    Should be called Best Damn socks..I have a size 7.5 foot but go with the medium size. These socks are incredibly warm but best of all they last forever. Wash after wash, hike after hike, hunt after hunt these socks seem virtually indestructible..I own 3 pair and look forward to getting my entire sock drawer full by the end of 2017. Must buy if you love the outdoors!!

    no sock liners needed. These socks are great! I have narrow feet, two different feet sizes and I was very worried for my hiking trip, a lot of ups and downs, These socks were great. No issues at all. No blisters, kept my feet and ankles comfortable. Just because they say for men, don't be dissuaded ladies, they worked wonderfully for me!

    These are very sturdy, well-made socks. I did not know this brand before I ordered the socks for a trip where I was going to do a lot of hiking. Worked like a charm--I didn't get any blisters! I bought the men's small for my medium woman feet (size 8) and they fit fine. Also, I was pleasantly surprised that even though they are thick wool, they dried overnight on the hotel balcony. I won't travel without them now!

    I bought these for my 12 yr old to keep his feet warm while waiting for the bus. He wears them all the time. He wears a size 6 (in big kid sizes) and the size small fits perfectly.

    The socks seem well made, warm and just thick enough. They are not overly bulky or itchy.

    I plan on buying a few more pairs.

    These socks are probably the best thing that has ever happened to me. They are unbelievably warm and comfortable. Even when my whole body is cold, my feet art warm. They are perfectly thick and cushioned. Best of all, they have a lifetime warranty!

    Darn Tough is my new favorite brand. We live in Minnesota, it's cold. I have 2 drawers full of socks. Socks are a very big deal here ; ) Darn Tough is my new "go-to" brand. I've also accidentally nuked them in the clothes dryer, and they have not shrunk.

    Very durable, very comfortable. The fabric is a little thinner than I expected (not cheap, just not a fluffy sock) quite warm and the merino wool isn't scratchy

    great sock and will last a long time. somewhat small , but i was at the top end of the scale. next time i will get med.
