Great compression sock. I use this after my workouts as past of my recovery. The fit is snug , but not too tight around the calf and shin. It could be a little tighter around the foot but I have small feet.
I gave it four stars because I didn't realize until my second wear that there was a hole in the top. It's possible it ripped while I was pulling the sock up but I didn't notice or hear any tear before. Even so, I would think the material would withhold since it should be a tight fit. It's also possible it came this way and I never noticed. Overall great sock, just disappointed so soon with the hole and debating whether I should order another.

These socks were tight but did exactly what they are supposed to do - got the blood flowing! Really felt the difference. Only complaint is that they made me look like I had fat knees when I wore them under long running leggings!

Compressions Socks Sizing
I purchased these socks just before a half marathon, where they had their first outing. They worked well and I must say that I felt better after the race than I ever had before. My only comment would be that I emailed customer services to check sizing as couldn't work this out from the website. I was advised small would be a 4-6 and a large would be a 6-8. I am a dress shoe 6 but run in a 7 to allow for swelling and I have wide feet. I would say that the socks were a little baggy in places on my feet and I could have probably done with getting the smaller size.

Fab compression socks
I bought these just before the London Marathon - I've worn them on many of my recovery runs - they are great - excellent fit, high on the knee, very tight all over (as meant to be) and they don't slide around so the pattern stays square on your leg! A great buy, I'd buy a second pair in another colour if available!
