Nothing lasts forever. Nothing, that is, except the Darn Tough Hiker Boot Sock Cushion. The winner of a 2018 Editors’ Choice Gold Award kept our testers’ feet happy for hundreds of soggy miles, and they didn’t wear out in the usual places. “They kept coming out of the wash ready to go again,” says Deputy Editor Casey Lyons. The merino wool naturally fights odor, and if for some reason they do bite the dust, Darn Tough’s lifetime guarantee has you covered. Get the women’s version for $19 and the men’s version for $20 (both 20 percent off) on backcountry.com this week, and see how far they take you.
