Rated 4 out of 5 by Security Nice Socks
I'm a RN and on my feet all night. I've also developed all sorts of tendinitis in my feet as a result. These don't necessarily help with that issue but they do help keep the swelling down in my feet. Just wish there was an option to but just black or just a specific color/pattern as well as the black/color combo.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Crazy Cat Lady Linda very disappointed
I ordered these in a M/L since I wear a size 8 to 8-1/2 shoe. I have average calves and narrow feet, and I cannot get these socks on! They are so stiff and tight, I don't have the strength in my hands and arms to stretch them over my feet! I can't return them, because I ordered them in Sept., while out of state. The time frame for returns had passed by the time I got home. So, I have spent approx. $50 for nothing. I am extremely disappointed, because I thought the compression would help with the neuropathy in my legs and feet. Will never order socks like these again.
Rated 2 out of 5 by SNewYorkVillage Calf measurement needed
These are great if they fit. They are nice, not to thick, and would have been perfect, however I can't get them on. I measured by calf and tried to stretch the sock in the calf area as far as I could and measure it. My calves are too large to fit.
It would be great going forward if you would provide a calf measurement for socks in addition to the shoe size.
I asked around and that is an important measurement.
This is the reason for the low star rating. lack of info regarding calf measurement as part of the sizing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by misfits Great compression socks
These worked well but very hard to get on. I had to have help. A little
Pricy. Material was very strong and gave me good support.
Rated 5 out of 5 by claud49 wonderful but.....
As I noted in the title these socks were/are wonderful. They are soft, substantial and the compression is just enough to help with swelling and leg fatigue. Unfortunately for me, as hard as I tried the wool content of the sock bothered me and I had to send them back. I wish this company would also consider making a compression sock without the wool. If so, I will buy it in an instant. Sockwell makes a superior product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loves Clothes Big legs/good socks. use rubber gloves to pull up
I don't usually have to wear compression socks but have had to in the past when I was hospitalized and also when in humid hot areas. When I did buy the others I paid this much for one pair and these work so much better for me than the other ones. I also tried the legacy ones and they did nothing for me. I have very large calves and small feet so I bought the s/m and when I first put them on it was a struggle and they seemed pretty tight but as I had them on it worked and was not as tight. I brought them with me when I was on a cruise and did a lot of walking in hot humid weather and they worked so much better than the ones the drug stores sell and use in the hospital. I never swelled up or had to take water pills even after I got home. one thing that may help to get these on is to put on a pair of cheap gloves like the kind for washing dishes. I first get the stockings over my toes and my heel if I can and then use the gloves to bring them up the rest of the way. It helps me a lot and no creases. They come up to my knee.

I have a 15 1/2 inch calf circumference and 7 1/2 shoe size. I chose the M/L size sock. They seemed too stiff and snug around calf initially, but softened after washing and feel great all day. They keep my feet warm without sweating, stave off leg fatigue and make me stand taller!
Rated 5 out of 5 by midwestdasiy Good Quality
These are excellent compression socks. I ordered several pairs, and after walking in them ordered more. If you are on your feet a lot or enjoy walking, these will keep your feet from getting fatigued, yet don't look like "medical socks". If you have a very thick leg these might not be for you.
