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
Arch support 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
Steel Toe Cushion
Terry loop cushion underfoot wraps around the toes for added comfort, leaving the top of the foot lighter and airy on the Steely collection, the best socks for steel toe boots.
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.
Your work boots are only as good as the socks you wear with them. Our socks are designed and tested in warehouses and can be found beneath rubber boots at sea. There are loggers, lineworkers, and farmers benefiting from comfortable, dry feet thanks to our socks for work boots. At Darn Tough, we knit these socks for people like you — and the Salmon Sisters — because we value fresh feet like you do hard work. You won't find a more comfortable, breathable, moisture-wicking sock that actually works.
"Merino Wool is a real solution for people who have boots on all day. It's the right material in all the right places, but mostly you'll forget you're wearing them. They're just meant to be on and easy to wear in every boot." — Claire N.
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 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.
