I've been a SmartWool fan for years - a high quality product and STP's unbeatable prices. When I saw these compression socks, I had to

    I bought several pairs in different colors. These are marked irregular and you can't see any difference. Once you put them on it becomes a little more obvious. I bought XL's and I have a size 14 foot. Some were tight and some were too short. If you have a regular size foot and are not too tall this might not be an issue.

    I won't send them back, it is not worth the time and the postage so I will see what I can do with them.

    I haven't worn compression socks but wanted to try them when I race. These socks are very comfortable -- thin enough to easily fit in running shoes without feeling bunched up, and very supportive. I'll be wearing them as I train through the winter and into the spring as I begin racing again.

    This triathlete's legs feel so much better after a hard run or ride if I wear these socks. Another great place to wear them is long plane flights, where blood seems to pool into swollen ankles and tight shoes if wearing regular socks. Smartwool is a brand that I've trusted and enjoyed for years but I didn't know they made compression socks until I saw them at Sierra Trading Post. I ordered two pairs for myself and two as gifts!

    Very comfortable. soft and warm and not thick at all. Good compression. I like these socks alot. Don't know what makes them seconds.

    I love mine because they provide moderate compression on my leg/calf but leave my toes uncrowded. I also have medical grade compression socks for all day work wear (I'm on my feet) and these are good, but not quite as tight. Good for cold walks, weekend wear, and even winter runs for me. They would be great for most folks when travelling and sitting all day. My hubby got some too but he feels they are uncomfortably tight on his legs, even though we both are thin people and we each ordered in our respective proper sizes. Why the difference of opinion? Well, it might be that I have more of a venous problem (light edema and varicose veins) while he has no varicos veins but does have some arterial blockage (calf cramps). Two good features are that the toe/foot is not under compression, and that the top band is not seem any tighter on the calf than the body of the sock.

  • Question “Where is the sizing chart for women? I wear a size 9.5 shoe.”
    Asked on 11/3/2014 9:37:14 AM by Michelle from Ontario
    • Answer I also wear a women's 9.5 shoe. The size Large fits perfectly.
      Answered on 11/3/2014 10:24:58 AM by Megan from Chicago
    • Answer If you place your cursor on the "small, medium, or large" options/buttons, then a small dialogue box should appear with the proper sizes for both men and women. If you are a 9.5, then a medium would be your best bet...but you are on the edge. The medium 7-9.5 in women's sizing. Different brands run different sizings, you might want to find a brand that includes the 9.5 as not being either the max or min size option.
      Answered on 11/3/2014 11:11:07 AM by Woodsdeepin from Kentucky
    • Answer Not sure. I often find that the sizing charts don't help me. For me as a size 8 shoe with about a 13" calf, the smalls were way too small. I've got two pairs of Large teal colored ones that work well, though at the end of a 10 hour shift, there's a red indentation on the back of my legs. A pair of the black Large compression ones seem a lot smaller, and not wearable for work. Not sure if that's a effect of the "factory seconds" lot. My guess is that the calf size matters more for these than the foot size...

    • Answer I wear 9 1/2 womens too, I bought a Large and I couldn't even get them on.

    • Answer My experience with shoes and socks are women's sizes are 1.5 to 2 sizes below a mens (e.g.; women's size 8 will be man's size 6 or 6.5). The same crosses over for socks. I suggest you consider your sock size a women's 10 and look for what would fit a men's 8. I have these socks and they run a titch on the small side, even when being careful to line dry them.... Regardless - love the socks! Have 2 pairs - black and off-white....

    • Answer just put ur cursor on a size s/m/l and it will tell u what size shoe it fits
      Answered on 11/3/2014 7:16:33 PM by john trucker from new york
    • Answer Michelle, I wear a 9.5 shoe, also. I order the medium but alsways stretch the length of the foot when I wash them and never put them in the dryer. I tried the large one time but they are too long and bunch up in the toe of my shoes. Be aware that if you need compression around your ankle, these are not the best socks. If you look closely, you'll see what looks like a narrow ribbing around the ankle. That has less compression than the part above the ankle. This allows my repaired ankle to swell. Product #1940p has even compression, if that is what you need.

    • Answer Hi Michelle,

      I wear a size 8.5 women's shoe but I have large calves so I buy the large compression socks. I guessed and it has worked out well.
