Now, in my opinion, these are the best socks on the planet. My nephew, John, told me about them several years ago. We kind of go back-and-forth sharing things that we've discovered with each other. This is one of his discoveries.
These socks are made in the U.S. and have a lifetime guarantee. The company is in Vermont and it's called Darn Tough. And they mean it with their guarantee. Socks a little worn out after 10 years? Send them back and they'll send you a new pair. For free. How cool is that? No, this isn't an invitation to be a dick and just use the guarantee to your advantage. It speaks highly of a company that is proud of their product and believes in it.
Of course, the picture only shows one style and one color of a bike sock that's sold by Darn Tough. Check out their website for more styles, colors, and varieties of socks. I have worn my bicycling socks for over four years and they're still in great shape. The ones that I have are wool with nylon and Lycra in it for shape. I wear them year-round. They keep my feet cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In my opinion, wool is the best material for socks, cycling shorts, and cycling jerseys. It's an all year material and lasts a very long time.
My take on them? 5 Stars.
Okay. Time to head out of here and close with a tune. Clint Black singing a fav of mine, A Better
