I love the micro crew length. I am a 7.5 shoe and I went with the small and they fit perfectly, not too tight, but they dont move around or bunch up at all even after long days.

    darn tuff socks

      These socks are warm and supportive in all the right places. A real treat for your feet, be it a day of landscaping, a hike thru the fall landscape, or a neighborhood stroll.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Just like it sounds they are DARN TUFF so TUFF that they will last forever well as long as the company sticks around that is. Life Time baby

      Great mountain socks

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I already have a few Darn Tough socks and wanted to stock up. These socks are perfect in every way - super supportive, warm, they stay dry, and the colors are super cute. If you are a female, be aware that these are not female specific socks. I accidentally ordered the wrong size initially and had to return for a smaller size! I wear a size 8.5 and originally ordered a medium, when I needed to order a small since these are based off of men's sizes.

      Best Socks!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Got these as a gift for my dad, they are the only ones he will wear in the outdoors. They keep his fit warm and dry for long days ice-fishing and hunting.

      Very warm

        I used these in the fall for hiking and they kept my feet nice a toasty. Highly recommend

        Long Lasting Comfort

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This sock is a staple. I have many pairs of them, outside the peak heat summer season I wear them all year long. Great for hiking or just everyday outings. In the past I've had other brand socks wear thin, get holes, and lose elasticity. These socks really are long lasting and hold their fit.

        Darn Tough is the best!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These socks are durable, comfortable, & perfect for any activity!

        Perfect Mountain Sock

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Love these guys and wear them for everything from backpacking to mountaineering. They fit great, are super comfortable and last forever.

        Perfect Mountain Sock

        Great socks

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I've bought other socks from Darn Tough before, and shared them with my family. One of my brothers asked for these as a gift and he is very pleased with them. Great for working and running.

        Love em

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Where these socks for everything. Great for anything outdoors and last forever.

        My go to socks

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have bought several types of socks to hike in, and these are my first choice to put on when im hiking.
