The Mirna Factor
Of course, we like that Mirna Valerio is a Vermonter. She also gives input into our running socks, which we like too. But we also love that Mirna doesn’t care what you think about her. She just smiles and keeps crushing miles in her favorite pair of socks (some of which she helped create). Ultra-runner, public speaker, mother, force of nature… just a few of her talents that had us all ears.
“Darn Tough’s running socks are incredible.” – Mirna
What keeps things warm and keeps things cool is not wildly different – like a thermos. Merino Wool fibers are naturally crimped. That tiny space, combined with an intense ability to absorb and release moisture, keep your feet at an ideal temp, and dry, regardless if you’re running in cold or hot weather.
“In the summertime it feels counterintuitive to want to wear wool socks, but since wool helps with thermoregulation, they actually keep your feet at a perfect temperature, even if they get wet!” – Mirna
Our socks excel at this. Even still, armed with warranty data from our LIFETIME GUARANTEE and runner input, we added reinforcement up the Achilles for extra durability. They’re the best socks for marathon runners and your ideal partner for Sunday long runs and long-distance ultras.
“They are extremely well made and last a long time. They are cute and they make your feet look CLUTCH. And they are made by my local Vermont sock family. What's not to love?” – Mirna
Fitting Results — No Blisters
For those who’ve heard the phrase Darn Tight, don’t confuse that with what we call a performance fit – a continual, unrelenting fit with arch support. Reduced sweat, proper temp, and a sleek fit are the equation for a good pair of anti-blister running socks without seams.
“They are technical wool, which is very important to guard against blisters, and to help with heat regulation and cooling. They are appropriately compressive where they need to be, and cushioned where they need to be.” – Mirna
