Rated4out of5bywebbakerfromBest wool socks I've ever boughtI hardly ever wear non-wool socks any more, as the modern wool sock is so much more comfy. These are the best of the best that I've found. Only time will tell how durable they are, but the lifetime guarantee is impressive.

Rated5out of5byStumpHumperfromA rare great productBelieve the hype.
I went from cotton socks to synthetic, and I thought those were good for a while, until I wore out several pairs after maybe 6 months.
I happened upon these on the internet somewhere, and gave them a try. The quality and comfort was excellent right away. After a while, I decided to buy some more. After two years, they show almost zero wear, and I won't wear anything else. I just bought some crew socks to wear in the winter.
I wear them everywhere: running, biking, working, casual, to bed-everywhere.
The odor resistance is excellent. I can sometimes wear them a few times in a row, although now I have enough of them so that it's not necessary.
They might seem expensive, but I could easily spend more on replacing lesser socks.

Rated4out of5byTim 1fromSimply the best.Used 3 pairs of these socks on my '12 AT thru hike. They performed phenomenally. They totally blew me away by their refusal to hold odors. Other socks I'd used for hiking would REEK. Don't get me wrong, these socks didn't always smell like sunshine and roses, but they did an incredible job of resisting odor.
On top of that, they felt great, looked great, were light, and very durable. I wore small holes in all of my pairs (that's what 2000 miles will do...). DarnTough held 100% true to their guarantee and replaced all of the pairs FOR FREE. Can't get better than that.
Gave 4/5 stars because they eventually started retaining more odor.

Rated5out of5byhiker1234567fromBest Socks AnywhereI discovered these socks in Vermont while thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. I was initially interested because the company has a lifetime guarantee: If these socks don't perform, they will replace them no questions asked. I was absolutely fed up with smart-wool socks after wearing out about a dozen pairs. So I tried Darn Toughs. With two pairs, I finished the trail (~500 miles) without a single hole. After several years, I still own these socks and wear them almost exclusively. I finally managed to wear a hole in the original pair on the PCT, but I definitely got my money's worth.
They dry really well, they are super comfortable, and insanely durable. These are the only socks I will ever need to buy.
