As I type, I am wearing a pair of the lifestyle socks (the everyday version), courtesy of my new pals at Darn Tough. Proof:
Look at those cute stripes!
I also received the orange stripe running socks and the stone blue hiking socks, pictured below:
I've worn all three pairs, using the orange striped socks for a few chilly runs. I found my socks to have just the right amount of cushioning and I liked the way they wrapped my arches. I hoped that they wouldn't itch (wool usually makes me super-itchy) and they didn't. This was the case with other wool socks I recently tried as well so maybe my feet are just tough! Best of all, the socks kept my feet really warm on a recent run in 20-ish degree weather.
I also like the fact that Darn Tough is an independent, family-owned business. You can read all about them here.
A list of retailers is available on the Darn Tough web site. You can also buy them on Amazon.com.
