About Darn Tough

Based in the United States, Darn Tough is a family-owned business making socks that are guaranteed for life (no, really). Comfortable, durable and versatile, Darn Tough is changing the game one sock at a time. Here you can learn why Darn Tough has that lifetime guarantee in place, and about the other things that make them so darn great.

Feel the Darn Tough difference

Darn Tough socks are made in Vermont, where the rugged mountains and harsh winters make for the perfect product testing grounds. It’s great to minimize how frequently you need to replace things, which is why making lasting socks is so vital to Darn Tough’s ethos. Through Darn Tough’s website you can send back any socks you manage to rip or tear, and they’ll replace ‘em — free of charge (yes, you read that right).

Giving back in a darn big way

In addition to sourcing sustainable materials like Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certified Merino wool and REPREVE® nylon made from pre-consumer industrial waste, Darn Tough prioritizes giving back to their local community. Their Knit to Give program helps fight food insecurity in Vermont, and they donate a percentage of their sales to preserving American hiking trails.
