Most winter socks cut off the circulation around my ankles and cause cold feet. I wear size 10 shoes but I jump up one recommended size on the sizing chart and buy the el-pine XL size socks because they aren't too tight around the ankles. I wear them over cotton crew socks because they don't itch that way. They keep my feet warm as long as my boots have wiggle room so I wear winter boots two sizes larger than my normal shoe size. I also wear the el-pine's around the house inside sheepskin slippers 2 sizes larger than my shoe size so blood gets to my feet OK. It took me many years to learn that giving my feet some room will keep them warmer and happier. The grey twist is the only color El Pine that is manufactured in XL size. These socks wear well. I love these socks and recommend them highly.
