We Can't Make This Stuff Up

  • “Yesterday while riding my bike to work, i had mechanical trouble with my bike. I was still 5 miles from work, but i need to get there. I was wearing bicycle shoes at the time, and I cannot run in those. So i took them off and ran in a pair of darn tough socks. I ran 5 miles from Cutler Corner in Barre Town, VT to City Place in Barre. To my utter amazement, those socks are still in tack. Happy Friday.”

  • “Just wanted you all to know at Darn Tough that you make the best socks I have ever worn. I am on my feet all night bartending and your socks never let me down. I made the official switch from !@#$%^&*(! to Darn tough forever! Thank you for designing such a high quality, built to last product! No more blowouts in the toe for me! I wear your socks to work, on my days off, and hiking through the woods and even the canyons of AZ—Thank You!”
  • “I got tired several years ago from relatives and in-laws purchasing crap I don't need and giving it to me for Christmas. I tried telling them to contribute to a charity of their choice...Didn't work, much drama... Finally, I thought (in an ironic twist) I would ask for socks. But, why not expensive socks, thought I? Well, the jokes on me. These socks, (if socks can be called blissful), are freakin' blissful! I love these socks!”

  • “I work in the construction field where I’m on my feet for most of the day, which in turn is very demanding on my clothing. I picked up up a dozen or so pairs of the Darn Tough Light Hiker and Boot Sock Cushion and immediately found the socks extremely comfortable. I wanted to see how well the socks would hold up and have been very happy with the overall fit and feel after numerous washing... Thanks for a great American Made Product!”
  • “I am an electrical lineman and having comfortable footwear is essential to do my job. I have tried all kinds of wool socks and because of cost yours were last, regretfully! I now have four pairs and I wear them almost exclusively. They are the most comfortable socks I've ever worn, even in the Georgia summer heat. Thanks again for this fine American product!”
  • “I am writing because I have been so impressed with your sock, I choose not to wear any other socks again. The price was steep for me but I needed good socks while working on a wild land fire crew. We would be out for weeks at a time and when it comes to my feet I was willing to pay extra… Well, I have had the socks now for about four years and wear them every day rotating about 7 pairs. I have yet to get a hole and they still breath and are very comfortable.”
  • “Last weekend, I fell through the ice on the shoreline of Lake Michigan and had to limp into Chicago as 30 mph wind chills froze my pants solid. At serious risk of frostbite, I busted into the nearest coffee shop and changed and dried off. The skin on my legs was numb and red - but my feet were perfectly fine. Darn Tough socks had insulated them so well. I just wanted to say thank you! Without your socks, I might have less toes.”
  • “I am a Dairy Farmer in WI and have tried every type of sock anyone has ever told me would keep my feet warm, to no success. I have never found that sock till now, Darn Tough, socks I will never be without again. Thank you for the warm feet I have been looking to find for the last 30 years.”
  • “I used to think the best thing about Vermont was Bernie Sanders. But now I have your John Henry Boot socks. My feet have not felt this good since I was twenty. The fifty years since then have been a long long time. Please thank everyone at Darn Tough for me. What you make, makes the world a better place for everyone with feet. I love your socks... Bernie is a national treasure, but he never made my feet feel like this.”
  • “I have drunk the cool-aid and there is no coming back. Never again shall anything but pure merino wool assembled by the craftsmen/women of Darn Tough grace my feet. I was a missionary for my church for two years in South America. On a typical day I would spend 9-12 hours on my feet walking. Our feet would take a beating and I developed all sorts of foot funk (literally was diagnosed with three separate foot diseases). After that experience, I was on a quest to find a high-performance sock that would keep my dogs from barking. Through an act of divine intervention, I stumbled upon Darn Tough. I bought two pairs of their #1466 socks and my life has never been the same. It is now the only sock I wear, whether at work, hiking in the woods, skiing the back country, or traveling abroad. On top of making the best sock I've ever worn; they also have some of the best customer service ever. My mission now is to spread the good word of these socks and let others partake in the joy I now have.”
