One of the trickiest things to get right is the crossover sock for weekend adventures. You don’t want your standard workaday sock, but you don’t always want a chunky hiking sock either. Darn Tough seem to have nailed it on this one. The Unstandard Stripe is a lightweight sock but with a performance fit, seamless design and a bit of comfy cushioning under the sole and just below the ankle. The fine-gauge knit has a good dose of merino in it for comfort and odour-resistance, and the bright stripe design gives the socks a dash of style. Rugged enough to tackle a trip into the great outdoors, casual enough to wear every day
When it comes to weather, Vermont sees it all. Unpredictable spring snowstorms, summer downpours, blustery falls, bitterly cold winters – you name it, this part of New England gets it. Heck, between late winter and early spring Vermont even has its own unique fifth season, when the dirt backroads turn into quagmires passable only in a truck. The locals call it ‘mud season’.
But all that makes Vermont the perfect testing ground for outdoor gear. And luckily Darn Tough have been turning out their premium all weather performance socks in the heart of the state for three generations and nearly 40 years. These are socks for everything from skiing and snowboarding to hiking, biking and running. So, however you choose to explore the great outdoors, these are guaranteed to be the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned.
