Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dkhntr from Arkansas on Wednesday, February 8, 2017Not too tight for thick calves, thin upper but padded foot. I like 'em.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by D Mo from Rhode Island on Friday, January 6, 2017I always have good luck with buying ski socks/winter socks from STP and the streak continues. I'm looking for value for money spent and these socks do it. Truly "over the calf" socks so they don't roll down into your boots while you are riding(skiing). They are lightweight, which I like because my feet are always toasty when outside in the winter. These are not "beefy" socks. Looking forward to seeing how they wear.
Reviewed by Brewer from Pacific NW on Sunday, December 11, 2016Considering brand and who designed these I was really disappointed. These replaced a pair of coolmax socks that lasted close to twenty years. These developed a hole in the upper toe at a seem on their third wearing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Musiccitybill from Nashville on Friday, December 9, 2016These socks are wonderful. They provide cushing where needed and don't bind just above the ankles. Wear hiking boots with inserts for plantar fasciitis. These socks help.

Yes, if you like a light to med/lt sock. I have hiked with them and wear them to work all the time. My feet and calves feel good at the end of a day when I wear these. I am a person who doesn't layer their socks, and also my boots are hand made for my foot. They have a slight "compression" feel to them. May be the best sock I've ever had.
Agree completely with other answer, and the extra cushioning in heel and toe areas make these very comfortable for hiking. I wore them breaking in some new hiking boots and they were great.
