Striking a balance between lightweight design
and reliable durability, the Darn Tough Men’s Heady Stripe Micro Crew Light Cushioned Sock
has a three quarter length and seamless construction that makes it ideal for hikers or backpackers.
Let’s take a closer look at its unique construction. The socks are a unique blend of materials.
You have got 48 percent Merino wool, 45 per-cent nylon and seven percent Lycra. That combination
gives you nice durability, nice stretch and basically just enough cushioning for hiking
or backpacking. So it is more breathable and less cushioned than some heavier socks which
gives this some real year round or all season versatility. Darn Tough has incorporated seamless construction
down low on the sock, places where you would be vulnerable otherwise to the build up of
hot spots and blisters, so really nice feature set there. As far as the leg is concerned,
you can see the ribbing here, so a little bit more supportiveness on the leg, also helps
to keep that sock in place. The socks are constructed by Darn Tough based
in Vermont and they are backed by Darn Tough’s almost unbelievable lifetime guarantee. If
you are not happy with the socks, if the socks break down on you, Darn Tough will take them
back and replace them. So pretty unbelievable claim there on Darn Tough, but we have seen
them stand behind it. In addition to all that functionality, the
Darn Tough Men’s Heady Stripe Micro Crew Light Cushion Sock also just looks great.
So you have got a bit of style going on here, got all that functionality that certainly
makes it work in the back country and then the backing of that lifetime guarantee.
