One thing that customers can agree on is that the Danish Endurance hiking socks are super comfortable. They are soft on your feet, giving you a stellar experience.

Unfortunately, customers have mentioned that they don't get the support they desired for the Danish Endurance Merino wool socks. There is some there, just not enough for their liking. Reviewers mentioned that the bottom of the sock just kind of hung there loosely and did nothing for support.

Materials

Danish Endurance uses a mixture of 33% Merino wool, 33% acrylic, 33% polyamide, and 1% elastane in the making of their wool hiking socks.

The Merino wool ensures that the hiking socks are soft and cozy, keeping you warm and toasty, even on the coldest of days. Don't let that fool you, though. They are perfect for your summer adventures thanks to the integrated mesh vents that allow air to flow through.

Acrylic is a super strong man-made fiber that helps give the Danish Endurance hiking socks a decent amount of warmth and softness, while still remaining lightweight, so you don't have to wear heavy and thick socks. Additionally, the use of this material helps keep the fun colors bright and more brilliant than of the other, more natural fibers.

The use of polyamine, also known as nylon, also helps keep the socks strong and durable. It's blended with the other fibers of the Danish Endurance to give it a bit of stretch and added durability. The use of elastane also aids in the stretch of the socks.

Breathability

When you're wearing anything, you want to try to make sure that it is well-ventilated. Airflow to your skin is essential in keeping you cool and comfortable. You don't want to feel like you're overheating from the bottom up. If your feet aren't comfortable, then you aren't satisfied.

The good news is that the Danish Endurance hiking socks offer a decent amount of breathability. There are strategically placed vents and zones made of mesh to allow air flow.

This means that you can stay cool in the summer heat and when you're active, but at the same time stay warm and toasty in the winter months.

Style

The Danish Endurance wool socks have a great style. They come in some fun colors that customers love. No, most people aren't going to see your socks, as they'll be in your shoes, but it's nice to know what you're wearing underneath it all. It gives people a little extra pop while they're heading out for adventures.

You can purchase the socks in packs of three or as a single pair. If you are buying them in packs your options are three forest green; three light grey; three oak brown; or one each of brown, red, and green. The single pair options are forest green, oak brown, wine red, or yellow. On every pair, you will find the Danish flag and their logo. Regardless of what option you choose, at least you know that you'll look great wearing them.

The Danish Endurance Merino wool hiking socks are crew cut, meaning that they go to mid-thigh. This is ideal, especially for those pairing them with hiking boots, or any other high topped shoes.

The socks feature a seamless toe design to give you a little extra comfort while you're out and about. There is a spot for ankle flex built in, giving you unrestricted movement. The Danish Endurance features high density knit materials with ribbed cuffs to keep your socks pulled up and fitting snugly. Additionally, as mentioned above, the socks feature a cushioned footbed.

Fit

It's crucial that you find a pair of socks that will fit your feet perfectly. You don't want to walk around all day in an ill-fitting pair of socks, causing you discomfort. They should be snug enough to give you support. You also want to find a pair that will stay in place, and not slide down into your shoes while you're walking. On the other side of that, you don't want them to be too tight, cutting into your skin, causing discomfort and irritation.

Thankfully for many customers, the Danish Endurance wool socks fit nicely, giving them comfortable throughout their adventures. They have a little stretch thanks to the elastane and polyamide (nylon), so they give you a snug fit that will stay put.

The Danish Endurance wool socks are unisex, so they're designed to fit anyone. There are a couple of sizes to choose from so you can find a pair that will give you the best fit.

Your options are for shoe sizes: US women's 5-7 and US men's 3.5-6; US women's 8-10 and US men's 6.5-8.5; or US women's 11-13 and US men's 9.5-12.5. The great news is that these socks are also available for children, allowing for shoe sizes between 13-3.

Durability

When spending money on a pair of socks, you want to make sure that they're going to survive your adventures. The last thing you want to deal with is your toes top pop through them or have your heels run through, leaving them exposed.

For the most part, customers found the Danish Endurance wool socks to be durable. They stated that they had problems with longevity and were able to keep them for quite a while.

On the other hand, there were a plethora of customers who had different experiences. There were a relatively large amount of reviewers who stated the Danish Endurance socks developed holes after only a couple of weeks, wearing them just a few times.

Value

The Danish Endurance wool socks are expensive. Whether buying them as a single pair or purchasing them in a pack of three, you are going to be spending decent money for them.

Since a lot of consumers had problems with the socks developing holes after a couple of wears, they stated that they aren't entirely worth the cost. This isn't a problem that everyone encountered, but it is worth noting.

Care

When wearing socks for your active lifestyle, you want to make sure that you're keeping them clean. If you don't wash them regularly, after every use, you are going to run the risk of them smelling bad. This will, in turn, cause your shoes and feet to sink, and nobody wants a pair of stinky socks.

There are special wash instructions for the Danish Endurance Merino wool socks, so you'll want to separate them from the rest of your laundry. They recommend that you wash them on 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius), on the wool cycle. Additionally, you are going to want to let the air dry, as it isn't recommended that you tumble dry them. If you aren't following these directions, then you run the risk of decreasing the lifespan.

Bottom Line

If you are an outdoor enthusiast and like to hit the trails and head out for adventures the Danish Endurance Merino wool socks are an excellent choice for you. They are perfect for a plethora of activities, including hiking, biking, running, or skiing. No matter the weather, regardless of the activity, these are the perfect companion.

Unfortunately, customers had some problems with the durability of the socks, stating that they developed holes quicker than they would have liked. Combine the premature wear and tear with the high price tag, and they might not be quite worth the cost. That said, not all customers have experienced this and love the socks, saying they are worth it and would even recommend them.

The high comfort level makes them a great pair of socks. The Danish Endurance has a padded footbed for decent underfoot cushioning. Additionally, they have well-placed vents to allow breathability so you can stay cool in the summer while the wool keeps you warm in the winter.

They truly are a versatile pair of socks. If you can get past the holey nature of the Danish Endurance wool socks, they are going to be an excellent option for your next outdoor excursion.
