Socks that Work
Long days on your feet are long days in socks. Designed to fit your boots and your schedule, we know these are the best socks for work.
High-density knitting and a signature blend of Merino Wool, Nylon, and Lycra® are how we unconditionally guarantee these heavy duty socks for life.
Support around the arch alleviates foot fatigue, no slouching overall alleviates anger.
Merino Wool is breathable and naturally regulates temperature, to which we added mesh panels that keep ventilation flowing.
The feature no one feels, and that's the point.
Terry loop cushion underfoot wraps around the toes for added comfort in steel-toed boots, leaving the top of the foot lighter and airy on these steel toe work socks.
All our cushioned Work socks feature Terry loop cushion underfoot, while select styles also use terry loops in the leg of the sock for added boot comfort.
Terry loops knit throughout the entire Work sock are what provide a full cushion of comfort and protection in these warm socks for work.
Like most things we do, how socks for work boots need to differ can start with height, so we knit different heights to cover various boot types and work environments. The Boot Sock height is the most popular when fit with an 8-inch work boot found in all kinds of industrial sites. Over-the-Calf sock styles cover a range of rubber farm boots, and some just like that added coverage up the leg. In the opposite direction, the Micro Crew and 1/4 Socks are becoming more popular with lighter, steel-toed work shoes you might wear in the warehouse.
"Best socks I've had for work. I wear them daily with my steel toe boots for work where I walk an average of 10 miles a day. They are comfortable and last a long time." — Andrew G.
Leather or rubber boots, freezing temps or maddening rooftop heat, this is where Merino Wool socks are downright a necessity. Wool has a natural crimp in the fiber that creates pockets of insulation. That also lets excessive heat vent out, and with it, the moisture it's been absorbing off your feet. That same moisture that eventually makes your sweaty feet smell. Dry, moderate feet that don't smell — that's what our socks do.
“Like baby blankets for your feet. Temperature control is great as I wear these in the winter, summer, and every season in between. I wear steel toe boots 14 hours a day, 5 days a week, and these socks are unfazed. These are the only socks I wear now.” — Matt B.
Honestly, we forgot to ask what socks this guy was wearing when expanding our manufacturing space, because the sparks were so cool to watch.
"Love the lifetime warranty. Gotta say, the socks are tough, reliable, and most of all comfortable. I'm a firefighter and wear these strictly at work. Feet feel fantastic and stay dry all day." — Anthony R.
Knitting the most comfortable, durable, best fitting socks you'll ever own has been our mission since we started the Darn Tough Vermont brand of socks from our family-owned Mill in 2004. The durability gets a lot of notoriety when people talk about our unconditional guarantee, but the fit and comfort of our socks and their ability to maintain that over the course of years, and hundreds of wash cycles, should not be overlooked.
“Life changing socks. No stink, no bunch, dry feet, no hot spots, can find no fault in these socks. At the fire station, on the job, and in the saddle, they work as hard as I do.” – Mark B.
