Quality, Versatile Sock

This is a great sock. It’s warm (but not bulky) and form-fitting (but not too tight, though some people with big calves might have issues). I’ve worn it while skiing and also in the board room…literally. It fits with dress shoes, athletic shoes, boots…you name it. I bought 14 pairs and plan to wear them over a lifetime.

Tight Fit

Over several years I bought 30 plus pairs of Darn Tough socks. Either mid-weight or heavy-weight socks in boot or knee high lengths. I love these socks however, I recently bought these LIGHT CUSHION SOCKS and was disappointed in the fit. These fit really tight. Had a heck of a time putting it on! I don't know if these light cushion socks are supposed to fit like this but I feel it would be uncomfortable to wear after a few hours of use.

OK but tight

I ordered the XL size as I have size 12 feet. The feet part fits fine but they are very tight around the ankles and achilles.
