In Vermont, it’s sock weather for at least 8 months of the year. Socks are serious business. And wool socks are not overdoing things in the least.
About 10 years ago I was reintroduced to wool socks. These aren’t the thick, itchy heather gray wool socks of the past. They are soft, cozy, and available in a fantastic array of sizes, colors, and heights.
The first brand-who-shall-not-be-named I bought were cute and warm, as hoped. But they lacked seriously in durability. Luckily the company offered a lifetime guarantee, so I was able to return the worn pairs for replacements. Sadly, those didn’t last long either.
Enter Darn Tough.
I am always thrilled to support a local company. And their ‘unconditionally guaranteed for life’ warranty made the somewhat hefty price tag (~$20/pair) bearable. But you know what? I’ve been wearing my first couple pairs weekly, 8 months a year, for about 8 years And. They. Still. Haven’t. Worn. Out. When you make a product this durable, it’s easy to make such a sweet offer.
I now have a sufficient supply to last at least a week, so I’m not on the market. But I purchased most of my pairs from Socks Addict. They often have great sales, so be sure to sign up for their email list.
