Men's Hiking Socks

The original men’s hiking socks with a lifetime guarantee. Thru hikers trust their feet with our Merino Wool socks because we knit a durable sock that performs. 

Our first hike sock, the 1466 Hiker micro crew sock is a trail legend – some say they’re the best hiking socks for men. We’ve carried that same durability into our entire line of men’s wool hiking socks, which now includes a range of weights and heights for every hiker. Our hiking boot socks, like the 1403 Hiker, pair great with tall hiking boots or backpacking boots. If you prefer low cut hiking socks for hiking shoes or trail runners, we knit quarter crew and no show hike socks perfect for day hikes and warm weather hiking.

Merino Wool socks are the best for hiking. Merino’s natural ability to wick moisture and prevent blistering make it one of the most reliable materials to knit socks with. And when spun together with Nylon and Lycra, it creates the most durable, best fitting hiking sock you’ll ever wear.

Hiking socks shouldn’t be loose but instead fit your feet so well you forget you’re wearing them. At Darn Tough, we guarantee our Merino Wool hiking socks to be the best fitting socks you’ll ever wear. That means no slipping or bunching, resulting in a performance fit that feels like a second skin.

Darn Tough hiking socks are Unconditionally Guaranteed for Life – if they’re not the longest-lasting hiking sock you’ve ever owned, you can return them for another pair – meaning they last a lifetime. They’re made from durable Merino Wool, nature’s most befitting gift for active sock wearers.

Choose hiking socks based on your activity and weather conditions. You might opt for a lighter, thinner sock for shorter hikes in the summer, while, for more extreme hiking conditions, a heavier, thicker sock increases durability and warmth. Darn Tough knits both thick and thin hiking socks.

The short answer is, yes. At Darn Tough, our men’s hiking socks can be worn by women. The difference therein lies with comfort and fit – men’s socks are generally larger and sit higher on the leg than women’s styles. But women with larger feet or longer legs might find they fit better.
