I was looking for not-heavy wool socks to wear with (non-snow) boots and ordered these, having purchased SmartWool short socks before. Based on the reviews on the website, I ordered up a size since I do NOT like too-tight socks. Good plan -- the mediums fit well and I wear a size 6 shoe (machine washed the socks and line-dried them -- no shrinkage). They ARE rather narrow in the leg, as mentioned by some reviewers but are OK for me, with normal-sized calves. They are NOT itchy and are just the right thickness to wear with dressier boots, with which I usually wear rather-thin cotton socks but need more warmth in cold weather.
