My family thought I was insane spending what I did on Darn Tough socks.
Until they wore them.
They all put them on their xmas lists now.

As someone who golfs where it rains like 200 days a year, I’ll give a +1 for wool socks. Even the Kirkland wool blend from Costco work fine. I do have one pair of smart wool and they’re amazing.

Never worn "Darn Tough" but "Fit" has been so much more durable than "Smart Wool". I will have to try Darn Tough out.

My local boot store also carries Fit, so it is easy to go make an impulse buy.

Another vote for smartwool socks. I will also have to take a look see at Darn Tough and Fit socks. Get teh moisture away from the foot.

After reading about the brand "Darn Tough" on DGCR I tried a pair, then picked up a couple more , and a couple more and now I couldn't tell you the last time ( I would bet at least 4 years) I wore socks that were not Darn Tough".

All my boots for disc golf have GorTex and if it is going to be positively wet, I might go with GorTex socks for extra protection.

The best solution I have found is an extra pair of shoes and socks. Just get wet, don't worry about it, have a dry pair ready to go for halftime.

But yeah, synthetic socks all day

Bread bags work well as waterproof socks...

I got a pair of Randy Sun Water proof sock for this past Christmas but only wore them 5 or 6 times. During cold weather they have worked out great - playing golf in the snow; hanging out at Cincinnati Bengals games and this past Ace Race were it was high 50's and raining the only part of me dry was my feet.

I will be trying the socks under them as stated previously. But worry about 2 pairs of socks and waterproof shoes getting hot

I would recommend the socks but I just ordered some Darn Tough based on the above too.

I think everyone is a little different - I have a buddy who wears a coat to play while I am in shorts and tall warm socks. You have to find out what works for you

i have used Seal Skinz for years and years and they have gotten much more comfortable and durable over that time. Never crossed my mind to wear them without another pair of socks underneath though.
