UPDATE: Our two winners are Kevin (men’s socks) and Ginger (women’s socks). Congrats and watch for next week’s giveaway!
Remember when socks as a gift were something relegated to stocking stuffer status? You’d blurt out a ‘ThanksMomandDad’ and toss ‘em into the gift pile, moving on to bigger quarry? Well, you’re older and wiser now, and socks are too.
Darn Tough makes socks they way they name ‘em. Sure, they employ top-notch materials like merino wool and Coolmax technology that wick away moisture, but they then use high-density knitting to construct socks that last years. We reviewed their Micro-Crew socks four years ago, and those pairs are still going strong, and absolutely still among our most comfy. Oh, and that ‘high-density knitting’ thing? No tech-talk mumbo jumbo there. The thread count in Darn Tough socks isn’t just higher than competitive brands… the difference is a visible-to-the-naked-eye one. But we’ll speak no more of nakedness here; especially not of naked feet.
So we’re giving away a Men’s pair of Micro Crew merino wool socks, as well as a Women’s pair of Micro Crew hikers made with Coolmax. Both are ideal for hiking and trekking, but you’ll end up wearing them as often as possible. And don’t forget, unless our math is bad, all this would mean TWO WINNERS this week.
How to enter for your chance to win.
It’s pretty easy. Head over to Darn Tough’s website and check out some of their other socks that would make good gifts; they have products designed for skiing and riding, hunting & fishing, etc.
