It's hard to find adult sized performance knee socks. Foot-fit is good. However, a lifetime of running and hiking and walking (I'm 71) has gifted me with well-developed calves, and it's really a challenge to get the socks up, and the fit at the knee is almost too snug. Good that they aren't baggy or droopy, but I'd be delig... Read Morehted if there were a more comfortable in-between place.
The circumference of the socks
The circumference of the socks made it impossible for me to put them on. I returned them.
Hey Patricia, thank you for the review. The measurements for these socks vary depending on the size but the top band remains the same regardless. The circumference measures in at 7" around without stretching. We can see how this could not work for a lot of people, so we've shared your feedback with our product team. If you'd like measurements on possible alternatives, feel free to reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/).
I've been told I am picky about what goes onto my body... unfortunately, after a serious automobile accident in 2006 I developed a medical condition called allodynia, which, among other things, is a hypersensitivity to contact. I simply cannot wear clothing that doesn't fit and feel right to me. Textures matter, too. These socks are "... Read More;not too." Not too thick or thin, not too padded (they don't bunch at the toe or heel). Not too warm or cool. The product could earn a bonus one-half star if it was just a tad longer so it could extend above the bottom of the kneecap and be folded down if necessary to prevent the sensation that it's a knee-length sock that isn't quite up to the knee. Overall, though, it's an outstanding fit and feel.
Tight in the calf
I love the feel and texture of this sock and the way it fits on my lower foot. Unfortunately I have large feet and I have a hard time fitting the calf portion of the sock over my foot. I find this to be a pretty common problem with large size socks and large person size calfs. Hopefully theyll stretch out over time.
Excellent sock for ski boots and western boots
These work very well with both my telemark ski boots and western street boots. They stay in place quite well. If you are looking for a padded shin (for skiing), these might not fit the bill for you, but it's not a factor for me. See my review of the crew sock for more detail about fit, etc.
You cannot beat these socks...
...and I dare you to even try! It is extremely difficult to find a lightweight, wool knee-high, especially in my size (5'3" with a shoe size of US 6.5/EUR 37). Many socks may say that they are made from wool, but a close inspection of a fabric tag reveals that wool is just a minor player. I wanted the real thing, with some nylon for durab... Read Moreility. Many worry that wool is itchy, but merino wool is very, very soft. I save these for casual wear and to work, saving thicker socks for hiking. I purchased these at a Patagonia retail store and a size small is just right.
Sliding down is a letdown
I bought these socks for hiking during the colder months, but under any kind of activity they keep sliding down my leg and bunching around my lower calf. Theyre too short for an over-the-calf sock. Im six feet tall (1.85m) and dont have long legs (30 inch inseam), although I do have muscular calves. They should be another 1½ -2 inches long to be ... Read Moreknee socks as advertised. Their positive side is that theyre good for casual wear when you dont mind having to pull them up throughout the day. They are odor-resistant, soft and well-constructed.
I wore these socks snowboarding mostly. They pill up very badly, which to me tells me they're disintegrating.
We're sorry to hear these socks were disappointing! While all knits pill to some degree, this sounds extreme. You'll want to be sure there's no unnecessary abrasion in the wash, like zippers or velcro. However, please know that we're happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) you return these under our Ironclad Guarantee, so please reach out.
Form fitting and comfortable
Great socks to wear for all seasons.I use these all year to fish with.They keep your'e feet warm in cold temps and cool in warm temps.My feet don't get swampy when it's hot in the summer and actually keep my feet nice and cool when the temps are up.Long lasting and I highly recommend them for anglers.
Good build, way too tight in calf
Based upon the material and build these would be great socks. However, the calfs are way too tight - probably even more than most compression socks. And, I'm saying this as someone who is 6'0" 170lb and a regular runner. If I wear these to the office or any casual situation, I'll get minor numbness in my feet in addition to the ... Read Moreuncomfortable clamping around the calf. If they weren't so tight, I'd buy 10 pairs. As they are, I can't wear them.
