Superb cushion, loose knit at top

Let's start with my having flat feet, which tire easily and quickly. The extra cushion of these socks is supportive and helpful. Let's move on to my living in Wisconsin and battling tick invasions when backpacking...I need my hiking socks to be tight around the tops so I can tuck my pant legs in. The loose knit tops hold my pant legs, but there are plenty of gaps between the yarn that ticks can/will/did infiltrate. Although they didn't make it to my skin, they were a pain to remove and I ended up with some large yarn loops from tugging at the ticks.

They feel great on my feet and wash nicely, and would get 5 stars from me if it weren't for the tick battle.
