Essentially disappearing in both looks and feel when you slip them on, the Men's Vertex No Show Tab Socks are the lightest socks that Darn Tough makes, yet are still incredibly tough and comfortable. The merino wool construction makes these socks a fast-drying, breathable "all-weather" pair that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The True Seamless construction keeps hotspots and blisters to a minimum, while the natural anti-microbial properties of the Merino wool repel bacteria and odors when you're laying down the miles.

Darn Tough Quality so far - not no show

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As mentioned by another reviewer, it's not completely "no show". Still I love the quality of such a think sock. I hate wearing thick socks, and these are great for hikes, workouts, and every day use. My feet don't get cold very easily, and the wool is enough to keep them warm and wick any sweat away so I don't end up with clammy feet.

Not impressed

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

After two days of trail running in dry, wet, muddy conditions I was happy to not have blisters but unimpressed with the fact the socks had stretched out to the point of not fitting tight on my ankle . I also found one hole already in them. I am a very avid user of darn tough socks from runners to mountaineering socks and this pair just is not their normal quality

Good quality, but not no-show

Overall I think Darn Tough makes awesome socks. And the guarantee is awesome. These socks feel great, and while I have only worn them a few times, I expect them to last a long time.
My only issue is that they are cut high. Definitely not no-show. I would put them at a crew sock. For my foot, they could have taken a full inch of sock off the top and MAYBE gotten close to a no show sock. I will keep them to wear with pants, but they are too high to wear with shorts or workout clothes.
