Darn Tough says:
When it comes to logging long miles, your views are always changing, but that doesn't mean your socks should. The natural fibers of the lightweight Kaleidoscope micro crew keep your feet dry, cool and stink-free, so you can focus on hauling ass, not hauling gear.

Darn Tough make super comfortable socks that have a comfortable seamless, fit and they have a reputation for great durability too. I love wearing mine and have found them to be the most comfortable socks for everything from walking to running and simple everyday wear.
All of the Darn Tough socks use a combination of Merino Wool, Nylon and Lycra Spandex. The amounts of each material vary according to what you’d use the sock for. This means that the socks are all good for all year round use, they are antimicrobial and odour resistant. However, with more merino you get more focus on breathability and comfort for a range of conditions whereas, with a higher amount of nylon the socks wick better and dry quicker.
There are also 9 levels of cushioning from ‘Ultra-Light’ race socks through to the super thick, padded ‘Extra Cushion’. Depending on what you need or want, it is definitely worth the time thinking about which sock will best suit the activities you will be wearing them for.
