Socks for Military & Duty Boots
First on Foot™
Merino Wool naturally wicks moisture and helps regulate body temperature in all weather, keeping your soles dry when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold.
Promoting foot health is a sacred practice for soldiers, first responders, and those who rely on their feet. Namely, high-friction blister prevention – it’s how our socks earn rank.
Targeted mesh panels are strategically knit to enhance breathability, making Merino Wool the best at combating sweaty feet in boots.
Our Merino Wool tactical socks work next to skin to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, keeping your feet healthy and odor-free.
Our Tactical line is knit with fibers wholly grown, processed, and produced in the USA to meet Berry Amendment compliance. They’re the first – and best – choice for government and military use.
Choose by Weight
The best military socks for hot weather – period. Light, versatile, and breathable, our Lightweight Tactical socks are heavy on performance but soft on your feet for sweltering days in the desert or humid days in the jungle.
Tried and true for temperate weather, you’ll find our Midweight socks offer confidence year-round. For strenuous days in combat boots, police boots, and other duty boots, these foot-hugging Tactical socks are first on foot for a reason.
Knit to withstand the intense cold, our Heavyweight socks keep your feet warm in extreme conditions. Built for frigid days, these socks go the extra mile to protect your feet against the most punishing and severe weather.
Certain styles – including our T4021, T4033 and T4050 tactical socks – have received Safe to Fly Product Certification from the United States Air Force (USAF). This three-year certification confirms these socks meet all Flame Resistant (FR) and No Melt No Drip (NMND) requirements identified by the USAF. For firefighters and air force personnel, that means they can be worn as under-layers, or next-to-skin, beneath approved Flame-Resistant Combat and Utility Uniforms.
The magic of Merino Wool is that it’s naturally durable, moisture-wicking, and odor-resistant – aka better for your foot health. It’s nature’s most befitting gift for military personnel, plus it lasts forever – at least what we knit does. It’s flame-resistant, temperature regulating, and available in approved military-spec colors, including OCP sock colors. It’s a tactical fabric as tough as your drill sergeant, and that’s saying something.
Our socks are battle-tested in the rugged foothills of Vermont’s Green Mountains, so you know they’re built to last. True to their name, Darn Tough knits a longer lasting sock offering unrivaled durability in duty boots, including combat boots and firefighter boots. They’ll keep going as long as you do, and then some. Plus, they’re backed by our Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee. So, if they ever rip, tear, or lose their fit, we’ll replace them.
The best-fitting sock is one that keeps your feet active and engaged all year long. Darn Tough Tactical socks fit no matter the environment and naturally help maintain your first line of defense – your foot health. No matter where you’re stationed, our socks offer a performance fit that lasts forever. And because they fit so well, you’ll forget you’re wearing them.
Choose by Height
No Show Socks
The best tactical ankle socks for physical training (PT). Virtually undetectable, our low-profile No Shows help you stay under the radar.
No half measures. No logos. Just military-grade, Merino Wool Quarter height socks offering full ankle bone coverage.
Micro Crew Socks
If you’re in law enforcement, the Micro Crew makes a worthy partner. They’re the best socks to wear with a lower profile six-inch duty boot.
For military boot socks that fit 10-inch boots, our Boot height is the gold standard. They won’t pull rank, but they’ll stay pulled up and ready for when you need them.
Also known as the Jungle Sock, our Mid-Calf height makes bushwhacking in army boots bearable. And because it’s necessary.
Over-the-Calf and beyond the call of duty is where this sock lands. Proving that confidence coincides with comfort, and vice versa.
