    I only bought one pair to see how they stacked up to the Carhartt and People socks I purchased. I would rate these ever so slightly higher, but for about the same price you get 4 or 6 pairs of the other brands . I can't speak for durability, as I've only used all 3 brands for about two or three months...but I mean if they do honor the lifetime guarantee you could make an argument for buying these. If they were $15 a pair I'd honestly feel little better about buying them, but's that's a personal decision you'll have to make. I'm also not sure about shipping and waiting for socks to come back, or replacements...kind of seems like a pain in the neck to me just for socks.

    These are incredibly well made really comfortable socks. I was a bit shocked at the price at first but after wearing these for a while it is well worth it and I plan on getting more. I live in Texas and it tends to get hot here for 13 months out of the year. These socks keep my feet cooler and dryer than any other kind I have tried. You wouldn't think that since they are made of wool. You can buy these with confidence because if you tear them up they have a lifetime warranty. Find a special drawer to keep these in. Do not let them associate with peasant socks.

    Bought for husband. He has the toughest feet I have ever seen. He got es through socks every 3 months. He was sooooo happy with these feel great, great cushion and support. He does not like the price so he asked me not to buy anymore. We live on a farm so he is on his feel everyday all day.
    I loved the fact he noticed so that speaks volumes

    Bought these as a gift. These felt poor quality so I had my wife pick up a pair in store, and we compared them. Although these look like and are packaged like DT socks, they're not the same. The fabric weight was different in places. In some spots the real ones have a different thickness/weave but these ones just changed the color to mimic that change. By the time we realized, we thought it was too late to return.

    Save your money and buy the real thing in store.

    These are awesome socks!

    I use them around the house, year round and on my hiking trips. If the weather is 85* or 25*, these socks are comfortable!

    I've had one pair of these get a hole (after a year and a half of use) and I sent the pair back to Darn Tough, a week later I had a brand new pair. No questions asked.

    Can't beat the unconditional lifetime warranty and great performance of these socks!

    Best wearing socks I've ever had. I'm in my boots at work 11-16 hrs a day, surrounded by water. These things dry out so well you forget your feet were ever wet. They wick off sweat better than any other sock I've tried. They're warm enough in the cold (I've tried them down to 20 degrees) and are working great up to 90 degrees so far.

    American made, and you can't beat the warranty either!

    Highly recommended.

    11-22-2014 UPDATED REVIEW!!! I've worn (in rotation) 3 pairs of these socks every day for 7-8 months now, usually about 15-16 hrs a day. I cannot believe how well these things have held up. They are simply awesome. You basically don't notice them because they simply do nothing wrong. My feet have stayed warm in the cold, and dry at all times. Really comfortable and show no signs of wear at all. By far the best socks I've ever owned. As long as they make these socks I'm a customer for life!!!

    I like these. I use my 1 pair very frequently and they get plenty of washes for about the 6 months I've had them. I do see that my Darn Tough Socks are fraying and losing threads or whatever but overall I would say they are 95% what they started as. Still warm and comfy. I'm fine with that. I bought another for my nephew who is poor and embarrasses my family by breaking everything he touches with his hands AND/OR feet. He has had his pair for about 2 months now and hasn't mentioned that they are falling apart or anything. I'll sneak into his apartment and look at his socks if enough people message me to do so.

    These are soft all the way through with added cushion in the toe and heel. Overall a great product, but one I wouldn't buy more of.

    These slide down my calf's like rest and I just have to come to the realization that I can only wear crew length socks that go to under my calves and not above or over as all socks that claim to stay put will eventually be bunched up just above my boots.

    Super warm though.

    It feels great. I'm still not sure if it's worth the high price, but it's certainly the best quality sock I've ever used.

    Trop petit et il sont trop mince je m'attendais à plus pour le prix

    these arrived ahead of sched, always a quality product and priced accordingly, you get what you pay for

    Best socks ever!

    They're great.

    Received something that is really not as described.

    These are the best socks I have ever owned well worth buying.

    Very good sock, super comfortable. Love them. So expensive, I hesitate to wear them... but I can't wear cotton.
