To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These socks are predominantly grey, not the greenish hue all over as they seem to appear on the website photo, so I’m a bit disappointed.Grey socks remind of school gym classes in the dim and distant past ! Hence my lower rating.
Comfort and quality great as usual from Darned Toughs. I think the Amazon photo needs changing to truly reflect the true colour ... i.e. in my opinion, drab. I’ll definitely pay attention to the colour the next time I buy Darned Toughs.and I’ll go for brighter colours.
I generally wear socks around the house without shoes, and I am notorious for getting holes in the toes and heels. I love these socks. I had a hard time justifying buying a pair of socks at this price, but the lifetime guarantee sold me. These socks are not soft and snuggly, they are thick, durable, and comfortable. The toes and heels are so thick, I really can't imagine wearing through them. I purchased 2 pairs and now I just want to wear those 2 pairs of socks all the time! I might cave and buy another pair, but I plan on trying to wait until the next time I wear a hole in one of my other pairs (which won't take long.)
Purchased for light hiking during bucket-list trip to Denali. Broke it in w new hiking boots (in August in Hawaii!) and in Denali sock was perfect: not heavy weight, didn't need washing till I got home (smell test, as suggested in website?) Will try to continue hiking at home and I think the sock will still be light enough where I wont have hot feet.
Bought these for my daughter after getting her new hiking boots and she had some old junky thick cotton socks that wadded up in the toe area and gave her a few blisters. Once she started wearing these, zero issues and she doesn't complain about her feet hurting anymore.
