NORTHFIELD, VT — May 18, 2023 — Darn Tough Vermont, the number one brand in the premium outdoor space and the fastest growing family owned American sock manufacturer, announces the merger of two sales territories into one territory – as it once was.

Bringing extensive knowledge in the footwear category specifically, the group boasts close to 50 years of combined experience.
