I am glad to find these socks again as they are warm/cool and do not constrict the leg as do other socks. They are NOT support socks but they have plenty of support to stay up but not too tight, which along with breathability is the reason I use them. (even in the summer) They wear out on bottom before elastic in leg gives out. I do not believe I have had any in which the elastic has gone out, over several years now. They yellow as they are washed but my favorite socks ever! Go Wigwam wool blend!
