I bought  1 pair of Darn Tough ( merino) that lasted the whole PCT.  I
watched my hiking partners put holes in Smartwools in 1 week.  I like the
micro crew cushion models, they are not too thick and shed moisture well.
When I came back, I washed them ( twice) and sent them back to the company,
and they sent me a brand new pair that were the exact same color and model
that I will use them this year on the CDT and hope for and etc. experience.

Darn Tough socks.  I used the cushion ones...  They last way way longer than
any other brand I've used.

Down to basics.  My hiking boots are staying home.  I will be hiking in NB
trail shoes.  Just wondering if there is any advice on the best type of
socks to wear with trail shoes.


I have always used Smartwool medium trekking socks.  I am thinking these
socks are too heavy for trail shoes.  


long distance hikers- what has worked best for you.
