Experienced travelers know that the key to a pleasant journey is comfortable footwear.
When we were in Vermont last fall, I discovered some great Merino wool socks at a local outfitter — Sam’s in Brattleboro.
Sam’s occupies at least three buildings in downtown Brattleboro, across the street from the Latchis Hotel where we stayed.
It is one of those stores with an endless selection of hats, gloves, coats, boots, sweaters, and of course socks.
The socks — Darn Tough Vermont — are manufactured in the Green Mountain State.
I bought a couple of pairs, and now I am a convert.
There are a variety of styles for men, women, and children: socks for hiking; socks for skiing; socks for running; and socks for everyday wear.
The socks come in different weights, sizes, lengths, and colors, and they all have an unconditional lifetime guarantee.
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.
These socks are expensive, but sometimes you can find bargains on last year’s styles. I wear mine around the house, for walking the dog, and when I know I’ll have to take my shoes off at airport security.
You can purchase the Darn Tough socks directly from the manufacturer.
They are also available from outfitters like REI or on Amazon.com.
We found a huge display of Darn Tough Vermont socks at the Vermont Country Store in Rockingham. This is a really fun store that sells all kinds of old fashioned candies, toiletries, toys, and everything else made in Vermont, from cheese to maple sugar candies, to rugged clothing. Be sure to check out the upstairs loft for discounted merchandise!
