spendy but comfortable and seem to aid recovery Although still on the spendy side for a pair of socks, these were the best value I could find in compresion type socks. They seem well made and are comfortable to wear, whether working out in them or lounging around afterwards. They have additional padding in the foot and ankle areas. I wear a size 12 shoe and have about a 15.5 inch calf. The large size fit me well and as these are sized for your feet vs. your calf circumference. I won’t go to a smaller size even if I had skinny calves as the sock padding along the foot fits perfect. They are a bit long and I need to fold them down about an inch or so to keep them from going up onto the knee, however doesn’t seem to effect the comfort or wear at all. The large should work on a person up to 6,6″ of so without issue.

Excellent quality sports compression socks I’ve purchased (spent half a fortune) many brands of socks this year and have documented the following virtues and drawbacks of my purchases in attempt to allow you, the consumer, to have an easier time than me navigating the sea of compression sock choices. Note that some are dress socks (best for dress shoes) and others are sports socks (sneakers or any sports related shoes cleats etc.). You could certainly wear the sports socks in a business casual work environment.

HUGE, noticeable difference! I LOVE these socks. I’m a nurse and will be on my feet for most of my 12.5+ hour shift. I had heard from many other nurses how much of a difference compression socks would make in leg fatigue, so I ordered a pair of these. I also ordered another pair from the same maker, but a different model (one of their “recovery” models). I FAR prefer THIS pair with the extra padding on the sole.For those wondering about the sizing, I wear a women’s 10.5 shoe and have a 17.5″ calf and the medium fits me well, especially in the foot. I couldn’t imagine going with the Large, as the size chart says I should wear. Definitely tight around the calf, but I like that.
