Unfortunately I have had to return these socks as they developed a hole on the second occasion I wore them

Not quite right compression socks
I bought the bigger size as my shoe size is an 8 and that is what the sizing seemed to suggest, but these are much looser than my other brand compression socks and didn't give me the same support.
The second time I wore them I discovered a run in them which was disappointing. The styling is great and the colour I loved, but unfortunately the performance just wasn't there.
I love Sweaty Betty products normally and am a repeat shopper, but sadly not for the socks.

Perfect for runners
I love these for running on the track, off road and even the gym. They are not too tight around the foot like other compression socks I have worn in the past - yet are tight and compressing on the calf. They are a perfect length. Would recommend if you run on the track - also good for recovery! I love to wear these with the power capris or a pair of shorts. They also are supportive on the foot, great for use with spikes!

Not tight enough and laddered
Not too impressed with these socks, not nearly tight enough on calfs despite having brought a size small, also laddered on first wear on both sides despite me being incredibly careful how I put them on, real disappointment, would have expected the material to have been better quality.

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!
