Darn Tough says
This Micro Crew has earned a hallowed place in the hearts of many a through-hiker who demand more from a sock. Comfort, durability and fit that never rests.
Thru-Hikers logging hundreds of miles on the long trails of America have long coveted our hiking socks because they deliver the ultimate in comfort, durability and fit when failure is simply not an option. Their endorsement means a lot to us since creating socks that over-deliver in the most demanding trail conditions has always been at the core of our mission. So whether it’s Denali or just a day hike, with Darn Tough you’ll have the world’s best hiking sock under foot.
Darn Tough make super comfortable socks that have a comfortable seamless, fit and they have a reputation for great durability too. I love wearing mine and have found them to be the most comfortable socks for everything from walking to running and simple everyday wear. The Light Hiker Micro Crew Socks are no different.
All of the Darn Tough socks use a combination of Merino Wool, Nylon and Lycra Spandex. The amounts of each material vary according to what you’d use the sock for. This means that the socks are all good for all year round use, they are antimicrobial and odour resistant. However, with more merino you get more focus on breathability and comfort for a range of conditions whereas, with a higher amount of nylon the socks wick better and dry quicker.
There are also 9 levels of cushioning from ‘Ultra-Light’ race socks through to the super thick, padded ‘Extra Cushion’. Depending on what you need or want, it is definitely worth the time thinking about which sock will best suit the activities you will be wearing them for.
