Great, everyday sock

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are a great everyday sock. Since they're not wild colors, they're easy to wear under a pair of jeans or slacks for work. They're also great for bike rides, hiking, or even just hanging around the house.

Love these - go anywhere, use for any activity from work to skiing - love them!

Great Socks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love em, I have a pair of darn toughs on me at all times.

Converted sister from smartwool

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

Bought this as a gift to my sister, who has been obsessed with smartwool and she absolutely loves them. I've owned Darn tough for many years and have finally converted her. Smartwool has some fantastic gear, but I prefer the durability of Darn Tough. Fits true to size.

Nice socks but leg band is tight

  • Fit: Runs small

They have no cushion and fit well in low-volume shoes. Unfortunately, the leg band is too tight for me. I'm slim, even in the feet/ankles, but have somewhat larger calves, so they may be OK for thinner legs. Otherwise, size L fit well (my casual shoe size is 8.5-9M). The fabric isn't soft, but it's not uncomfortable.

Solid basic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I put these socks to good use, perfect for fall and winter casual wear. They aren't a thick sock I used for hiking primarily for a dresser outfit to the office. Even though these socks aren't as thick as other Darn Tough socks my feet stay relatively warm. I would definitely recommend to someone who is looking for a lightweight casual sock that you can wear to the office then out to a date with some cute Sorrel boots. I ordered a size small and my feet are a size 5.5 in women.

Darn Tough Never Fails

    These socks are just as amazing as Darn Tough's hiking socks, but in a slightly thinner version for casual use. I love the basic colors and wear these all the time with boots! The material is not too thin at all either. I know I can expect to use these for several years before they wear out.

    Most durable sock ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Bought these for my wife who wheres socks out like no other. Still no holes after months. They were a great investment.

    Nice socks.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Ordered the medium and returned them for the large. Socks seemed a little too snug.
