    These were purchased for compression for an international trip. The toe is loose fitting and calf just right dynamics.

    I have very slender legs, but these socks are still so tight they hurt. It took forever to get them on and even longer to get them off. My legs hurt for hours after removing them.

    I wouldn't recommend these socks to anyone.

    Socks are a little tight in the calf region. Otherwise good product

    I wanted to love these. I'm an ER nurse and on my feet all day. Thought these would be great. They're weirdly tight around the ankle. The rest fit well. Very well made thought. Returning unfortunately. Should work for all you super skinny ankle folks, though!

    This triathlete's legs feel so much better after a hard run or ride if I wear these socks. Another great place to wear them is long plane flights, where blood seems to pool into swollen ankles and tight shoes if wearing regular socks. Smartwool is a brand that I've trusted and enjoyed for years but I didn't know they made compression socks until I saw them at Sierra Trading Post. I ordered two pairs for myself and two as gifts!

    I am a physician, on my feet all day and all week. These excellent, modest compression socks eliminate those end-of-the-day aching feet. Also reign in those varicose veins with a fashionable product. I am glad that I gave them a try. Now I wear nothing but smartwool compression socks.

    I am a nurse and work long days. My knees were killing me, my ankles were swelling up (I'm only in my 30s!) and these socks really helped with both of those problems. The wool is light and moisture-wicking; the socks are very comfortable (I tried the cotton "nurse" socks and gave them away). I would highly recommend these socks to anyone who is on his/her feet for long periods of time. Also, this site has the best prices ever!

    i use this every time i fly. i haven't felt a noticeable difference, but i have the peace of mind knowing i'm doing something extra to combat Deep Vein Thrombosis. it takes a bit of an effort to put on / take off, but once it's on it's comfortable.

    This security employee has been looking for an affordable answer to tired, hurting feet towards the end of the week. These work. Thanks, STP, for an affordable answer after trying so many more expensive failures.
