Northfield, VT — Any infantry soldier knows from long, grueling, often too-personal experience that healthy, blister-free feet are mission critical. And when it comes to mission critical performance, there's only one brand of socks that the US Army has deemed perfect enough to be U.S Army Team Soldier Certified, and included in the brand-new, cutting edge FREE (Fire Resistant Environmental Ensemble) clothing system. Those socks are Darn Tough Vermont's Military Issue 14021 Merino Wool Boot Sock Cushion. In addition to one of their socks passing the Army's most rigorous tests and meeting their highest safety and quality standards, Darn Tough Vermont socks are also issued to units in the Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, and Army.

The durability, comfort and innovative technology that make these socks the next generation of Army issue is also why they are perfect for hunting, hiking, camping, running, biking and general day-to-day wear for people that put a beating on their feet. They are made with Merino wool that actively wicks away sweat and moisture to keep your feet dry and comfortable for days on end, even without washing. Ribbing around the ankle and generous elastic knit into the arch maintain a secure fit and prevent the socks from falling down in your boots, and the reinforced toes and heels make sure that that these socks live up to their name with serious lasting power. As the sign hanging proudly in Darn Tough's Northfield Vermont mill says: “Nobody ever outsourced ANYTHING for quality. Since 1978, still Made in VERMONT, USA.”

All of Darn Tough's tactical socks are available to military units at www.gsaadvantage.gov, or for individual purchase at www.adsinc.com/darntough. Their civilian all-weather performance socks, which are made with similar techniques to their tactical socks, are available in select retailers, or from online retailers at www.darntough.com.
