"I got these for my backpacking trip and they were baller!! My La Sportiva Approach shoes kept my feet from getting wet from the outside rain and my Darn Tough socks kept my feet dry from the inside!" says Seth


  • Men's micro crew socks average 8.5 in. from heel to cuff - expect them to show about 6 in. above a low hiking shoe or just above a standard hiking boot.
  • A performance fit means no slipping, no bunching, and no blisters for peak hiking comfort.
  • Merino Wool is at home on the trail, naturally moving moisture to keep feet fresh and dry in all weather.
  • Our all-season weight, midweight socks thermoregulate to wrap feet in steady comfort when temperatures change.
  • The “still” in Still Made in Vermont, USA is personal. We knit all our socks at our VT-based Mills - we can't imagine it any other way.
  • Unconditionally Guaranteed for Life - if these aren’t the longest-lasting socks you’ve ever owned, return them for another pair.
