Carhartt Socks for Women Review

If you are familiar with the Carhartt brand, there is a good chance you think only of men's clothing. Or more specifically, men's coveralls, coats, and hats. I depend on the Carhartt brand and I have two pairs of their wonderful women's Carhartt wool blend socks. As I was browsing online for a few more pairs, I realized that I should share my Carhartt women's socks experience with you. I paused my shopping in order to review these warm, durable, and comfortable socks. 


Warm and Thick Women's Socks by Carhartt


I have to start by stating, I really hate wearing socks and shoes. Period.  When I do wear shoes, boots, or socks, they must fit well, be comfortable, and serve a purpose. If I could live my life barefoot, I would. Unfortunately, I must wear shoes and socks.

Last year, I needed some suitable socks for camping and hiking at The Shack during cold weather.  I chose two pair of Carhartt socks and couldn't be more pleased.  I am so pleased with the socks that I was browsing with the plan to order another couple of pair to keep here at the apartment.  

These are a few of the many reasons I recommend these Carhartt socks
  • keeps my feet warm but not sweaty
  • durable
  • the acrylic/polyester/nylon/wool/spandex blend (probably responsible for the two items above)
  • built-in arch support
  • heels that stay in place
  • the style creates a good fit and a sock that doesn't slide around my foot
  • top of the sock stays in place

There are few things I hate more than socks that slide around your foot, slide down your calf, and bunch up under your arch.  So uncomfortable and annoying!  But these Carhartt socks stayed in place whether I was using them as "slippers" while in The Shack or as warm socks under my rubber boots or hiking boots.  Those sewn "ribs" at the arch hug my foot and are so very comfortable.

Unfortunately, the exact pairs (the pink ones) that I purchased are currently out-of-stock and seem to be difficult to find.

The good news is that very similar pairs are still offered and are easy to find.  In fact, it seems the only difference is that the blends are ever-so-slightly different.  These purple "hiker crew" socks have similar heels, toes, and arch support. Not sold on the color purple? Don't worry, there are several other colors to choose from.

I will be ordering a couple pairs of these textured crew socks with confidence that I will love the new socks just as much as I do my pairs that are waiting for me up at my place in the woods. I like these as they are a bit higher on the calf. Slightly more coverage as I am tromping around in snow or outside in cold weather.

If you are in need of soft and comfortable socks, be sure to read our Barbara's article about the World's Softest Socks. In her review, she describes why her soft socks and the absence of bulky seams is her choice. 

If you are unfamiliar with the Carhartt brand, I encourage you to take a peek at their official site. For as long as I can remember, the men in my life have depended on the durability and quality of their coveralls and coats. I find that their sweatshirts, hats, and socks are always a good choice and meet my own cold weather needs.

  1. I wish I were not allergic to wool and these socks would be so perfect. Will check to see if they have other socks without wool for people like me. It is such a pain to be allergic to wool!

  2. The fact that these socks will not 'slide down and bunch up' is a very important consideration to me when buying socks. They HAVE to fit well and stay in place! Thanks so much for letting me know about these Carhartt socks, Dawn Rae.

  3. I'm certainly familiar with the Carhartt name, but I had no idea they made socks for women. These look like some great choices, especially right now as the weather has turned cold again and I never seem to be satisfied with the socks in my drawer. Appreciate the personal review and recommendation!

  4. Because I seem to stay cold, I wear socks daily, even in the summer since I live with Polar Bears. The arch support, plus the ability to stay up and not around my ankles, are extremely important qualities in socks I wear. I haven't tried the Carhartt brand, but I definitely will now.

  5. They sound wonderful. I have the opposite problem. I cannot wear socks that are so tight around my calf that they dig into my flesh. I end up with feet that do not have proper circulation. Socks for me are only worn when absolutely necessary. Like you I would live my life barefoot if possible. I do not do socks or God Forbid, Knee highs....I would prefer slipping my feet bare into comfortable shoes with an insole that could be washed as needed. Oh the problems we have with our feet!

  6. Going to remember these - I sure do purchase a lot of socks in this house for family members and these sound really good - the idea that they don't slip down is very appealing

  7. I'm not familiar with the Carhartt name, but I do have some trail socks made from a Merino wool blend. I love them. As you say, they don't slide down in my shoes. I wear them with my slippers for a while before bed so that my feet are warm when I climb into bed.
