Worlds Best Socks Will Last Forever – Darn Tough Socks review

Worlds Best Socks Will Last Forever – Darn Tough Socks review

Yes, this review is about socks. We haven’t lost our minds, but when we found a company that claims its socks will last a lifetime we had to investigate. This is the review of Darn Tough Socks. Do they live up to their claims?

The idea of an everlasting pair of socks sounds outrageous at first. Socks are one of those items that gets the most wear and tear.
To combat this the people of Darn Tough have reinforced the heel and toe areas to make sure they won’t wear out. And after several years on the market, turns out their approach works.

Darn Tough is located in Vermont and that’s where all their production also happens. In the age of cheap Asian sweatshop labour, this is refreshing to see. What’s even nicer is that the prices are very reasonable. An average pair is just around 15 USD.

They also use merino wool as the socks main component. This ensures a good and soft fit, odour control and helps keep your feet dry.
Merino is also known to be good choice for long hard hikes as it doesn’t cause any itching or blistering.

Does it really last forever

Since Darn Tough Socks haven’t been around forever, it’s hard to verify that claim. But after having owned several pairs for around a year it sure looks good so far. The overall consensus in the reviews agrees with this and people who have had problems can get their money back or a new pair.
A friend of mine who is also a fan had the socks for 5 years of in his words “extreme usage”. This included getting chewed by dogs daily. After 5 years they needed replacement and while he could have sent them back for a free pair, he didn’t. He was still very impressed and has ordered several more pairs since.

This is their guarantee from company website:

Our unconditional lifetime guarantee is simple and without strings or conditions. If our socks are not the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned, return them for another pair.

No strings. No conditions. For life.

Competition

While making socks isn’t rocket science, then making ones that last forever kind of is. This means it’s not easy to find someone who has similarly bold claims and a good track record.
Usually the biggest competitor to Darn Tough is considered to be Smartwool. They are also a US company who makes their socks using merino wool and targets mostly people with active lifestyle. Also their pricing is very reasonable.
However their products don’t seem to have the same kind or durability and we think Darn Tough’s also look better.
