These area great compression socks at a great price. I bought additional pairs after success with my first pair. Compression feels just right for me.

Many of the comments posted mention that they are too tight to even pull on. As a runner with large calves, I can say that these socks are definitely... Read More

    I wore these socks from Michigan to Penn., they fit perfectly and felt comfortable and warm. They held up nicely, and hand washed beautifully.

    They aren't quite as supportive as the medical grade support socks but are definitely a much cuter option for daily use as support for standing/running around the pharmacy all day. I usually have to change socks and shoes once during a 12 hour shift, but these really do help.

    I'm 5'2" with shoe 7-7.5 and I had been buying these smartwool socks for a while. The last 2 pairs I received were nothing like they used to be. I ordered these in gray M. While the compression on the foot is appropriate, the length of the sock disappointed me. They barely reach above my calf, which makes them constrict and cause pain on my leg. The other pair I received on a different style was a disappointment too. The sock reaches above my calf but there's practically no compression on the foot. Feels just like a regular sock. I didn't return them because I lost the packing slip and I had already worn them also. But I probably won't be ordering these compression socks anymore since I don't know what I'm getting and they're not quite cheap either.

    Great compression and warm. Perfect when you do not want a think sock.

    I accidentally ordered these in small, but learned there are no mediums left. Instead of returning them, I tried wearing them and they worked great. I wear a 7.5 shoe, so I was concerned that these might squash my feet, and more specifically make my bunion worse. No worries! The toe area is roomy so there is no compression on the toes! I'm very happy with these socks!
