No flaws and very comfy!

I routinely wear compression stockings to reduce swelling when I'm running errands and doing tasks that require extended sitting or standing, and I was looking for some new socks that didn't look so...ugly...as the ones put out by medical supply companies. Voila! These are pretty effective and comfortable, the couple of times I've worn them so far. I'd rate the compression as noticeable, but on the lighter end...helpful for people with minor circulatory insufficiency, but not enough control for serious swelling or post-injury compression (though they might still be an improvement over no compression for folks in the latter categories...and they're a heck of an improvement over medical beige!). The minimal padding on the bottom of the foot is not bulky, so shouldn't change how your shoes fit when you wear them. I wear about a 41 (women's 9-9.5) shoe, and the medium size socks are about as short in the foot as I'd want to go. I'm not cramped in the toes, but I wouldn't advise anyone with longer feet than mine to get a medium in this brand, unless they like a really cozy fit. The length of the leg is pretty long on me (I'm 5'6"), but I find that as long as I smooth the socks into place over my ankles and calves, without yanking upwards, they hit just under the crease of my knee. And did I mention I love the colors?
