The Ska (Stow, Ohio)

Great quality as always and fast shipping. I can see these working well in all weather conditions. They stay up without being too tight and have just enough cushion.

If you don't need this height then buy Tactical Boot with 50% more Merino

I'm keeping them, but meh...I used to wear a suit to work & looked for over the calf socks to still look classy with my legs crossed, and these would do that but otherwise not as comfortable as an all-wool dress sock. I also bought the Tactical Boot which is more comfortable in my casual shoes and has 62% Merino and seems to have thicker cushioning that wouldn't fit into my dress shoes, but that's O.K. because my gut likely can't fit too comfortably into my collection of fancy suits from when I was younger and more fit!

Much better than military issued.

I serve in the Army and always wore army issued wool socks. After wearing these socks I understand now what I was missing. No more rolling down my leg and chaffing.
