Darn Tough

Chances are you’re not going to want to change socks after riding into the office, so you’d best pick the right pair for the range of your day’s activities. The socks seen here are made from a blend of 60-plus percent au natural Merino wool, plus Nylon and Lycra for added stretch—and each one comes with an unconditional satisfaction guarantee. The company’s uber-thin and lightweight Argyle Crew Light socks come in two patterns and can easily work with a business casual dress code, or even a suit if needed. Meanwhile, the Darn Tough’s women’s-specific Good Witch model delivers the same functional performance, but with considerably more fun. They’re great for commuters because wool wicks sweat, is anti-microbial and naturally regulates temperature—whether you’re motoring down the bike path before work or kicking back at the office later in the day. All Darn Tough socks are made in Vermont with latest-generation Italian knitting machines for an ultra-light yet extremely dense construction for durability, and all-but-undetectable toe seams, for comfort. There are plenty more patterns to pick from.
