Rated 5 out of 5 by gonefishin3 Best Socks
Men's Darn Tough Socks are the best socks I have ever purchased. I had purchased some of these last year. They are comfortable in the fall, winter and spring. They wear like iron. I usually have worn a whole in my socks in a year's time. These socks show no sign of wear at all. They are expensive, but in my opinion are worth the price. Which is why I just bought 2 more pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NotYourNickname Cool -- no, WARM socks!
I love 'em. I've always worn rag-wool socks, which have been pretty good for New England winters. On my daughter's advice, I decided to try these Darn Tough socks and, so far, I'm delighted with them. True, they haven't been subjected to the sub-zero treks up the mountain that they will be, but so far, after a month of modestly cold weather, I couldn't be happier. They fit well (I'm on the border between M and L, and opted for L ... though I think M would have worked fine), they retain their stretchy character without relaxing through at least 3 washings, and I plan to buy a few more pairs as my old rag-wool socks continue to wear out.

I bought these on a whim when I bought my classic Bean boots and love the socks. I will be buying more and even some of the thicker cushion socks for hunting.

Never paid this much for a pair of sox in my life,but these sox are worth every penny. Very comfortable in ANY shoe you wear. I have tried shoe inserts,lifts & you name it I have tried it. These sox will blow you way with the comfort they offer. You will never buy a better pair of sox anywhere. If there were 10stars, that is what I would give these sox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHhikerchef Best socks I've ever owned
I've been wearing Darn Touch socks for years and can't say enough good things about them. I wear them year round, cool in summer and warm in winter and like the name they are darn tough. I own 5 pair now and I can't wear them out. Try a pair as you'll be hooked on them. Cost is cheap because they last forever..

Rated 5 out of 5 by ATHikers Most comfortable and durable socks for backpacking
My husband and I have been wearing Smartwool socks for years, but each bought a pair of Darn Toughs in 2013 when on an extended AT hike. While our Smartwools stretched out and held odor even after washing when we returned, the Darn Toughs retained their shape and held much less odor, even while on the trail. We're still wearing those socks and have purchased several more pairs for our 1400 mile hike this year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GrandmaNoni A little too short
My husband says the following about these socks. I like the socks but wish they were a little longer. They don't go up high enough for me on my calf. I feel like I need to pull them up all the time which is a little bothersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConstructionJunkie Durable on the Appalachian Trail
I am a section hiker on the Appalachian Trail, and tend to chat with the trough hikers every chance I get about quality gear. The one sock I heard recommended over and over was Darn Tough socks, so I had to try some myself.
I ordered two pairs, and hiked 150 miles in them, alternating every day. No blisters, no visible wear on the socks, and very little odor after 10+ hours in my impermeable boots. I was so impressed I proceeded to replace all of my work socks with these, I now have 5 pair and wear them every day to work, whether it is the office or the jobsite. My feet have never been happier! I have rotated through these for 8 months, including several long-distance hikes, and only a few of the socks are slightly stretched out above the ankle. Every where else they are as good as new.
To the one reviewer who claims these are overpriced and wearing quickly, I'm not exactly sure what you are doing wrong, but I would guess your footwear is ill-fitting, which could cause any wool sock to pill. These shouldn't wear early, in fact I know several through hikers who started with only two or three pairs of these, and made it over 1000 miles before any of them wore through.
If somehow you do manage to wear these out, both Darn Tough and Bean have amazing customer support. One call to Darn Tough, even if you are on the trail, and they will route you to the nearest retailer for a no-questions-asked replacement. If you aren't on the trail and can afford to wait, Bean will ship you a replacement in a hurry as well.
Bottom line? Buy these socks now, they are the last set you'll ever need.

Rated 2 out of 5 Too pricey
The blurb sounds good - made here in the USA etc. merino wool - which is why I bought two pairs. But they are wildly overpriced - and after one wearing, the wool started to ball up.
