Tight-fitting socks can help ease muscle aches and eradicate foot pain when running. Even the slightest form of compression has immense benefits for runners who suffer from inflammation. So, depending on what distances you plan on racing this year, it might be good to find a tight-fitting sock.

The best socks for running are lightweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking. Darn Tough Running socks are made from Merino Wool and naturally prevent blisters so you can run farther for longer. Our performance fit ensures your socks never slip either, giving you confidence with every stride.

Darn Tough Running socks are strategically knit with durable Merino fibers. The strength of Merino Wool gives our socks added resilience and protects against ripping and tearing. Plus, what we knit is Unconditionally Guaranteed for Life, so if they do get a hole, we’ll replace them free of charge.

The thicker your socks, the more cushion and rebound you’ll have. The thinner they are, the more breathable and form-fitting they’ll be. At Darn Tough, we knit both. But it’s mostly up to you if you want extra protection with thicker socks or a next-to-skin sensation with thinner socks.

Shorter socks are less restrictive and keep your feet cool if you run hot. Longer socks are also breathable but offer greater ankle protection, adding extra cushioning around the Achilles. Darn Tough makes the best socks for each height, but it’s up to you, the runner, to decide which is best.
