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 bought these and another Smartwool compression sock. These are not as warm and I still have to wear a second pair of socks over these to keep my feet warm. I work in refrigerated conditions all year so I need warm socks. The compression in them is fine but a little hard to get off.

    I am a runner with a history of vascular issues. I have to wear waste-high compression stockings just to be functional.

    I thought I would try these for added benefit. They work great! I used them during my long training rums (20+ miles) when training for a marathon and they helped a lot. I now wear them every time I run.

    I also do triathlons and recommend to have them inside out with the foot part tucked in, then simply peel them over your foot and pull them up for a quick transition period. Since I have to wear the other compression stockings, these used to pull too much on the toe and make my toes hurt. Since I started the method of turning them inside out and simply placing my foot into the foot part first, I no longer have the problem of them being too tight on my toes.

    I highly recommend these socks.

    I have purchased MANY pairs of SmartWool socks from STP (price is fantastic of course). I have owned one pair of these compression socks for a year and they are great for running--really do make a difference. Just bought 2 more pairs. Give them a try if you've been considering compression for exercising.

    My daughter-in-law was complaining that her nursing socks were rubbing blisters on her toes. I order a couple of pair from Sierra trading post and she says these are great.

    On a daily basis, I wear prescription knee socks (30-40mmHg), for issues with one way valves and they make a big difference (not so much notice in performance, rather the reduction of swelling). They are expensive and generally come in black, a bland tan/brown and a couple of company's offer a
    white yarn like material. They do work well. For casual dress, when I might not be out the entire day, often I wear something like the SmartWool product,
    that while not offering the same ultra-firm compression, perform well and meet my expectations... at a fraction of the cost. The second batch of
    SmartWool I purchased are "seconds", but I've noted no discrepancies that would reduce performance or appearance

    • 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.
