Darn Tough Micro Crew & OTC Extra Cushion Socks

Ready for the Extremes

Made for mountaineering and other cold-weather adventures, these Darn Tough over-the-calf socks will keep you comfortable come wind, rain, sleet, or snow. Each pair features a blend of fine-gauge merino wool for warmth, nylon for breathability and a quick drying time, and a bit of Lycra for that just-right stretch. The extra-heavy terry-loop construction protects your whole foot from the chill beyond, while the streamlined performance fit ensures you won’t have to contend with slipping, bunching, or blisters on the trails or slopes.

Note: This drop includes one pair of socks. At checkout, you’ll have your choice between Men’s style #1953 (base price) and Men's style #1954 (+ $1.50) in Smoke, and Women’s style #1955 (+ $1.50) in Midnight. Select sizes are available in Men’s S – XXL and Women’s S – L.

The Merino Difference

Merino wool doesn’t just keep you warm in cold weather—it also keeps you nice and cool in the summer months. Along with offering extra UV protection, it prevents overheating and clamminess by absorbing and releasing vapor. Plus, it’s naturally antibacterial and odor-resistant, so you can stretch an extra day (or two) out of your pair when needed.

About Darn Tough

The Cabots have been in the sock business for three generations, starting in 1978 in the Green Mountains of Northfield, Vermont with Cabot Hosiery Mills. Born a few decades later, Darn Tough maintains the family’s ethos: great-fitting, long-lasting socks, made right here in the US. All socks are knit on small-needle, fine-gauge machines in the original mill for high-quality, high-density stitching without the bulk. And Darn Tough is so confident you’ll love them, every pair comes with the company’s Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee.
