Not my favorite, but still pretty good

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mommy Kat from Eastern VA on Thursday, January 1, 2009
These are my least favorite SmartWool socks. For one thing, I don't like the heathery colors. I want socks that scream "NOTICE ME!" even if they are mostly hidden. The top band on these is a bit binding. I have toned, large calves, and even at the crew length--which falls low on my leg--these fit more tightly than I would like, but are loose in the part below the band, so I get a compression mark each time I use them. The fabric is the same fabulous stuff SmartWool uses in all of their items, so they wick well, keep my tootsies warm but not too hot, and are worth every penny of their price tag, even more so with clearance pricing like I received. Good socks, but not the "goodest" I've seen from these folks.
