5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and effective, April 18, 2012
It's important to note than while the medium fits in the nude compression socks, I need a large in these. The weave is different which apparently affects the stretch. However, in the large size, I find the socks come all the way to my knee and do a great job at reducing swelling and keeping my legs comfortable. Because I very much like the compression effect of the nude knee highs, I decided I could use some dark colored ones as well and bought a pair in the same medium size I was used to. I wear a size 9 shoe and have wide calves, but since I was already aware that the medium fit in the other style, I didn't read the size chart here. I should have and would have known to get the larger size. The medium size only comes part way up my calf and is too snug in the foot as well.

These hose are really a god-send if you have a problem with your lower legs swelling throughout the day. I find if I put them on first thing in the morning, my legs don't swell nearly as much as they were when I sat too long or was on my feet too long. The black socks have a little more heft than the nude style which is like regular knee high hose, but more sturdy due to the compression. These are like a slightly ribbed trouser sock (hence the name :). They stay up all day and feel good, although mostly I'm not aware I'm wearing anything different. I definitely recommend them, although do suggest reading the sizing chart to be sure you're getting the proper size.
