Light hiking socks with go-faster stripes

There’s often not much flair about hiking socks. Normally available in joyless block colours, they tend to emphasise function over form, which is why it’s good to see Darn Tough turning out some livelier designs. With a colourful striped cuff, these Kelsos have a nice 80s vibe – the sort of thing you can imagine the kids off Stranger Things wearing on a monster hunt. They’re still well-cushioned for multi-day hikes, and come with Darn Tough’s lifetime guarantee. The Kelsos are cut to what the brand calls ‘micro crew’ length, which is just a smidge shorter than your average hiking sock. They’ll come just above the height of a standard hiking boot, but they also look great with lighter trail shoes or trainers

    • Ethically Sourced Materials - Darn Tough source their Merino Wool from America and around the globe. They work closely with their suppliers to ensure that Darn Tough Vermont receives only sustainably sourced Merino Wool from sheep that are not exposed to the practice of mulesing.
    • Sustainability Through Longevity: Darn Tough socks are covered by an unconditional lifetime guarantee. If their socks are not the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned, return them for another pair. It's that simple.
  • 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.

They actually support my arch which is awesome and they keep my feet warm.
