I fly over 100k a year for work and wear these every time I get on a plane. They have significantly reduced swelling in my legs after those long flights and with the wool I can wear them for 48hrs + of travel without any offensive odors! Going to order another pair or two and start using them for bi... Read More

    I don't have particularly fat feet or ankles, but I should have gotten a size larger--these socks are TIGHT! Beautifully made, insulating without being heavy. I just didn't realize...

    I've been training for a marathon and wearing these compression socks for the long runs and they are awesome. They are not too tight and will be great on airplanes, etc. Had to buy a second pair! Thanks for making them such a good deal!

    Great socks! I wore them as soon as I received the package and they were wonderful. My legs were much less fatigued by the end of a long day of standing on a hard surface.

    Not great. Too small and tight for a small male teenager's foot!
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kat from KCMO on Thursday, October 02, 2014
    I chose these for the relatively low price for compression socks to wear while traveling (overnight flight to Europe from US). I usually wear compression calf sleeves for running, but those tend to let blood pool in your feet on airplanes. These were great. Not too too tight, but did do the job. I was a bit concerned that they would be too short, but the length was just fine. I did also run in these and they worked well for that also.

    • Answer For me the sizing recommendation was accurate. I can't compare the compression to others since this was my first pair of compression socks, however, the compression is definitely there, yet not overbearing. I bought these to try for work (12.5hr shifts) and I would recommend them.

    • Answer I wear a men's shoe size 10.5-11 and i buy the Large in these which says US men's 9-11.5 and they fit perfect. My wife wears women's 8 so she got the Medium and they fit her great. So I would say sizing is spot on to what they say. Compression says 20-30mmHg in the description, but I don't see it on the packaging. Comparing to the many other brands I've tried though they do feel 20-30mmHg. I've tried many different brands and materials for 20-30 compression socks and these are by far the most comfortable, I love them. they are soft, and breath good. I'm very glad I found these. great deal if you wait for a good sale.

    • Answer True to size. Great fit. They are extremely comfortable and fit properly. I would describe them firm compression. They really help with recovery from fatigue.

    • Answer I had a blood clot with my first pregnancy (over 7 years ago) plus I stand on my feet over 10 hours a day so a good compression sock is a must. I purchased these a second time because I found them to be superior over the Futuro brand in comfort and compression. If your looking for a sock with light compression, these socks are not for you. The compression is pretty strong, which is what I was looking for. And the material withstands washings (without drying) a lot better than nylon stockings.

      As far a sizing, I wear a 6.5 to a 7, so I went with the small. I was worried about sizing because I've got big athletic calves (15" circumference.) However, the small seems to fit pretty good. Vary rarely, by the end of a 10+ hour day, they may feel a little tight where they meet my calf. Yet I'd still order the same size.

    • Answer Compression? Not sure. Check the SmartWool website, maybe? I wear compression stockings for purely medical reasons, and these are definitely athletic compression and not as... compressiony. But they are definitely different from normal socks.

      Because they're compression, they look small but stretch (with a tiny bit more effort than normal socks). Both me and my husband have them and we are both on the larger side of our sizes. My husband wears a size 14 shoe, and his feet are very wide. He also has thick, cyclist calfs. I bought him the men's XL and they are totally fine for him. Not too small in the foot and they stay up over his calfs. I have thick, cyclist calfs, too, and the women's M works for me. I wear a 39 shoe (about 8 or 8.5, but also wide) and they are perfect for me.

      I think they're well worth the discounted price.

    • Answer I have the yellow (green) pair in Med. I am a women's size US8.5 and these fit perfect on my feet. I am 5'5" and the length is also perfect--they cover my calves up to my knee. They are tight enough to give good compression but without restricting movement of my toes and without being too tight at the top. (I have a different smartwool compression sock that is a little too tight on my feet and hat leaves a deep red line around the top, so I prefer this pair waaay better).

  • Question “How long are these socks? Is 'over the calf' to the knee?”
    Asked on 1/6/2014 4:55:04 PM by Utahbard from Utah
    • Answer Generally over the calf covers the calf but does not go quite up to the knee.
