“How tall are crew socks? Looking at SmartWool Hiking Socks, Merino Wool, Midweight.”

  • Pulled all the way up, they come up just shy of my calf muscle (less than one inch shy). I am female and wear size 8.5 shoe. I guess if your foot is a little smaller they may come up a little higher.

  • The ones I got come up to the bottom of my calf when pulled all the way up. I'm 5'9" tall. Plenty tall enough to stay above the top of ankle high boots. They are great socks.

  • They are much higher than they appear--much higher than typical crew socks. I'd say around mid-calf on my husband. They're wonderful socks, of course, but the height caused us to return them.

  • About half way up your calf
