I'm tall with long skinny calf/leg so these work great for me. They really do go over-the-knee and are perfect for folding down over boot tops. They wash well and are a comfortable weight- not heavy, but quite warm.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Barbara from Pennsylvania on Sunday, April 27, 2014bought these high socks to wear under my tall boots. Merino wool is the best ; warm and so comfortable.....
Reviewed by Quality Shopper from CT on Friday, April 11, 2014In love with the quality, comfort and fit; I bought two more after my first purchase. My only wish was to be able to get them in black or grey. In my experience, hosiery that are made to be thigh highs usually accomplish covering the knees and mid thigh because they are designed to comfortably hold the thigh with stretch. On the other hand, over the knee socks can't physically stay over your knee without either cutting off circulation or your knee in a straight stationary position because the knee is in constant motion!!! I read comments that stated they don't stay up over your knees yet,I decided to take a chance anyway and I am really glad that I did ... True to size with comfort, they held up excellently in the wash and dryer with no shrinkage !!! It's just amazing to get real quality woolens these days and I LOVE MERINO WOOL !!!
These Pantherella socks are one of my very BEST purchases from Sierra Trading Post !!! I hope that you will be able to get more, even though they are closeouts. My creative mind likes the suggestion about using a elastic band to keep them up ... Perhaps a modest sexy everyday garter ;-)
Thank You Sierra for Great Quality Bargains, Prompt delivery Great Professional Customer Service while introducing me to a fantastic socks manufacturer, in the UK. I guess you can tell I really Love these sexy socks ;-)
Reviewed by Karen from California on Wednesday, April 9, 2014These socks are so fine, that I bought 3 dozen pair at a fabulous closeout price. I've enjoyed wearing them so much, that I can't take them off. There is nothing like extra fine merino wool. You can check the world market on these Pantherella socks. You'll be hard pressed to ever find them again at this closeout price.
If you have trouble keeping them up, try using a wide elastic band around the top and roll the top down over the band. It works great. In days of old, long socks were kept up with short scarf ties. The top of the sock would be rolled down over the scarf and the ends of the scarf would hang down much like Scottish flashes.
I've really enjoyed them, and I know I may never see this same sort of opportunity again. Therefore, I bought a lot of them and would do so again!
Reviewed by WorthAction from Santa Fe, NM on Thursday, March 27, 2014Just didn't feel right. Thinner than I expected.
Reviewed by SDpyrmom from San Diego on Wednesday, March 26, 2014i bought several colors. they're cute with a shorter skirt and they keep you warm. they do slouch a bit, so you do have to pull them up.

“The depicted socks appear to be over-the-KNEE, yet in two different places, they are described as "over-the-calf." Big difference! What's the deal? And there's no information in the specs as to the length (in inches). That would be helpful info as well. Thanks.”
This sock is over the knee as you can see and rolled down at the top. The length of the sock is 29" from the bottom of the heel to the top.
