Work Sock Engineering
A. Unrivaled Durability
High-density knitting and a signature blend of Merino Wool, Nylon, and Lycra® are how we unconditionally guarantee these heavy duty socks for life.
B. Fits Like It Should
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.
D. True Seamless™ Toe
The feature no one feels, and that's the point.
Cushioned 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.
Our company is built on a foundation of an Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee — and it's legit. You can bet we measure twice. The durability of our socks is a source of personal pride, and equally a standard we set and therefore have to maintain. We own our Mill in Vermont, and that's how we do it. No one ever outsourced anything for quality, and neither do we. Indeed, some things you just have to do yourself if you want it done right.
"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.
