About Darn Tough Socks

Born and made in Vermont, Darn Tough Socks are built to last a lifetime. Premium materials including high-quality merino wool create a sock that outlasts even the toughest toenails, insoles, and hikes.
This family-owned and American-made brand calls the unofficial “sock capital of the world” its home and has continued to last through decades of new socks entering and exiting the market. Darn Tough Socks is solely a sock manufacturer, creating a niche opportunity to perfect their product and outperform competitors.
They make one thing: socks. They make it well, and they make a variety of them. From running to hiking and winter to summer, there’s a sock for every activity and lifestyle. Classic boot socks are the way to go to make sure your feet last your hike, while a low profile... and thinner anklet may be perfect for your new running shoes.

Socks That Last
