These are great support socks. They wear well -- I have had some brands of support hose which lost much of their support after just a few wearings but these last quite awhile. They are very comfortable and offer about the hightest amount of support you can get without a prescription, I believe. (That compression does make them a little tough to put on but that goes with the territory). Only problem I have had with them is sizing -- I would have thought that I fell solidly in the Large-size category, perhaps even extra-large but the large size can come up past the bend in my knee where they bunch up and interfere with circulation rather than helping. If I have more swelling in my calves when I put them on, they usually fit perfectly but since reducing the swelling is a goal, I think I will try the Medium size next time and see how that works. With a proper fit, though, these are great socks and a real bargain if you compare them to some of the other brands of compression hosiery.

Bad veins runs in the family, and I've been wearing these socks since the 80's. Ownership of the brand has changed hands over the years and quality has been on a steady decline for 10 years or more. I believe they used to make an extra firm dress sock, but now firm is the tightest you can get. It takes at least 2 pairs of the current socks to do the job 1 pair used to do. They've kept the price relatively constant so something had to give, and that something is the quality. The latest version is little more than a tight dress sock. A far cry from the version they sold back in the 80's and 90's. I still have some of those socks and they are still more firm after all these years than new ones of the current version. Pathetic. And what's even worse is they are still better than most, if not all, of the competition so there's little hope for change, unless of course it's an even further decline in quality. I'm saying "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend" only because I know of nothing better on the market at this time. But rest assured, just as soon as I find a firmer black dress sock that last, similar to the old Futuro socks, I will stop buying these socks immediately. I am sick and tired of my legs hurting because someone decided to cut quality to keep price and profit margins constant.

      Great for support when you are on your feet all day.I wish I would have used them earlier in my life. After using thies for the last 5 years, I have found they will last a lot longer if you don't use the dryer! Air dry on a hanger!

            Have used it daily since receiving them. Works real well and felt so much better now, swelling of ankle and leg reduced considerably almost back to normal just in two days.

                I use the product every day I plan to do extra walking or standing on my feet. My legs feel less fatigued and it prevents pooling of blood that plain dress socks provided.

                Help to prevent aching legs. With proper care they are very long lasting (years in some cases) even when washed dozens of times per year.

                  Bought these for my husband after a mild accident with the dog. He loves them, had me buy him several more, and even though his injury is healed, he still wears them everyday. He wants me to order him more in lighter colors.
