I’ve got several pair of Darn Tough socks and love them, but the Lorpen merino socks I bought off of Camofire 10 years ago really surprised me, still going and comfortable.

Best sock system I found (for me anyway) is the Kenetrek Ultimate Liner worn under the Kenetrek Alaska wool socks.
The Alaska Socks have padding on the shin, heel, and toe making them really comfortable.

I wear the Darn Tough full cushion boot socks all year. I find my feet stay drier with the thick sock and feel better after a day of walking in my old worn out work boots. I bought them for winter but they worked so well I just wear them year round.

I’ve tried about every sock I can find and darn tough are by far the toughest and their warranty is great. But for the best fitting socks I think FITS is the best. FITS is about all I wear anymore.

Darn Tough work best for me, and I like that they have a range of cushion levels (seemingly more than other brands) so I could really dial them in for my boots. I run the thinner versions (Spur Boot Light) - they fit my insulated beartooths perfectly.

All I wear is the merino wool socks from Costco. At $12 for a 4-pack, they can't be beat and seem to be very durable, I rarely get a hole in any. I have about 5 packs in reserve and usually buy a pack every year.
Another vote for first lite and Darn tough. Kuiu are up there also

I've been running Fits, Farm to Feet and Smartwool.

I can't really identify much difference, but I am in wool socks daily, just don't wear cotton socks at all anymore.

I much prefer thermax liners vs coolmax whether warm or cold. High merino percent in cold weather and a thinner less merino in warm weather. I get all my socks on the cheap at the Wigwam outlet store. They make socks for many of the brand names.

After reading all the post I might have to try some Darn Tough socks, but I’ve had really good luck with the Smartwool socks I’ve owned.

I really like the socks from Patagonia but they seem to sell out very quickly.

Aron Snyder mentioned the farm to feet Damascus socks, I wore them in NM last year and they were amazing
