What are the Running 1/4 Sock Light Cushions?

The Darn Tough Quarter Sock Light Cushion is a lightweight performance running sock with just the perfect amount of cushioning under the foot. We have been using these socks for a while now and I have to say that they are the best socks I have ever used in over 30 years.

Despite the slightly cheesy name these socks are amazing!  What makes the Darn Tough socks so different and so durable is the way they are constructed.  Every sock is made with an incredibly high loop stitch count which produces more cushioned loops per square inch than any other sock.  Not only does this provide supreme cushioning, but because the loops are so densely packed they cannot flatten and shear under use.  This is how Darn Tough has managed to offer a lifetime guarantee on every sock which states:

“If our socks are not the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned, return them for another pair, or your money back. No strings. No conditions. For life.”

What are they made of?

These sublime socks are made from a mixture of 45% Merino wool, 51% Nylon and 4% Lycra.  The fine gauge knitting makes this sock a true work horse that is supremely comfortable, breathable and fast drying.  Merino wool has a natural ability to repel bacteria, so you can wear these socks for days before you need to wash them.  This all-weather sock stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

How cushioned are they?

These socks have a light amount of cushioning. The top of the sock is un-cushioned to provide better ventilation whilst the heel and the base of the foot have a thin layer of cushioning for comfort - making them equally good for cycling, Nordic walking and other fast paced activities. 

What are the features?

The sock has a smooth performance fit to reduce slipping, bunching and blistering and they have a low ankle.  Comfort is further enhanced by the True Seamless construction which does away with bulky stitched seams and increases comfort.

    Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

    Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
