Product Summary

The Darn Tough no-show ultra-lightweight running sock is available in both a cushioned and non-cushioned version depending on your preferences. Both socks are a blend of merino wool, nylon, and Lycra Spandex.

The socks have a high-performance fit that Darn Tough claims prevents slippage and bunching. Darn Tough also states that these socks will decrease foot fatigue because of added arch support.

The ultra-lightweight merino wool dries quickly and helps to move excess heat and moisture away from the feet. Darn Tough offers an unconditional lifetime guarantee. They will provide a replacement for anything within normal wear and tear. The exceptions are pet chewing, lost, or burned socks.

The Darn Tough No-Show Socks have mixed reviews. Many people thought they had a great fit and they were worth the money. Multiple people returned to purchase multiple pairs. Negative reviewers found the socks very tight and difficult to get on. Some buyers also had trouble with the socks sliding down.

Longtime Darn Tough customers did not like the No-Show socks as much as the Standard and Quarter socks. They found that the No-Show socks ran smaller than other Darn Tough socks they have purchased in the past.

      The Darn Tough No-Show socks are solid yet expensive running socks but not the most popular of Darn Tough’s line of socks. Many people preferred the Quarter and Standard socks.
