Summary: Remarkably comfortable and durable, these socks from Darn Tough Vermont are perfect for trail running, hiking and just about any outdoor adventure that you can dream up.


Comfortable and durable

These socks are made for the discerning outdoorsman. They’re not just darn tough, they are extremely comfortable, form-fitting and have a lightweight cushion in the heel for shock-absorption.

As you might imagine from the company’s name, Darn Tough Vermont socks are made in Vermont; the ultimate testing ground for all-weather high-performance socks. These socks are made from a high-density knit of merino wool, nylon and lycra spandex. The socks’ high thread count means you can expect phenomenal durability and plenty of cushioning without any of the associated bulk. Marino wool is a fantastic natural solution for regulating temperature and does a great job of managing moisture and resisting odors.

The incredible fit of these socks comes thanks to Darn Tough Vermont’s masterful knitting techniques. The toe boxes are form-fitting and have terry loops surrounding the toe for seamless comfort. The heel cushion is made of dense terry loops making them extremely comfortable and shock-absorbent while remaining surprisingly thin. The arches of these socks have an elastic support knit-in which makes for a truly precision fit. The ribbed ankle support means that the socks will neither bunch nor slip down your legs.
